EPFL, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, is one of the most dynamic university campuses in Europe and ranks among the top 20 universities worldwide. The EPFL employs more than 6,000 people supporting the three main missions of the institutions: education, research and innovation. The EPFL campus offers an exceptional working environment at the heart of a community of more than 16,000 people, including over 12,000 students and 4,000 researchers from more than 120 different countries.
Your mission :
The Laboratory for Computation Security at EPFL led by Prof. Alessandro Chiesa investigates the foundations and applications of cryptographic proofs. These are cutting-edge cryptographic tools that enable computations to be cheaply verified in a privacy-preserving way, and have revolutionized the scalability and privacy of distributed systems such as blockchains. Research areas include computational complexity, zero-knowledge proofs, succinct non-interactive arguments (SNARGs), and privacy-enhancing technologies (such as peer-to-peer private payment systems and smart contracts).
You will join the lab as a full-time developer, and collaborate with other researchers (graduate students and postdoctoral scholars) to create high-quality open-source software that realizes complex cryptographic protocols. Your software will directly impact the open-source cryptography and security communities.
Main duties and responsibilities include :
You will work on implementation and practical aspects of new protocols in the areas of cryptographic proofs, as well as their application to peer-to-peer systems.
Your responsibilities will include:
