Lattice-based zero-knowledge proofsRef. 2021_022
The IBM cryptography research group in Zurich is looking for a Ph.D. student and/or a post-doctoral scholar to work in the area of lattice-based zero-knowledge proofs. The ideal candidate will have:
This position is funded by a European ERC project, and all its output will be open source and patent-free. So a positive attitude towards contributing to the open source community is also a requirement.
The IBM research lab is located in Ruschlikon, a lakeside town that is reachable in 10 minutes by direct public transport from central Zurich. English is the working language at the lab, and it is also widely understood and spoken in Zurich and its surrounding regions.
The group offers very good working conditions, with the majority of our time being spent purely on research activities. It is also currently one of the leading research groups in quantum-safe cryptography, with some of its members (Luca de Feo, Vadim Lyubashevsky , and Gregor Seiler) significantly contributing to the design and implementation of four finalists in the ongoing NIST post-quantum standardization effort.
IBM is committed to diversity at the workplace. With us you will find an open, multicultural environment. Excellent, flexible working arrangements enable all genders to strike the desired balance between their professional development and their personal lives.
How to apply
To apply, please include a C.V., a brief (at most one page) motivation letter, and the names and email addresses of two references. If you have contributed to open source projects, please include a link to the repository and a brief explanation of your role.
The starting date is flexible, but the sooner the better.
