PhD student position in e-voting systems, Trier, GERMANY

The Chair for Information Security and Cryptography at University of Trier, Germany, offers

a full-time PhD position.

The PhD candidate will contribute to the research in the project "Implementation-Level Analysis of 
E-Voting Systems", which is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and is part of the DFG 
priority programme "Reliably Secure Software Systems - RS3".  The goal of this project is to 
develop general methods and techniques for the security analysis of Java systems that use 
cryptography, with e-voting systems being one of the motivating examples. The project combines 
techniques from program analysis/verification with techniques from cryptography and cryptographic 
protocol analysis.

We offer a creative international environment and the possibility to participate in internationally
visible research. The salary scale for the position is TV-L E13 (100%). The gross income depends 
on the candidate's experience level. At the lowest level it corresponds to approx. 40,000 EUR per 
year.  There are no teaching obligations. The starting date is negotiable. Subject to the final 
decision of the DFG, the position will be available from October 1st, 2012. Contracts are initially 
offered for two years, with the perspective of an extension by another two years.

The successful candidate should have a Master's degree (or should be very close to completion 
thereof) in Computer Science, Mathematics, Information Security, or a related field, with a strong 
background in Theoretical Computer Science. Knowledge in program analysis/verification, logic, or 
cryptography is an asset.  Good English skills are expected; knowledge of German is not required.

Candidates with severe disabilities will be given priority in case their qualification level is 
the same as that of other applicants.

Applications should include:
* Curriculum Vitae (including your contact address and work experience)
* Cover letter explaining your motivation
* Transcript of all courses and grades for your Bachelor and Master
* A short description of your Master's work (max 1 page)
* Contact details of (at least) one  professor that can

documents attached in pdf format.
