Two Postdocs, Information Security Group, Royal Holloway, University of London
We are seeking to recruit two post-doctoral research assistants to work in the area of \"Cryptography: Bridging Theory and Practice\". The positions are available immediately and will run for three years. Salary is in the range GBP32,106 to GBP37,922 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance.
The postdocs will work with Kenny and his PhD students to find weaknesses in cryptographic specifications and implementations, to understand how these weaknesses can be addressed in practical ways, and to develop extensions of current cryptographic theory that permit more realistic modeling of cryptographic primitives as they are used in fielded systems. The positions will also involve activities designed to engage both the theory community and practitioners in the research.
Applicants should have already completed, or be close to completing, a PhD in a relevant discipline. Applicants should have an outstanding research track record in Cryptography, in either theoretical or applied aspects of the subject, and, ideally, in both aspects. Applicants should be able to demonstrate scientific creativity, research independence, and the ability to communicate their ideas effectively in written and verbal form.
The closing date for receipt of applications is 12 noon on August 14th 2011. Further details and an application form are available to download at http://www.rhul.ac.uk/jobs/home.aspx or by contacting the Recruitment Team by email: recruitment (at) rhul.ac.uk or tel: 01784 414241
Informal inquiries can be made of Kenny at kenny.paterson (at) rhul.ac.uk
Post-doc in Computer Science or related area - Claude Shannon Fellow Program, Technische Universitaet Darmstadt
The Department for Computer Science at the Technische Universitšt Darmstadt is establishing a new program for creating independent research groups in the areas of information security and privacy:
Claude Shannon Fellow Program
Fellows will receive the opportunity to do independent research and teaching, and will receive additional funding to hire 1-2 PhD students. Candidates must have a finished PhD/doctoral degree in Computer Science or a related area; an outstanding publication record; and demonstrated experience in working with the international research community. Ideally they have held at least one postdoc position at a university other than the one they obtained their PhD degree from. The program offers competitive personal compensation and access to resources. Claude Shannon Fellows will be employed by TU Darmstadt on its own pay scale TV-TU Darmstadt (the salary will be comparable to the assistant/associate professor level W1/W2 in the German system). Applicants will be selected based on their credentials, references, and participation in a scientific colloquium.
We are specifically soliciting applications to fill 6 open positions for Claude Shannon Fellows. These are part of the European Center for Security and Privacy by Design (EC-SPRIDE), pending approval by the German Ministry of Science and Education. The positions offer term employment, initially end-ing on September 30th, 2015, according to the projected first phase of EC-SPRIDE. Subject to a positive evaluation of research results and a positive evaluation of the first phase of EC-SPRIDE, employment may be extended once, for up to 4 years.
