Currently CRISSP-AD has over half a dozen faculty and several researchers who are focusing on a variety of cutting edge research projects, and the center is seeking outstanding postdoctoral candidates to join our team to further support its research activities. The areas of expertise aimed at, but not limited to, are: cyber threat intelligence and network analytics; hardware and critical-infrastructure security; and user-centric security. Candidates must hold (or be close to completing) a Ph.D. in Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering or quantitative social sciences. PhD holders with a strong publication record and hands-on skills are encouraged to apply.
New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, a multisite, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea capitals. The network has three foundational degree-granting campuses: New York, Abu Dhabi, and Shanghai, complemented by a network of over 15 research and study-away sites across five continents. Faculty and students will circulate within the network in pursuit of common research interests and cross-cultural, interdisciplinary endeavours, both local and global.
The successful applicant will join a vibrant and growing security research team at Newcastle University and have the flexibility of working on a range of topics such as electronic voting, key exchange, NFC payment, BitCoin and so on. Our research work has been largely driven by tackling real-world security problems. Hence, an ideal candidate is one who has 1) a solid theoretical background; 2) good practical skills; 3) and a keen interest to work on real-world problems with aim for practical impact.
About us: Newcastle University is accredited as one of the eleven Academic Centres of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACEs-CSR) in the UK. In the latest 2014 Research Excellence Frame (REF) assessment, under the category of computer science, Newcastle University is ranked the first among the UK universities for its research impact.
How to apply: follow the online application link below. To help speed up the process, please also send your CV and a brief cover letter to feng.hao (at) ncl.ac.uk.
The cloud storage and cloud solutions security research teams at IBM Research - Zurich are looking for outstanding researchers to strengthen their activities covering security mechanisms for storage systems and cloud computing. Topics include cryptographic schemes addressing privacy and authenticity, software-defined storage systems, and distributed secure protocols.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD in computer science or a related field, with an excellent record of publications and other accomplishments in the field. A good understanding of cryptographic techniques and a strong background in storage systems, file systems, databases, distributed systems and operating systems is beneficial. Candidates must have a strong desire and proven ability to conduct research independently, invent new ideas, implement them in real systems, and publish the results of their work.
The highly motivated, creative individual will join a multi-disciplinary research team to design and implement advanced mechanisms for protecting cloud computing and storage systems.
IBM is committed to diversity at the workplace. With us, you will find an open, multicultural environment. Excellent, flexible working arrangements enable both women and men to strike the desired balance between their professional development and their personal lives.
Multiple positions are available with starting dates in 2015. For obtaining more information about the topic, please contact: Dr. Christian Cachin and mention \"Cloud security position\" in the subject line.
There is no specific closing date, even though the form here asks for a date.
To apply, please send your CV including contact information for two references by email to: cloudsec (at) zurich.ibm.com
IBM Research - Zurich
The position is open for one year. The starting date can be arranged as convenient, but in any case not later than 1st July 2015.
The partners involved in the SIMPATIC project are the crypto teams of the Laboratoire d\'Informatique de l\'ENS Paris, of IMB (Bordeaux), of University Paris 8, of University Rennes 1, Oberthur, INVIA, ST (Le Mans) and Orange Labs (Caen).
The successful applicant will work on the conception of cryptographic primitives suitable for SIMs and other small supports. Candidates are expected to have a high quality potential in theoretical cryptography. He/she will be expected to interact with members of the Applied Crypto Group (ACG) at Orange Labs (OL) in Caen.
However, if no suitable applicant is found, we shall consider hiring a candidate to work on one of the other themes of the project, with a priority on the study of suitable pairing-friendly curves, both theoretical and algorithmic aspects. Such candidates should have a very strong background in relevant number theory and algebraic geometry. Some experience in software implementation (for example in Pari, Magma, Sage, ...) would be useful.
Candidates must hold a PhD thesis or equivalent in mathematics or computer science, together with a strong research record. Applicants should send a detailed curriculum vitae, list of publications, and arrange for letters of recommandation to arrive not later than 1st April 201
