Postdoc and Ph.D. student
Bar-Ilan University, Israel
A postdoctoral position and a PhD position are open in the faculty of engineering at Bar-Ilan University, hosted by Prof. Carmit Hazay and Dr. Ran Gelles. The positions involve performing theoretical research in cryptography. In particular, researching topics on secure computation over unreliable channels and over networks where the adversary controls the communication channels.

This project is in collaboration with Purdue University and participant will be offered several all expenses paid visits to Purdue University, USA.

The postdoctoral position is offered for 1 year and can be extended by an additional year contingent upon funding and satisfactory performance. The PhD position spans an entire course of a PhD degree, with an expected duration of 4 years.

Applicants should ideally have background in information-theoretic secure computation as well as general background in cryptography. Knowledge in coding theory and information theory is an advantage. Candidates are expected to be highly motivated and mathematically capable.

Applications should include (1) a CV including a list of publications, (2) a short research statement, (3) names and contact information of 2-3 potential references.
