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 of theoretical and practical aspects relating to cryptography, applied cryptography, and cryptographic engineering. The role ( 2 positions ) represent an exciting opportunity to join the group as part of the SCARV project, which in turn forms part of the NCSC-supported Research Institute in Hardware Security & Embedded Systems (RISE). You will work in collaboration with industrial (i.e., Cerberus Security Labs. and Thales) and academic partners, to deliver more efficient, more secure platforms based on RISC-V.
What will you be doing:
Fundamentally, you will identify, execute, and disseminate results from research tasks in line with the project goals. Broadly speaking these goals exist at the intersection of computer architecture and cryptographic engineering; the project web-site captures examples of previous research tasks, e.g., through the set of publications listed. In addition, you will assist development and maintenance of associated open-source hardware and software artifacts.
You should apply if
Given the project goals, a strong background and interest in at least one of the following research fields is desirable:
