School of Informatics
The School of Informatics wishes to appoint four Research Associates at the Blockchain Technology Laboratory (BTL) with the objective to conduct research on blockchain technology.
The Blockchain Technology Laboratory (BTL) aims at studying blockchain technology. A blockchain protocol, initially showcased by the global digital currency Bitcoin, is typified by a publicly accessible and reliable ledger of transactions. Blockchain systems manage relations between stakeholders in the form of “smart contracts”. A number of applications are being explored by a growing number of start-ups and established companies, in health data processing, identity management, land ownership registries, and energy management just to name a few applications. Fully understanding this technology, in terms of its resilience to attacks, and scalability and performance, remains an important open research and development question that is at the core of BTL’s mission. It is a coordinated effort between academia and industry that aspires to provide advances, both foundational and applied, and ensure that the maximal potential of the technology can be realised in an expedient manner.
These positions are available immediately for 12 months with the possibility of extension.
