Post-Doc in Lattice-Based Cryptography
Universitat Polit├Ęcnica de Catalunya; Barcelona, Spain
The candidate will do both theoretical and practical research in the framework of the European project PROMETHEUS:

http://www.h2020prometheus.eu/

Specifically, to design/analyze/implement better lattice-based cryptographic protocols that may be needed in electronic voting applications; this includes encryption (with threshold decryption), (group, blind) signatures and zero-knowledge proofs of knowledge.

The candidate (with a phD. completed or close to be completed) should therefore have experience in the area of lattice-based cryptography.

The expected salary will be around 43.000 euros per year, before taxes are applied (which may mean around 30.000 euros per year, at the end; the salary includes health insurance). The work place will be in UPC Campus Nord (Barcelona). The contract would start at some point in 2020, and could last 1-2 years.
