Postdoc in lattice-based cryptography
University of Bordeaux, France
A full-time 2-year postdoctoral position is available at IMB (Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux), supported by the ANR-NSF project CHARM (Cryptographic hardness of module lattices). Potential research topics include:
  • Lattice algorithms and cryptanalysis (shortest or closest vector problems, LWE, for rings, modules or lattices)
  • Algebraic number theory and lattices (geometry of numbers, ideals in numbers fields, automorphic forms)
  • Quantum algorithms for lattices (security proofs, cryptanalysis)
The candidate should hold a PhD degree in Mathematics or Computer Science, and should have a strong record related to any of the above topics. Starting date is flexible, preferably before October 2022.
To apply, please send your CV, a motivation letter and names of at least two persons who can provide reference letters.
The CHARM project is a collaboration between four scientific intitutions in France and in the USA. Members in Bordeaux are: Bill Allombert, Karim Belabas, Aurel Page, Alice Pellet-Mary, and Benjamin Wesolowski.
