The Opportunity

The Faculty of Information Technology (FIT) aims to lead global IT research and education. Our strong reputation and international profile attracts the best students worldwide and we offer a range of accredited courses that transform our graduates into highly skilled and sought after IT professionals, equipped to work globally.

The Department of Software Systems and Cybersecurity (SSC) is a world leader in cybersecurity research. As technology becomes more deeply integrated into our everyday lives, the smarter and more alert we need to become. Through our work we seek to understand and address the challenges created by the constant re-imagining of technology. We navigate the ever-changing public perspectives on issues such as privacy and self-disclosure, and the expectation of convenience and trust in online services.

Reporting to the Chief Investigator, this newly created Research Fellow opportunity will form part of an ARC funded research project on design of efficient cryptographic protocols. It will involve the design and evaluation of high-performance implementations of lattice-based cryptographic protocols, including digital signatures, public-key encryption, and zero-knowledge proofs, with security against side-channel attacks.

About You

As the successful candidate you will have research experience, an honours qualification and/or a doctoral qualification in the relevant discipline or closely related field. You will also have demonstrated research experience and skills in high-performance implementation techniques for lattice-based cryptographic algorithms and protocols as well as in side-channel resistant implementation of such protocols.

You will be expected to conduct high quality research both independently and within a team and participate in the production or contribution to the production of conference and seminar papers and publications from that research.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

At Monash University, we are committed to being a Child Safe organisation. Some positions at the University will require the incumbent to hold a valid Working with Children Check.
