Post Doc (DFG - Research Training Group), Horst Görtz Institute for IT-Security
The Horst Görtz Institute at Ruhr-University Bochum is one of Europe’s leading research centers in IT security. The DFG, or German Research Foundation, awarded more than €4 million to the HGI for the establishment of the interdisciplinary research training group “New Challenges for Cryptography in Ubiquitous Computing”. We are looking for candidates with outstanding master’s (or Diplom) degree in the fields of electrical engineering, computer science, mathematics or related areas.
The research training group will study problems which are fundamental for securing the Internet of Things. A central goal of the doctoral training is an interdisciplinary and structured education at the highest scientific level. Establishing networks to top internationally research groups is part of the training.
The Ruhr-University Bochum supports women‘s career development. Applications from women are thus explicitly welcome. In those areas in which women are underrepresented they will be considered preferentially according to the regulations of the „Landesgleichstellungsgesetz” if their abilities, aptitude and professional performance are equal with those of the fellow applicants unless reasons concerning the person of a fellow applicant are predominant.
In case of equal qualification, applications of severely disabled persons or persons that are regarded as being on a par with severely disabled persons according to § 2 Abs. 3 SGB IX will be considered preferentially.
