S3C2 Post Doc

We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher to join the Secure Software Supply Chain Center (S3C2) based out of North Carolina State University (NCSU) in Raleigh, NC, USA. S3C2 recently received a $9M grant from the National Science Foundation. S3C2 is comprised of researchers at NCSU, Carnegie Mellon, University of Maryland, and Paderborn University.

In the position, the postdoc can complete his or her doctoral research but be willing to apply knowledge of empirical software engineering and measurement to cybersecurity.

We’d like to scientifically answer questions like “Are open source packages in the [npm, PyPI, etc.] getting more secure over time?” “Is there evidence that using software security practices during development leads to more secure products?” “Which are the most critical open source packages … and what does it scientifically mean to be a critical package anyway?”
