Cyber Research & Analytics Foundation Internship Opportunity


The Cyber Research & Analytics Foundation’s mission is to educate the public about cyber threats, and inform individuals about how they can protect themselves against cyber intrusion and privacy exploitation. In addition, we research threats to U.S. critical infrastructure, with a specific focus on non-economic cyber espionage.

The Foundation has opened an office at the ISU Research Park, and seeks student interns with an interest in United States technology and cyber policy as it relates to cyber security at the federal, state, local and civilian sectors.

We are currently engaged with ISU and state government officials on cyber issues, and welcome the active participation of students toward the success of these efforts.

Focus:

  1. Interns may focus on specific cyber and technology policy issues that interest them, and/or participate in the Foundation’s research projects. Research may focus on US technology policy, digital democracy and elections, the confluence of cyber and traditional intelligence, etc.
  2. Students with technical knowledge and skills may participate in practical, hands-on, research projects, and should at a minimum possess the following technical skills:
    • Proficiency with least one programming language
    • Knowledge of internet protocols and network packet analysis
    • Working knowledge of Linux and related client/server systems

Regardless of where your interests lie, you should possess a strong work ethic, and ability to work independently.

Students may work at the ISU Research Park office space or remotely.

Interested students will please send a cover letter, short (2-3 page) writing sample, and resume to: Info@cyber-research.org.
