Work With Us

From technology to law, behavioral sciences to biometrics, public policy, business, and more, the CLTC is an important new hub for collaboration within a new definition of cybersecurity. We seek collaborators with creative ideas and robust methods for potentially game-changing research and practices.

Research partners or grantees

The CLTC is shaping the contours of a new academic field. Our work is developing new areas of research, training, and practice for a generation of people better equipped to conceptualize and bring about improved security online. We foster directed exploratory research and fund specific projects that align with the Center’s future-oriented cybersecurity framework.

If you are a student or faculty of a research university or institution and would like more information about how you can collaborate with CLTC, please contact

CLTC hosts a limited number of visiting scholars each year. For more information about our Visiting Scholar Program, please click here.

Business, non-profit, or public policy partners

The CLTC aims to be a preeminent resource for cybersecurity policy-makers and practitioners. We seek strong, highly diverse collaborations that can inform research with real-world experience and problem definitions, and take advantage of the work’s practical applications in future initiatives.

If you are interested in engaging with the CLTC as a collaborative partner or funder, contact

Requests for Proposals

CLTC regularly issues requests for research proposals that will expand and refine understandings of and means of intervening in the cybersecurity problem space, broadly defined. We seek to stimulate the entry of new perspectives from cross-disciplinary collaborations and insights, in the interest of building capacity for on-going academic research input into what is becoming one of the most important problems of modern society.

Please stay tuned to our website and newsletter for future announcements of RFPs. Please note that Principal Investigators applying must have an active Berkeley research affiliation, and must be enrolled in or have completed a graduate degree. (CLTC will consider funding undergraduate research at a later time.) For more information, please refer to our past requests for proposals from 2015, 2016, and 2017.

Become a Corporate Member

Partner with the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity (CLTC) to build the future of cybersecurity. As the University of California, Berkeley’s interdisciplinary research and collaboration hub for cybersecurity, CLTC seeks to design solutions to issues that arise wherever humans and digital systems interact, based on a long-term vision of the internet and its future. The Center is funded through a generous seed grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and housed within UC Berkeley’s School of Information.

The CLTC Corporate Membership Program provides a variety of resources—ranging from new tools and research to outstanding opportunities for recruiting and networking—to help organizations stay one step ahead. Members gain access to a community of world-class researchers working on cybersecurity challenges most relevant to the 21st century; a talent pool of Berkeley students ready to engage; and a network of other companies, institutions, and individuals interested in learning about new advancements in the field.
