ECRYPT-NET is a research network of 6 universities and 2 companies developing advanced cryptographic techniques for the Internet of Things and the Cloud and creating efficient and secure implementations of those techniques on a broad range of platforms. ECRYPT-NET is funded by a prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN (Integrated Training Network) grant. The network is educating a group of 15 PhD students with a set of interdisciplinary skills in the areas of mathematics, computer science and electrical engineering. The training is provided in an international context, that includes Summer Schools, workshops, internships, and complementary skills. Participants are expected to spend at least 6 months abroad in a network partner or in one of the 7 associated companies. We are looking for one highly motivated candidate with a strong academic track record, ideally with some background on cryptology and with proven research abilities.

We offer an exciting working environment in an international network with top scientists that is geared towards cutting-edge research. The financial conditions are very attractive. The project offers an opportunity to travel and interact with other PhD students and scientists all over Europe. Candidates may have resided in the host country for at most 1 year in the 3 years preceding the application. They can have at most 2 years of research experience at the doctoral level.

Two of the ECRYPT-NET PhD students will be based at the Coding Theory and Cryptology (CC) and the Cryptographic Implementations (CI) groups of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (the Netherlands). At this moment we are looking for one PhD student who will perform research on lattice-based cryptography. Lattice-based cryptosystems are a hot area of research but their concrete security is not well understood. This research will explore attack algorithms such as enumeration, sieving, and quantum walks with the goal of providing security advice to designers.

The CC and CI groups together currently have 2 full professors, 1 associate professor, 2 assistant professors, 2 postdocs, and 9 PhD students working on all aspects of cryptography, with special focus on algorithms for cryptography and cryptanalysis and secure and efficient implementations. The groups are embedded into the Eindhoven Institute for the Protection of Systems and Information (Ei/PSI). For more information on these groups see https://www.win.tue.nl/cc/ and https://eindhoven.cr.yp.to/ .
