The Post

We are looking for Cyber Data Analysts to join the CyberPeace Institute. In an age where the sophistication and hybrid nature of cyberattacks is deepening the accountability gap, we are looking for candidates with hands on expertise in big data analysis in the context of large scale cyberattacks and cyber operations, who possess a drive to protect civilian populations.


In close cooperation with the Institute’s digital forensic investigators, data scientists, and software engineers, successful candidates will be responsible for undertaking analytical work of complex heterogeneous big data sets (i.e. live compromise indicators, OSINT, forensic extraction) and delivering analytical reports. Whilst upholding the highest data protection standards, the jobholders will ensure that the CyberPeace Institutes analytical environment stays innovative and relevant amidst the rapid evolution of cyberoperations.


We are looking for committed and altruist individuals, with strong humanitarian values. We are looking for candidates who are passionate about the exponential impact of converging technologies in cyberspace and want to leverage their unique skills for the common good. If you want to support the most vulnerable, and if you wish to work in a demanding yet challenging and rewarding environment, we areexcited to receive your application. This is a tremendous opportunity for an individual to drive ground-breaking technical and societal responses in an emerging area, to effectively help foster collective intelligence against cyberattacks, and to promote peace in cyberspace.
