Postdoctoral Fellow in Cryptography Focusing on Post-Quantum Authentication Protocols

We have a vacancy for a postdoctoral fellowship at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at NTNU in Trondheim, Norway. The postdoctoral fellowship position is a temporary position where the main goal is to qualify for work in senior academic positions.

The position is funded by the Norwegian Research Council in the project: “OffPAD – Optimizing balance between high security and usability. An innovative approach to endpoint security”. The NIST Post Quantum Cryptography Standardization is expected to end in 2024, and post-quantum cryptography will be required to secure all sensitive information in the years to come shortly after, e.g., in protocols such as TLS, SSH, FIDO and other systems.

Additionally, NIST have announced a new call for quantum secure digital signature algorithms. The goal of this project is to conduct research on post-quantum authentication protocols and improve upon the frameworks used today when it comes to long-term security.
