A post doc position in cryptography is available at Dept. of Computer Science, Aarhus University

A post doc position in cryptography, under the supervision of Associate Professor Kasper Green Larsen, is available at Aarhus University, Denmark. The focus of the research project is on developing and applying techniques for proving lower bounds in cryptography.

Candidates with expertise in cryptography are preferred. It is not expected that the applicant has significant experience in proving lower bounds, but the candidate should have a good overview of the field of cryptography, and should be able to independently identify problems where we can collaborate on proving lower bounds.

The daily work will be carried out in close collaboration between the Algorithms (and Complexity) group and the Cryptography group at Aarhus University. The supervisor Kasper Green Larsen represent the Algorithms group. The cryptography group consists of faculty members Professor Ivan Damgaard, Professor Jesper Buus Nielsen, Associate Professor Claudio Orlandi and Assistant Professor Peter Scholl. Jesper Buus Nielsen will also take an active part in the project, and in general, there will be rich opportunity for collaboration across the two research groups (which are physically located next to each other).

The position is available with a start of August 1st, 2020 (a later start date may be negotiated in light of COVID-19). The position is initially for two years, but may be extended by mutual consent.

The application deadline for the position is July 1st, 2020. Applicants should apply online via our recruitment system by sending a letter of interest and a CV, as well as indicate at least two names of references for recommendations.

Questions regarding the position should be directed to Associate Professor Kasper Green Larsen (

The place of work will be Dept. of Computer Science, Aarhus University, Aabogade 34, DK8200 Aarhus, Denmark.

Application procedure
Shortlisting is used. This means that after the deadline for applications – and with the assistance from the assessment committee chairman, and the appointment committee if necessary, – the head of department selects the candidates to be evaluated. All applicants will be notified whether or not their applications have been sent to an expert assessment committee for evaluation. The selected applicants will be informed about the composition of the committee, and each applicant is given the opportunity to comment on the part of the assessment that concerns him/her self. Once the recruitment process is completed a final letter of rejection is sent to the deselected applicants, including the main considerations emphasized during the selection process.
