Research Associate or Senior Research Associate SCARV: a side-channel hardened RISC-V platform (up to 2 posts) 

Job number  ACAD103055

Within the Department of Computer Science at the University of Bristol, the Cryptography research group fosters an internationally leading and inter-disciplinary programme of research; current and previous work spans the full range theoretical and practical aspects relating to cryptography, applied cryptography, and cryptographic engineering.
This post represents an exciting opportunity to join the group as part of the SCARV[1] project, which in turn forms part of the NCSC-supported[2] Research Institute in Hardware Security & Embedded Systems (RISE). You will work at the intersection of computer architecture and cryptography, in collaboration with industrial (i.e. Cerberus Security Labs. and Thales) and academic partners, to deliver more efficient, more secure platforms based on RISC-V. Given the project goals, a strong background in micro-processor design and implementation, and/or implementation (e.g. side-channel) attacks on cryptography is therefore desirable.
Although you will have at least a first degree and preferably a PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or closely related discipline, we view relevant industrial experience as extremely valuable and therefore equally encourage applicants of this type.
This post is offered on a full time, open ended contract with funding up to 31/01/2023.
It is anticipated that interviews will take place the week commencing 05 February 18, with a negotiable start date as soon after that as is feasible.
Informal enquiries can be made to Dr. Daniel Page ( 
The University is committed to creating and sustaining a fully inclusive culture.  We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and communities.
