Research Fellow (Multi-party Quantum Cryptography)

Research Fellow (Multi-party Quantum Cryptography)

Job Purpose:

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow who will work on quantum cryptography, specifically multi-party quantum cryptography. Sample topics include


  • Quantum homomorphic encryption, quantum private information retrieval and secure delegated quantum computation
  • Composable security for multi-party quantum cryptography
  • Quantifying tradeoffs between security and noise in multi-party quantum cryptography
  • Using quantum error correction for noise resilient quantum cryptography


The candidate should have a strong track record working on technical aspects of quantum information theory and cryptography. The candidate is expected to have a PhD in electrical engineering, computer science, physics or applied mathematics and a publication record in quantum information theory.


The candidate will work closely with Assoc. Prof. Marco Tomamichel and Dr. Yingkai Ouyang. The position is funded by the QEP (Quantum Engineering Programme) project Quantum homomorphic encryption: the Swiss army knife for the quantum internet? and thus the research conducted must be within its scope, i.e., roughly around the sample topics mentioned above. The candidate is expected to use the postdoctoral stint to develop a strong research profile by conduction research on the above-mentioned topics. They are also expected to contribute to the group, for example by co-supervising undergraduate student projects and assisting with teaching.
