The Research and Development team of the Center for Cybersecurity Innovation of the Texas A&M University- Central Texas led by Dr. Anitha Chennamaneni is hiring multiple positions in the area of Cybersecurity, Software Engineering, AI, and Data Analytics. The R&D team of the Center for Cybersecurity Innovation carries out research activities in cybersecurity and AI and is currently expanding its research activities to explore several emerging use cases of next-generation AI and deep learning algorithms, privacy preservation techniques and architectures for cyber-threat detection and mitigation.

The successful candidate will work on a project supported by the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate. In this project, the candidate will build practical AI techniques for cybersecurity anomalies detection. Among many tasks, the candidate will conduct experiments examining the performance of AI techniques in real-world cybersecurity-related settings. The project will also investigate cutting-edge techniques for privacy preservation.

Texas A&M University-Central Texas was established in 2009 as an upper level undergraduate and graduate institution within the Texas A&M University System. In 2010, the U.S. Army donated 600+ acres of land for our campus. A&M-Central Texas is located on the northern edge of the beautiful Texas Hill Country in Killeen, Texas, a city of about 120,000 (not including the 50,000+ on Fort Hood, which is the largest Army installation in the world). Killeen is approximately an hour north of Austin, and is situated within the I-35 corridor, one of the fastest trans-metropolitan regions in North America. This area is known for its low cost of living, friendly people, cultural diversity, and its well-developed infrastructure. All positions are security-sensitive. Applicants are subject to a criminal history investigation, and employment is contingent upon the institution's verification of credentials and/or other information required by the institution's procedures, including the completion of the criminal history check.

Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action/Veterans/Disability Employer committed to diversity.
