Description

The Cryptography and Privacy Engineering Group (ENCRYPTO) at the Department of Computer Science of Technische Universität Darmstadt offers a position as

Doctoral Researcher (Research Assistant/PhD Student) in Private Machine

Learning for Mobile Applications

for doing cutting-edge research in applied cryptography/secure multi-party computation with interdisciplinary collaborations. The full position is available from October 1, 2021 on and for the duration of up to 3 years with the possibility of extension.

You will be working within the research training group/doctoral college Privacy & Trust for Mobile Users funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), see https: // encrypto.de/RTG for details. In our sub-project, we build cryptography-based private machine learning services for mobile applications and investigate their legal applicability (data protection) and economic feasibility in interdisciplinary collaborations.

As a doctoral researcher at ENCRYPTO, you will conduct research, build prototype implementations, and publish and present the results at top conferences and journals. You will also be involved in our teaching activities and supervise thesis students as well as student assistants.

The mission of the ENCRYPTO group is to demonstrate that privacy can be efficiently protected in real-world applications. For this, we bring theory into practice by using methods from applied cryptography and algorithm engineering to develop protocols, tools, and software prototypes to efficiently protect sensitive data in various application scenarios, see https: // encrypto.de/topics for details.

We provide an open and international working environment for excellent research in a sociable team. TU Darmstadt is ranked as a top research university for IT security and cryptography in Europe and computer science in Germany. The position is based in the “City of Science” Darmstadt, which is very international and livable, and well-connected in the Rhine-Main area around Frankfurt. Knowledge of the German language is beneficial but not required, and TU Darmstadt offers a Welcome Center and corresponding language courses.

Your Profile

  • Completed Master's degree (or equivalent) at a top university with excellent grades in IT security, computer science, or a similar field
  • Extensive knowledge in applied cryptography/IT security and very good software development skills are required
  • Additional knowledge in cryptographic protocols/secure multi-party computation is a plus
  • Experience with/motivation for working with other disciplines, e.g., with law or economics, is expected
  • We require that you are self-motivated, reliable, creative, and can work independently. We expect that you want to do excellent research on challenging scientific problems with practical relevance. As the working language at ENCRYPTO is English, you must be able to discuss, write, and present scientific results in English. Knowledge of the German language is beneficial but not required for this position.

    Opportunity for further qualification (doctoral dissertation) is given. The fulfillment of the duties likewise enables the scientific qualifications of the candidate.

    The Technische Universität Darmstadt intends to increase the number of female employees and encourages female candidates to apply. In case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of at least 50 or equal will be given preference. Wages and salaries are according to the collective agreements on salary scales, which apply to the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TV-TU Darmstadt). Part-time employment is generally possible.
