Postdoctoral researcher in Quantum CryptographyDeadline: Sunday 15 September 2019
Are you a high potential young researcher who recently obtained a PhD degree in Quantum Information Science? And are you ready to join QuSoft, a world-leading research center on quantum software in Amsterdam? This postdoc position is part of the VIDI project 'Cryptography in the Quantum Age'. The successful applicant will join the group of Christian Schaffner. The aim of the project is to develop new quantum-cryptographic protocols (dealing with quantum data and computational assumptions) and explore their limitations. Another aspect is to investigate the security of classical cryptographic schemes against quantum adversaries (post-quantum cryptography).For more information, see here or at https://www.uva.nl/shared-content/uva/en/vacancies/2019/08/19-516-postdoctoral-researcher-in-quantum-cryptography.html or contact Christian Schaffner at c.schaffner at uva.nl.
Jaap Kamps receives a Facebook Research Award and an NWO Takeoff grantFor more information, contact Jaap Kamps at J.Kamps at uva.nl.
Assistant professor (tenure track) or Associate professor in Artificial IntelligenceDeadline: Sunday 1 September 2019
Are you a passionate teacher and excellent researcher doing fundamental research on Artificial Intelligence? Do you have the ability to bridge symbolic and sub-symbolic methods used within AI? Does your area of specialisation in AI fit with ILLC’s research on formal methods in the study of information, and also complement its existing expertise? We have a preference for candidates whose research is not well-represented by current ILLC staff.For more information, see here or at https://www.uva.nl/shared-content/uva/en/vacancies/2019/07/19-414-assistant-professor-tenure-track-or-associate-professor-in-artificial-intelligence.html or contact Prof. Sonja Smets, Director of the ILLC at s.j.l.smets at uva.nl.
