Ph.D. Position (Fully Funded)
CEA-LIST France & University of Paris-Saclay, France
The Fully Homomorphic Encryption research group at CEA-LIST, a French public government funded research organisation, is one of the largest research groups that dedicatedly works on homomorphic encryption. Potential use cases include Privacy preserving Machine learning and Deep learning, to name a few. However, different schemes are suited for different use-cases, and thus there is a greater need of efficient switching between schemes.

Thus we are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate with a string background in applied cryptography including FHE/MPC.

The candidate must meet the following requirements

  • Education: Hold an M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) with excellent grades in Information security or Computer science.
  • Experience and Knowledge: Strong background in (applied) cryptography with a particular focus on cryptographic protocols/FHE/MPC. Good software development/programming skills.
  • Personality and Working Practice: Self-motivated and enthusiastic, independent, reliable, creative, and able to work in an international team with diverse background.
  • Language Fluent English, knowledge of French not required The successful candidate will:
  • become a part of the team of 10 full time researchers (one of largest teams in the world dedicated to FHE) and advance research on FHE.
  • develop new protocols and techniques in FHE,
  • publish and present your results in top-tier journals and conferences.

    The position is based at the CEA-LIST Nano-Innov campus in Palaiseau, France (30 mins from central Paris), fully funded for three years, no teaching duties, annual leaves, and the usual benefits.
