The Digital Security group at the Radboud University Nijmegen invites applications for PhD and PostDoc positions in applied cryptography and embedded security.
The research envisioned is on side-channel cryptanalysis, fault attacks and countermeasures and/or lightweight cryptography (protocols, crypto primitives and implementations).
The project has sufficient funds to support career development, conference visits, summer schools, and similar scientific activities.
For PhD students:
Successful candidates must hold an M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) from the university study of Computer Science, Mathematics or Engineering. Applications from students that are expected to finish their master thesis within 1 year will also be considered. Prior background/experience in cryptography and/or computer security is an asset.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. and expertise in at least one of the following research areas:
- applied cryptography
- embedded security
- hardware design for cryptography/cryptanalysis
- side-channel analysis and countermeasures
- machine learning and data mining
We expect proven expertise in your area of research by publications at top conferences and journals, some experience with EU projects, student supervision etc.
Conditions of employment
PhD positions are for 4 years, PostDoc positions are for up to 2 years, the expected starting dates are flexible.
Candidates moving to the Netherlands from abroad may qualify for a tax incentive scheme, where 30% of your income is tax-free.
