Researcher positions (postdoc) within the ERC Consolidator grant “Certified Quantum Security”

(Phd positions here.)

As part of the ERC Consolidator Grant "Certified Quantum Security", we are looking for postdocs to work on quantum cryptography and/or post-quantum cryptography.

All areas of (post-)quantum cryptography are welcome, we particularly welcome candidates that will interact with our efforts in formal verification of quantum crypto.
