The Cyber System Security Group in the United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) has an intern position in the area of hardware security.  Candidates meeting a substantial subset of the criteria listed below are encouraged to apply.

Today’s global supply chain makes the chain-of-custody unworkable. The global economic pressures are driving integrated circuits (IC) design and manufacturing to foreign soil and out of US control to ensure trust and assurance. The changing semiconductor industry, the increasingly sophisticated adversaries, are making the hardware supply chain assurance extremely challenging. The Cyber System Security group at UTRC is initiating innovative research and technology development in the topic area of hardware supply chain assurance, to provide a holistic technological solution of end-to-end chain of custody, from chips, printed circuit board, to components and systems.

Minimum: M.S. candidate in Electrical or Computer Engineering with relevant courses study.  Candidates must be enrolled in a degree granting program. 

Preferred: Ph.D. candidate in Electrical or Computer Engineering with relevant courses study and research experience.  Candidate must be enrolled in a degree granting program.

The candidate should have a strong background in hardware security, including best security practices, attack surface and vulnerability analysis, countermeasures and mitigation techniques, and intrusion detection systems.


Successful candidates will be expected to

  • Have an in-depth knowledge of security design of system on chips (SoC) and PCB
  • Have research experience in circuit design against reverse engineering (RE)
  • Work on hard problems independently with little supervision, yet assuring good coordination with team members to achieve project goals
  • Be a strong team player in a highly collaborative and team-oriented environment
  • Communicate effectively to both technical peers and management
