The Center for Interacting Urban Networks (CITIES) and the Center for Cyber Security (CCS) at NYUAD are jointly inviting scientific proposals for the activation of an interdisciplinary research project at the crossroads of both centers. The ideal interdisciplinary project should touch on aspects related to cities and cyber-security, and propose research that truly reflects the vision of both, CITIES and CCS.
To learn more about the two centers, their vision, and research goals please visit: CITIES and CCS. The selected project will receive funding for a two-year post-doctoral position and one full month of summer salary per year to be distributed among the project PIs.
In line with the NYUAD vision, this program is designed to foster collaboration among faculty from different research centers and divisions, and it is open to any NYUAD faculty. The proposal must involve two faculty members, with at most one affiliated with either Center (e.g. either a faculty member from each of the two funding centers, a faculty member from one of the two funding centers, and an external faculty member, or two external faculty members).
Proposals are due by the end of the day on Sunday, January 10, 2021. They are expected to be around three pages long and should follow this template. All proposals will be reviewed by a committee representing both CITIES and CCS, and a single project will be selected.
