Computer Scientist (f/m/d)
Institute of Information Security and Dependability - Engineering Secure Systems (KASTEL-ESS)
You are a member of the KASTEL Security Research Labs and the Topic “Engineering Secure Systems” of the Helmholtz Association. Your research is dealing with cryptographic protocols for privacy-preserving computations (particularly, secure multi-party computation), e.g., applied to mobility systems. It will result in both theoretical security concepts (protocol designs, security proofs, etc.) and their practical implementation (e.g., a demonstrator) for some application domain. Additionally, you will support the organization of workshops and project meetings, the preparation of grant proposals, and the supervision of Bachelor and Master students.
You have a Master’s and PhD degree in Computer Science or a closely related field. Your PhD thesis deals with a topic in cryptography. Additionally, you are an expert in privacy-preserving cryptographic protocols with a focus on secure multi-party computation, ideally, having hands-on experiences with MPC-compilers like SCALE-MAMBA or others. Furthermore, you have a true interest in interdisciplinary research, work independently, proactively, reliably, and in a structured fashion. Finally, you are a flexible team-player with communication skills.
