The research conducted by the University of Auckland’s team will focus on applied cryptography for retrieval and processing of encrypted data in outsourced and untrusted environments. This involves a substantial program of research to develop, implement and apply to industrial case studies.
Applicants are required to have completed (or be close to completing) a Master degree (or equivalent) with outstanding grades in Computer Science, Mathematics, or closely related areas. Additional knowledge in related disciplines such as, e.g., complexity theory or IT security is welcome.
The candidate should be able not only to design but also implement working prototypes of the crypto scheme developed during the research period.
The STRATUS project will provide a stipend of 25,000 NZD p.a. and cover the costs of the tuition fee for 3 years.
