Research Analyst (Part-Time)

The Coalition on Secure Technology is a campaign to raise awareness of the risks associated with the use of Cellular IoT modules (CIMs) and our increasing dependence on suppliers and equipment from countries which do not share our values.  We are seeking a Research Analyst to join our team and to play a crucial role in producing evidence-based reports on the security threat posed by CIMs.

Join us in helping shape the future of smart technology through research and analysis and with a primary focus on enhancing security, preserving privacy and upholding human rights. This part-time opportunity allows you to make a significant impact while pursuing your academic and other professional interests.


£150 per day for 1 or 2 days per week, starting immediately and initially for a two-month period.

We are looking for a Post-Doctorate or PhD student with a strong scientific background. Knowledge and understanding of Cellular IoT modules and related technologies are essential.

Your main task will be to support the Coalition in producing evidence-based reports on the security risks associated with CIMs, particularly those that could pose a threat to our security, prosperity, privacy, and human rights. CIM technology allows for remote data access and ingress, making it crucial to assess the potential risks comprehensively. This may include studying strategies employed by the major CIM-producing companies, assessing market competition, and investigating supply chain issues.

  • A Post-Doctorate or PhD student with expertise in scientific and technological fields.
  • Strong understanding of Cellular IoT modules and related technologies.
  • Analytical and research skills, both written and verbal.
  • Proficiency in data analysis tools and software.
