Ph.D. student, Université Jean Monnet - Saint-Etienne - France
A PhD position will be available at the Hubert Curien Laboratory, Saint-Etienne, in Secure hardware implementations of code-based cryptosystems. With a 3 years duration, the PhD is expected to start by the end of summer 2012. The PhD student will conduct his research in the two following fields:
This research will be funded by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MENRT). The PhD student must have a strong background in cryptography and at least a basic knowledge in digital hardware design. The research will be conducted in the Hubert Curien Laboratory in a close collaboration with the CASED (Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt) in Germany.
- code-based public-key and private-key cryptography,
- secure implementations of cryptosystems with respect to side-channel analysis and countermeasures.
Applications are welcome from university graduates in mathematics, computer science, electronics, micro-electronics or information security. Successful applicants must show outstanding grades and have finished their master thesis on a topic related to the mentioned research areas. Applications can be sent by email to Pierre-Louis Cayrel (pierre.louis.cayrel (at) univ-st-etienne.fr) and Viktor Fischer (fischer (at) univ-st-etienne.fr) in one PDF document, containing a CV, a copy of academic transcripts, a short statement of motivation (incl. description of prior activities in the relevant areas), and one reference letter or a letter of recommendation.
