The Department of Cyber Intelligence and Security (CIS) housed in the nation’s one and only College of Security and Intelligence at the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU-PC) in Prescott, AZ, invites applications for multiple tenure-track faculty positions at the assistant and associate professor levels.
New programs at Embry-Riddle and the College demonstrate that we are excelling at much more than just aviation! Our accredited BS CIS program is now over 5 years old and in candidacy for the NSA’s Center of Academic Excellence (NSA CAE-CD) designation. We just started our MS CIS program in fall ’18. We have a state-of-the-art laboratory and an upcoming Cyber Warfare Range with isolated network facilities supporting a variety of activities and research.
As a faculty candidate you should have demonstrated ability or possess industry experience to design, develop, and teach undergraduate and graduate courses in CIS or a related discipline. We are interested in CIS subject areas, such as digital forensics; ethical hacking and pen testing; OS, database system, and blockchain security; mobile, cloud computing, and virtualization security; cyber data science; cyber-physical system and Internet-of-Things security; but other subject areas will be considered as warranted. You will also participate in the development of our Cyber Lab and our upcoming Cyber Warfare Range.
In addition to teaching and university service such as mentoring and committees, you are expected to engage in professional and scholarly activities. Our university has several initiatives that encourage faculty members to engage in STEM research and apply to internal and external funding opportunities. Excellent interpersonal skills, written and oral communications skills and a strong command of the English language are required.
ERAU-PC is a small, private, not for profit, residential university in the mountains of Arizona. Low student/faculty ratio interactions are highly valued and is central to the university appeal.

Our Bachelors program has already placed students at government agencies and DoD as well as private organizations such as American Express, Amazon, Cerner Healthcare, GoDaddy, Honeywell, Intel, Mitsubishi, Raytheon, and T-Mobile, to name a few.
