University students are invited to apply for a virtual internship with U.S. Army Cyber Command during the upcoming academic year. The internships, offered as part of the Virtual Student Federal Service (VSFS) program, give participants an opportunity to conduct study in a number of cyberspace-related areas, including publicly available literature on cyber attacks and data analysis; investigating the social science theories behind persistent engagement, deterrence, and escalation; and marketing research on the cyber job market.
Interns participate in the program for 10 hours per week through the academic year, with breaks for holidays and university exam periods. One to two hours each week are spent in virtual counseling with a senior ARCYBER mentor, both individually and in group sessions. Mentors may also assist interns with job references and writing papers on their research to help fulfill their academic requirements. Interns may receive internship credit from their schools.
The internships provide ARCYBER with valuable support in studying the potential implications of participants' research findings on the organization, personnel and policies, while giving students a positive experience and practical knowledge that helps them launch careers in the cyber workforce, as well as an introduction to federal service.
Students can view the internship job descriptions on the VSFS website at vsfs.state.gov/projects/3766.
