Postdoctoral Researcher in Network Security at ETH Zurich

The network security group lead by Adrian Perrig at ETH in Zurich is
seeking to fill a postdoctoral researcher position in the general area
of network security to work on the SCION next-generation Internet
architecture. The candidate will collaborate with a group of 10
committed researchers on the design, analysis, implementation, and
evaluation of a next-generation Internet system. The starting date is
negotiable (but the sooner the better) and the position is for 1-3
years.

More information about the SCION next-generation Internet architecture:
http://www.netsec.ethz.ch/research/projects/scion

Aim and Scope

In the SCION project we are designing and building a prototype for a
highly available and secure next-generation Internet architecture. We
are researching a multitude of issues, including: DDoS defense, trust
establishment, censorship resilience, user privacy and anonymous
communication, economic aspects, reliability, high performance and
scalable networking systems, etc. The goal of the project is to
design, build, and deploy a highly available and viable
next-generation Internet architecture.

Candidate Profile

The ideal candidate should have an PhD in CS, EE, or related
discipline, and combine a solid theoretical background with strong
systems building skills.
       
The following skills are advantageous:
- Security, applied cryptography, and networking.
- Strong publication track record in security or applied cryptography.
- Interests in systems design, analysis, simulation, implementation,
  and evaluation.
- Knowledge of economic aspects of networking.
- Familiarity with ISP operations.
- Experience with real-world deployments.
- Formal protocol analysis.
- Design and analysis of security protocols.
- Experience with low-level programming and debugging.

Application and Inquiries

Interested candidates should send their CV to Adrian Perrig
<aperrig@inf.ethz.ch>. Questions about the position may be
sent to the same address.

Location

The position is at ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Knowledge of German is
not required as Zurich is an international city. CS courses at ETH are
taught in English, and English is spoken almost exclusively throughout
the department, as well as in meetings, talks, etc. Although Zurich is
a highly desirable place to live in, the generous remuneration more
than adequately compensates for the high cost of living.
