Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher in the Information
Security Group at the UCL Department of
Computer Science, to be supervised by Dr Sarah Meiklejohn (PI) and
Profs. Tomaso Aste and George Danezis (co-investigators). The position is
in support of an EPSRC project on the Digital Economy, and in particular will
be examining the applications of distributed ledgers and the challenges in
designing and deploying these technologies.
A successful candidate will explore research topics such as developing
consensus protocols that allow for scalable and efficient distributed ledgers,
resisting de-facto centralisation, and coming up with ledgers for a diverse
set of applications that nevertheless achieve some notion of interoperability.
We expect candidates to have a PhD in Computer Science or a related field, and
a strong track record in systems and network security, distributed systems,
or similar topics.
To apply for the position, please do so here
. The position is available
starting immediately (but the start date is negotiable) and will last for two
years, with the possibility to extend by another 6-12 months.
