OFFER DESCRIPTION

SnT is a leading international research and innovation centre in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services.

We play an instrumental role in Luxembourg by fueling innovation through research partnerships with industry, boosting R&D investments leading to economic growth, and attracting highly qualified talent.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) at the University of Luxembourg and more specifically the

We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place!

Your Role...

In 2018, the NIST announced an initiative to standardize lightweight authenticated encryption schemes and hash functions in an open process with public evaluation.

The mission of the APLICA project is to contribute to the evaluation of the third-round candidates and the eventually standardized algorithms by analyzing their theoretical and practical security properties.

More concretely, APLICA will contribute to the development of new cryptanalytic techniques that can be applied to lightweight authenticated encryption algorithms and hash functions, and to the design and implementation of new countermeasures against side-channel attacks, in particular differential power analysis, that are suitable for resource-constrained IoT devices.

Your Profile...

Candidates must hold a degree (or obtain a degree before September 2020) in symmetric cryptography or a closely related field.

Preference will be given to candidates with a strong publication record that includes at least one paper at an IACR-sponsored conference / workshop or one of the top-4 security conferences.

Experience in software development for embedded systems and / or side-channel attacks is a plus. Candidates with an interest to conduct research in one of the following areas are particularly encouraged to apply :

  • Cryptanalysis of authenticated encryption algorithms or hash functions
  • Leakage resilience or leakage reduction by design modes of operation)
  • Side-channel analysis and countermeasures
  • Here’s what awaits you at SnT...

  • Exciting infrastructures and unique labs. At SnT’s two campuses, our researchers can take a walk on the moon at the LunaLab, build a nanosatellite, or help make autonomous vehicles even better
  • The right place for IMPACT. SnT researchers engage in demand-driven projects. Through our Partnership Programme, we work on projects with more than 45 industry partners
  • Be part of a multicultural family . At SnT we have more than 60 nationalities. Throughout the year, we organise team-building events, networking activities and more
