We are seeking a researcher who would
- Conduct research in any area of mathematical cryptology
- Supervise minor and major theses
- Organize student seminars
This is a non-tenure track position. It can become tenure after successful habilitation. The starting day is negotiable, but must be between January 1 and July 31, 2014.
Environment and mission
The school of mathematics has carried a program called Mathematical methods of information security for more than 10 years. The program is organized both at a bachelor level (3 years) and a master degree level (additional two years). Each of these levels is completed by both final exams and a minor thesis. Besides specifically cryptographic subjects the curriculum emphasizes mathematics that is relevant for cryptography (computer algebra, number theory, elliptic curves, complexity, probability).
The program produces 7-15 students a year, and their position at the job market seems to be very favorable. Our aim is to strengthen the research associated with this program. The criteria are the quality of the research program and the ability to involve students in research. Communication language is English (or Czech or Slovak).
