17:51 [Job][New] PostDoc Position in Lightweight Cryptography for the Internet of Things, University of Luxembourg


The Laboratory of Algorithmics, Cryptology and Security (LACS) of the University of Luxembourg is looking for a post-doctoral researcher in the area of lightweight cryptography. The successful candidate will contribute to a research project entitled \\\"Applied Cryptography for the Internet of Things (ACRYPT)\\\", which is funded by the Fonds National de la Recherche (FNR). Besides conducting high-quality research, the tasks associated with this position include the co-supervision of a Ph.D. student and the dissemination of research results. The ACRYPT project is led by Prof. Alex Biryukov and expected to start in summer 2013.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree (or be in the final stages of a Ph.D. program) in cryptography or a closely related discipline. Applications from researchers with experience in embedded systems security, network security, privacy/anonymity, or mobile/wireless security will also be considered. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong publication record including papers in top-tier crypto/security conference proceedings or journals. Candidates with an interest to conduct leading-edge research in one of the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply:

  • Design and analysis of symmetric cryptographic primitives
  • Side-channel attacks (e.g. DPA) on symmetric cryptographic primitives and countermeasures

The position is available from July 2013 on basis of a fixed-term contract for a duration of three years, which includes a probation period of six months. LACS offers excellent working conditions in an attractive research environment and a highly competitive salary. Interested candidates are invited to submit their application by email to lacs.acrypt(at) The application material should contain a cover letter explaining the candidate\\\'s motivation and research interests, a detailed CV (including photo), a list of publications, copies of diploma certificates, and names and
