Two GCHQ-funded PhD studentships in cryptography

Posted on 05/12/2012

The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) in Cheltenham has agreed in principle to sponsor two PhD/Doctoral Studentships to be held with the Information Security Group of Royal Holloway (University of London) in the area of cryptography. The studentships will be funded for a period of 3.5 years, starting in September 2013. The two studentships available are as follows:

A Computational Algebra Approach to Learning with Errors
Supervisors: Dr Carlos Cid and Prof. Sean Murphy

Randomness in Cryptography – Theory Meets Practice

Supervisor: Prof. Kenny Paterson

Note that the studentships are only open to UK nationals and the successful candidates will be required to spend in the region of 2 - 4 weeks per year at GCHQ headquarters in Cheltenham. To be considered for this studentship, candidates must therefore be prepared to undergo GCHQ's security clearance procedures. Interested applicants should contact the supervisors concerned (please click studentship title for contact email addresses).
