PostDoc Position (Panoramix Project)

The cryptography group at the Institute of Computer Science of the University of Tartu seeks a postdoctoral researcher. The position will be supporting an EU H2020 project on mix-nets (PANORAMIX) for applications like electronic voting, secure messaging, and statistics gathering. The postdoctoral researcher should have a strong track record in cryptography, and in particular in the design of efficient zero-knowledge proofs and/or e-voting and mix-nets, although all strong candidates will be given a consideration.

The successful candidate will help to design and evaluate cryptographically secure mix-nets and perform other research duties to help with the project, coordinate and advise partners on implementing research prototypes (the candidate may or may not participate in implementing) and ensure the smooth administration of the project including the timely delivery of research output. We expect the candidate to be able to develop and devote significant time to their own research agenda around the theme of the project.

The EU H2020 project PANORAMIX requires travel to and collaboration with colleagues throughout the European Union. Full travel and equipment budget is available to support the activities of the project.

For any inquiries or to apply for the positions, submit a full research curriculum vitae (cv), names of two references, and a research statement to Prof Helger Lipmaa clearly indicating the position sought.

The call for expressions of interest will remain open until a suitable candidate is appointed. However, the project will finish on September 1, 2018, so early applications are encouraged. In the case of interest, the candidates may later seek further employment but this is not necessarily guaranteed.
