T-Labs head office is housed on the campus of the TU Berlin with several research institutes working in various areas of information and communication technology. As a joint venture between a company at the cutting edge of information technology and a leading German university, Telekom Innovation Laboratories offers an unprecedented combination of academic freedom, practical focus, and the resources of a major corporation. The networking and security groups have several openings for highly qualified
Senior Research Scientists
in the broad areas of
• Networking (network measurement and analysis, network architecture, wireless networking, cloud networks, software defined networks, security)
• Security, Trust, and Privacy (fixed, wireless, and mobile communications, system security)
• Systems (secure, efficient virtualization for networks and/or embedded and/or server systems)
• Security on a nanometer-scale (side-channel attacks and resistance, circumventing and designing tamperproof devices)
Successful applicants will have recently completed a doctoral degree, e.g., in computer science, electrical engineering, or other disciplines related to the areas m
Applications are invited for a research position in the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London, to work on cryptographic research for the International Technical Alliance (ITA) project. The ITA is a large, open collaborative project that is jointly funded by the UK Ministry of Defence and the US Department of Defense. The ITA is tasked with producing breakthroughs in fundamental research to expand the technological capabilities of the US Army and the UK Armed Forces. The project involves 16 universities and 7 industrial partners. The particular research agenda for the post involves collaboration between four universities (located in the UK and the US).
The Information Security Group (ISG) at Royal Holloway, University of London, is one of the largest and oldest academic security research groups in Europe. Its interdisciplinary approach includes research on cryptographic algorithms, network security, computer security, security architectures and security management. The ISG is a partner in the ITA project with funding to work on the development of cryptographic security solutions.
The successful applicant will have (or near completion) a PhD in relevant subject. They will work with Dr. Carlos Cid and other members of the ISG to develop efficient and provably-secure cryptographic solutions for processing data in ad-hoc networks. This will involve fundamental research on the design and use of homomorphic encryption, homomorphic signatures, and secure outsourcing. An appreciation of the role that these cryptographic schemes may take in practical systems would be considered an advantage. The ideal candidate should be able to start as soon as possible until end February 2013 but the post may be extended after this time.
The positions are part of the recently established IT-security center "CISPA - Center for IT-Security, Privacy, and Accountability". CISPA was established as part of the German initiative to create three distinguished centers of outstanding research in IT-security. CISPA covers the whole range of research problems in IT-security, privacy, and accountability, from fundamental research questions to the development of new technologies and prototypic systems for practical application.
Applications are invited for positions in all areas related to IT-security, privacy, and accountability. These areas include, but are not limited to:
A doctoral degree in computer science or related areas and an outstanding research record are required. The working and teaching language is English. Candidates should submit their application curriculum vitae, photograph, list of public
