PhD in Cryptography
Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
We are looking for motivated, bright, and hard-working students who wish to pursue a PhD in Cryptography. The main areas of focus are zero-knowledge proofs, oblivious primitives on Trusted Execution Environments (Intel SGX, ARM TrustZone, etc.), and encrypted database query evaluation; other areas of cryptography are also possible. Ideal candidates have prior knowledge of implementing cryptographic primitives and a solid background in theoretical computer science (complexity analysis, reduction proofs, etc.). Experience in programming for TEEs is also a big plus. Interested candidates send an e-mail with your latest CV and a short paragraph on your topics of interest.
