Are you inspired to contribute to the area of Cryptology and Security and are you passionate about research as well as teaching? At Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), our Coding Theory and Cryptology (CC) group of the Discrete Mathematics (DM) cluster of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science (M&CS) are looking for an (tenure-track) assistant professor in Cryptology.
The position will be part of the Coding Theory and Cryptology (CC) group, within the Discrete Mathematics (DM) cluster. The other group in DM is Discrete Algebra and Geometry.
The CC group consists of one full professor (Lange), two associate professors (Schoenmakers and de Weger), and three assistant professors (Ashur, Hülsing and Ravagnani). CC provides undergraduate and graduate courses in cryptology, coding theory, algebra and number theory,
as well as service teaching.
CC and the Security (SEC) group of Etalle form the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information (Ei/ Ψ) which covers the whole technical spectrum of information security. Ei/ Ψ organizes the master's track Information Security Technology within the Computer Science program at TU/e.
The ideal candidate has research experience complementing the existing strengths in CC and SEC but candidates from all areas of cryptology including neighboring fields such as software security, side-channel attacks, reverse engineering, etc. are encouraged to apply.
The assistant professor is expected to
The Coding Theory and Cryptology group is internationally visible in design and analysis of cryptographic primitives for public-key and symmetric-key cryptography as well as in applied multi-party computation. A particular strength is post-quantum cryptography where group members are involved in 4 of the 15 round-3 candidates in the NIST competition. The group has also made headlines analyzing deployed systems and finding (cryptographic) weaknesses. On the constructive side, the group has developed algorithms that are now standardized by IETF, ISO, and NIST and find broad deployment. The candidate is expected to contribute to the research themes within the CC group and Ei/ Ψ and to do outreach to other departments and beyond.
Eindhoven University of Technology is a top-ranking Dutch university that combines scientific curiosity with a hands-on attitude. Our spirit of collaboration translates into an open culture and a number 1 position in collaborating with advanced industries. Fundamental knowledge enables us to design solutions for the highly complex problems of today and tomorrow.
