Research Associate (Postdoc) in Information Assurance (M/F)

The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University.

The Applied Security and Information Assurance (APSIA) is seeking to recruit a highly motivated post-doc with a strong research profile to complement and strengthen the group’s existing expertise. Applications from candidates with expertise in the core areas of the group are welcome, but consideration will also be given to candidates with expertise that would extend our expertise, for example: post-quantum security, FinTech and Distributed Ledger Technologies.

The APSIA team, led by Prof. Peter Y. A. Ryan, is part of the SnT and is a dynamic and growing research group, some 20 strong, performing cutting edge research in information assurance, cryptography, and privacy.  The group specializes in the mathematical modelling of security mechanisms and systems, especially crypto protocols (classical and quantum), and socio-technical systems.  The group is particularly strong in verifiable voting systems.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) carries out interdisciplinary research in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services, often in collaboration with industrial, governmental or international partners. SnT is active in several international research projects funded by the EU H2020 and the European Space Agency.
