Research Associate - SCARV: a side-channel hardened RISC-V platform

University of Bristol - Department of Computer Science

Location: Bristol
Salary: £35,333 to £39,745 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
Placed On: 29th November 2022
Closes: 13th December 2022
Job Ref: ACAD106490

The role

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[1] project, which in turn forms part of the NCSC-supported[2] 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[1] captures examples of previous research tasks, e.g., through the set of publications listed.  In addition, you will assist development and maintenance of associated[2] 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:

  1. micro-processor design and implementation,
  2. implementation (e.g., side-channel and fault) attacks on cryptography, including leakage modelling and simulation,
  3. high-assurance hardware or software implementation (e.g., formal specification of and verification with respect to security properties),
  4. theoretical and/or applied directions relevant to ongoing NIST standardisation processes for lightweight (LWC) and post-quantum (PQC) constructions.
