The postdoc will be part of a research project QuantumMining, working on the following topics:
- secure multiparty computation;
- fast and practical implementations of quantum oblivious transfer;
- security analysis of quantum and classical cryptographic protocols.
We are looking for candidates with Ph.D. degrees in either physics, maths, computer science, engineering, or related areas with a strong background in one or more of the following research areas:
- quantum information
- quantum optics (theoretical and/or experimental)
The appointment would be for two and a half years. The starting date is flexible, from August 1, 2019.
Applicants should send their intent of interest by sending an e-mail with their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
