quantum cryptography

We are seeking a research associate to work on research projects in practical aspects of quantum cryptography and IT security. This position is part of the Swiss National Science Foundation Practice-to-Science grant “Quantum cryptography in practice”.
Candidates should have good software engineering skills and a strong background in IT security and/or cryptography; knowledge in quantum information advantageous.

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to work on practical aspects of quantum cryptography. The position is part of the Swiss National Science Foundation Practice-to-Science grant “Quantum cryptography in practice”. This project investigates practical quantum key distribution and quantum random number generation protocols, analyzes their security and develops secure and efficient alternative protocols. It devises methods to assess and quantify the quality and “quantumness” of quantum random number generators.

AQIS ’20 will focus on quantum information processing, communication and cryptography, an interdisciplinary field bridging quantum physics, computer science, mathematics, and information technologies. AQIS’20 will be a natural successor of EQIS’01-EQIS’05 and AQIS’06-AQIS’19. AQIS’20 will consist of invited talks, and selected oral and poster presentations.

Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position at QICI Quantum Information and Computation Initiative of the Department of Computer Science, The University of Hong Kong. The start date is flexible.

We seek up to two highly motivated, skilled and independent researchers to join our research group at CQT and NUS ECE.

The research/postdoctoral fellows are expected to focus on, but not limited to, (1) the development of security proof techniques for realistic quantum cryptography schemes and (2) the development of verification toolboxes for quantum coherence and quantum correlations (nonlocality, entanglement, etc.) in quantum networks. We highly encourage candidates who are interested in both discrete and continuous variables systems to apply.
