Job Vacancies at ILLC


  • PhD candidate in Theoretical Computer Science

    The Institute for Logic, Language & Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam, and the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) are looking for a PhD candidate in the area of quantum cryptography.

    The aim of the PhD project is to develop new quantum-cryptographic protocols (beyond the task of key distribution) and explore their limitations. An example of an active research is position-based quantum cryptography. Another aspect is to investigate the security of classical cryptographic schemes against quantum adversaries (post-quantum cryptography). The successful applicant will work under the supervision of Christian Schaffner.

    Application deadline: 31 October 2014. For more information, see http://www.uva.nl/en/about-the-uva/working-at-the-uva/vacancies/item/14-295.html.
