Post-doc position in cryptography for PRISMACLOUD at Newcastle University

We are offering a post-doctoral Research Assistant/Associate position in applied cryptography. The position includes the investigation of new cryptographic primitives and protocols to certify cloud systems in a confidentiality-preserving way.
We ask questions like: How can we digitally sign and prove properties of complex data structures, without disclosing further information about them? How can we certify entire topologies of computer systems, while maintaining the confidentiality of the system's blueprint?

The position is part of the EU Horizon2020 Project PRISMACLOUD, allowing for collaboration with a range of European partners. It is fixed term for 2 years and is full time.
For informal enquiries please contact the Project Leader, Dr Thomas Gross –
As part of your application, please provide a CV and covering letter which details your prior experience in cryptography, especially in relation to anonymous credential systems or authenticated data structures.
