"No matter how many infection chains we break, we save lives," was the guiding principle of CISPA Faculty Prof. Dr. Cas Cremers, when he embarked on work on the DP-3T project just over a year ago. Based on this project and with the support of nearly 40 CISPA researchers, the German Corona warning app was created. The effort has more than paid off, as an initial assessment of the effectiveness of the Corona Warning App by the Robert Koch Institute and the German Federal Ministry of Health shows: More than 110,000 users tested positive after receiving a warning from the app and were able to use this knowledge to protect themselves and others. Time for a retrospective.

Recruitment of highly talented students and young researchers in the fields of cybersecurity and privacy is a core element of CISPA's development and growth strategy. Finding the right people is very important to us. Maybe you're one of them!
Our goal is to hire, train and accompany future researchers in all stages of their scientific careers, to help them advance as learners, from bachelor's and master's degrees to doctorates and positions as young researchers at both postdoctoral and faculty level.
No matter if you’re just starting your career or already have experience, we want to offer all of you an inspiring, international and competitive, yet cooperative and above all enjoyable working environment for your research and education. We strongly believe that, here, you will be able to develop your full potential.
