Research Engineer for Security and Privacy
Robert Bosch GmbH, Renningen, Germany
In a few years from now, a myriad of sensors and services will be deeply embedded into our environment creating an adaptive and smart fabric of our lives and businesses. They will create a data footprint of TBs each year, a disruptive development called the Big Bang Data. This data will contribute to our ever-growing personal digital footprint. However, this footprint will not be under our control but will be owned and used by multi-national companies to drive their businesses in a new era called the Data Economy. This development erodes the right for privacy and will result in an increasing mismatch between people's desire for being in control over their data in sensitive areas and a reality where this data is scattered, unmanageable, and not under the user's control anymore. At some point in time, this will impact people's willingness to disclose their data.

To tackle these challenges Bosch Research develops solutions to store and process data securely. Especially, privacy-preserving computation techniques are relevant to provide protection of sensitive data and support secure computation on data. This includes homomorphic encryption and secure multi-party computation, but these methods are costly. Hence, these methods have to be improved and new methods need to be developed which protect data confidentiality and support efficient computation.

Thus, we are looking for a highly motivated and innovative team player who is eager to learn new things and is passionate about applied security/privacy research

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in cryptography, IT security, or a related field. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong publication record. The review of applications starts immediately until the position is filled.
