PhD Position in Information Assurance (M/F)

The University of Luxembourg seeks to hire outstanding researchers at its Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT). SnT is carrying out interdisciplinary research in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) systems and services, often in collaboration with industrial, governmental or international partners. SnT is active in several international research projects funded by the Horizon2020 programme and the European Space Agency. For further information you may check: www.securityandtrust.lu .

PhD Position at SnT, University of Luxembourg, in Information Assurance (M/F)

  • Ref: R-AGR-3112 INTER/FNRS/15/11106658/SeVoTe
  • Fixed Term Contract up to 3 years in total, pending satisfaction of progress milestones (CDD),
  • On full time basis (40hrs/week).
  •  Number of positions: 1

 Position Description:

The Team

The researchers will be working under the supervision of Prof P Y A Ryan, head of the APSIA (Applied Security and Information Assurance) research group, http://wwwde.uni.lu/snt/research/apsia.
APSIA specializes in the mathematical foundations of information assurance: the mathematical modelling and analysis of information flows, the design and analysis of cryptographic primitives and protocols (both classical and quantum), secure verifiable voting systems, and anonymous marking systems and game-theoretic analysis of non-interference and coercion-resistance. The group has expertise in both the symbolic (formal methods) and the computational (“provable security”) styles of analysis and is investigating the links and synergies between them. The group has also established itself as a leading centre for the socio-technical aspects of security.

Your Role

The research will be conducted within the SeVoTe (Secure Voting Technologies) project, in collaboration with Prof Oliver Pereira at the Universite Catholique Louvain la Neuve, Belgium. The project focusses on the design and analysis of End-to-end verifiable voting schemes, in particular designing schemes that are more robust and resilient than existing schemes. In particular, this means ensuring a high degree of dispute resolution and accountability to ensure that errors detected can be attributed and corrected, while maintaining a high degree of coercion resistance.
