The Institute for Logic, Language & Computation (ILLC) at the University of Amsterdam is looking for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of quantum cryptography.
The aim of the project is to develop new quantum-cryptographic protocols (beyond the task of key distribution) and explore their limitations. An example of an active research is position-based quantum cryptography. Another aspect is to investigate the security of classical cryptographic schemes against quantum adversaries (post-quantum cryptography).
