Postdoc positions in cryptography, security, and distributed protocols
Multiple postdoc positions are available in the Cryptology and Data
Security research group at the Institute of Computer Science, University
of Bern, led by Christian Cachin.
Our research addresses all aspects of security in distributed systems,
especially cryptographic protocols, consistency, consensus, and
cloud-computing security. We are particularly interested in blockchains,
decentralized protocols, distributed cryptosystems, and the technical
aspects of cryptocurrencies.
Candidates should have a strong background in computer science. They
should like conceptual, rigorous thinking for working theoretically, or be
interested in building innovative systems for working practically.
Demonstrated expertise in cryptography, distributed computing, or
blockchain technology is a plus. Applicants must hold a Ph.D., with
contributions in the relevant research topics.
Positions are available for starting in early 2023 and come with a
competitive salary. The selection process runs until suitable candidates
have been found. The University of Bern conducts excellent research and
