We are looking for an excellent, motivated, self-driven post-doctoral researcher to work in the area of cryptography with a focus on privacy-preserving biometrics. More precisely, the researcher will be employed in the European FP7 project BEAT (Biometric Evaluation and Testing). The researcher is expected to investigate and analyse the security and privacy of existing privacy-preserving biometric authentication systems against different types of attacks and propose new ones robust to the identified weaknesses.
Some info about the BEAT research project can be found here: http://www.beat-eu.org
More info about the research of the group can be found here: http://lasecwww.epfl.ch/~katerina/Publications.html
The employment is limited to 1 year and may be extended to 1 more year.
The applicant should have Ph.D. degree preferably in information security, computer science, cryptography or equivalent by the start of the appointment. Experience in security communication protocols, provable security, homomorphic encryption, zero-knowledge proofs, privacy-preservation and biometric authentication is highly valued.
