Job title - Research Associate - SIPP: secure IoT processor platform with remote attestation
Job number - ACAD104782
Division/School - School of Computer Science, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Engineering Maths
Contract type - Open Ended
Working pattern - Full time
Salary - £33,797 - £38,017
Closing date for applications - 29th November 2020
Within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol, the Cryptography research group fosters an internationally leading and inter-disciplinary programme of research; current and previous work spans the full range theoretical and practical aspects relating to cryptography, applied cryptography, and cryptographic engineering.
This post represents an exciting opportunity to join the group as part of the SIPP project: as part of the EPSRC center-to-center programme, SIPP is a collaborative effort between the 5 UK-based core project partners within the NCSC-supported Research Institute in Hardware Security & Embedded Systems (RISE) and partners in Singapore.
Within SIPP, the University of Bristol leads a work package of activity at the intersection of cryptographic and energy efficient engineering.
For example, the work package will explore how energy efficiency constraints can be satisfied by (secure) cryptographic designs and implementations, and, on the other hand, how energy efficient technologies can impact on security in a positive or negative way.
Given this remit, a strong background in micro-processor design and implementation, and/or analysis and design of energy efficient technologies, and/or implementation (e.g., side-channel) attacks on cryptography is therefore desirable.
Although you will have at least a first degree and preferably a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or closely related discipline, we view relevant industrial experience as extremely valuable and therefore equally encourage applicants of this type.
This post is offered on a full time, open ended with funding up to 31/03/2020. It is anticipated that interviews will take place shortly after the closing date, with a negotiable start date as soon after that as is feasible.
