The Engineering Cryptographic Protocols (ENCRYPTO) Group at TU Darmstadt is looking for a research assistant (doctoral researcher / PhD student) in “Techniques for Protecting Privacy in Applications".

The ENCRYPTO group is member of the Center for Research in Security and Privacy (CRISP) and the profile area Cybersecurity at TU Darmstadt (CYSEC). We develop methods and tools for protecting privacy in applications. See https://encrypto.de for details.

The PhD student will do cutting-edge research on techniques for protecting privacy in applications such as cryptographic protocols that scale to real-world problem sizes, including secure multi-party computation and private information retrieval.

The candidate is expected to have a completed Master (or equivalent) degree with excellent grades in IT security, computer science, electrical engineering, mathematics, or a closely related field. Solid knowledge in IT security, applied cryptography, efficient algorithms, circuit design, and excellent programming skills are required. Additional knowledge in cryptographic protocols, parallel computing, compiler construction, programming languages, and software engineering is a plus.

Review of applications starts immediately until the position is filled.
