Ph.D. scholarship, Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED)
CASED offers PhD Scholarships in Cybersecurity (Resilient Critical Infrastructures) at the CASED lab under the authority of Technische Universität Darmstadt and Prof. Dr. Max Mühlhäuser with funding from AGT Germany.
Relevant research topics in Cybersecurity range from adversary detection to network resilience, including mitigation and healing. Regarding the application domains, a main emphasis is put on critical infrastructures with Internet backbones. This comprises Smart Cities, Smart Grids, Smart Transport,and large-scale industrial sites.
Experience in IT security, preferably with a focus on Cybersecurity, as well as profound knowledge in computer science, distributed systems and networks are mandatory. Candidates should hold a Diploma or Master degree and should have an excellent command of English and preferably some command of German.
What we offer is an international environment and contact to experienced researchers and other PhD students working on related topics in the area of IT security. Candidates obtain a 3 year scholarship and become members of the CASED graduate school, which supports them during their entire PhD research. This includes professional courses for transferable skills like trainings in giving scientific presentations or writing scientific papers.
Your application should include your Curriculum Vitae, M.Sc./Diploma certificates and grades, a letter of motivation stating your interest in the position as well as your research interests. Furthermore, you should attach at least one letter of recommendation.
Please send your complete application by email to Prof. Dr. Max Mühlhäuser (max (at) informatik.tu-darmstadt.de).
Post-Doc, Technical University Denmark, Copenhagen
Postdoc within the area of Symmetric Cryptography
Applications are invited for an 18 month (with a possible extension of 6 months) Postdoc position at the Danish-Chinese Center for Applications of Algebraic Geometry in Coding and Cryptology. The center is located at the Department of Mathematics at the Technical University of Denmark. The position is available from July 2012 or earliest thereafter.
The candidate should have a PhD degree or academic qualifications equivalent to the PhD level, and should have a strong background in symmetric cryptography. This is usually demonstrated by having publications in well established journals and/or conferences.
As it is essential for the project to establish research connections with China, applicants are expected to be willing to actively establish these connections. This ideally includes one or several visits to the East China Normal University.
Salary and terms of employment
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union.
The period of employment is 18 months.

PhD. student, Orange Labs Caen (France)
Orange Labs and the ENS (Ecole Normale Supérieure) are searching Ph.D. candidates to work on the way to securely delegate some basic cryptographic operations to a more powerful but not necessarily trusted entity.
The candidate should have a Master degree with a strong knowledge in cryptography. In particular, mathematical and algorithmic aspects of cryptography are very important for this Ph.D. thesis.
