Employment type: Limited
Working hours: Full-Time
Joblocation: Renningen

With Carbyne Stack, Bosch is developing an open source cloud platform for computing on encrypted data using Secure Multiparty Computation (MPC). Potential use cases include Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning and Privacy-Preserving Data Analytics. For such large computations on big data, active secure MPC becomes quite expensive. Bosch Research is therefore trying to reduce the computational and communication costs of MPC by optimizing the underlying cryptographic primitives and protocols.

Thus, we are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate with a strong background and/or interest in applied cryptography. The successful candidate will:

  • become a part of our interdisciplinary team and driveresearch on MPC
  • develop novel approaches to improve the practical efficiency of actively secure MPC protocols
  • design efficient MPC protocols for diverse use-cases
  • integrate the results into our Cabyne Stack open source MPC platform
  • publish and present the results in top-tier journals and at conferences

  • Education: Master Degree (or equivalent) with excellent grades in IT Security, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field
  • Experience and Knowledge: strong background in (applied) cryptography with a particular focus on cryptographic protocols/MPC, including security models and basic security proof techniques; good software development/programming skills and the motivation to integrate scientific results into Carbyne Stack
  • Personality and Working Practice: self-motivated and enthusiastic, independent, reliable, creative, and able to work in an international team with diverse background
  • Languages: fluent English language skills

  • Work-life balance: Flexible working in terms of time, place and working model.
  • Health & Sport: Wide range of health and sports activities.
  • Childcare: Intermediary service for childcare services.
  • Employee discounts: Discounts for employees.
  • Room for creativity: Space for creative work.
  • In-house social counseling and care services: Social counselling and intermediary service for care services.
