The Opportunity

The Faculty of Information Technology aims to lead global IT research and education. Our research is multi‑disciplinary, multi‑campus and multi‑national, giving us a unique capacity to reach out further and deeper than any other institution in Australia.

A blockchain research joint lab has just been established between Monash University Faculty of Information Technology, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and an Australia-based FinTech company. As a result of this establishment, we have several openings for research fellows to work on a project about post-quantum cryptographic algorithms in blockchain.

Selected candidates will have a unique opportunity to work closely with an international team of key researchers located in Hong Kong and Shanghai. More information can be found at users.monash.edu.au/~kailiu/

Ideally you will have or be working towards a PhD degree and a very strong background in at least one of the following areas:

  • post-quantum cryptography
  • zero-knowledge protocol
  • blockchain
  • cryptocurrency
  • smart contract

If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.

Your application must address the selection criteria. Please refer toDownload File "How to apply for Monash jobs"
