Open PhD/Doctoral Studentships

The need for speed: HPC-supported side-channel attacks

Under their ACE-CSR programme, the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) is funding a PhD studentship in the field of applied cryptography. Based within the Cryptography research group at the University of Bristol (UoB), the studentship covers University fees, a tax-free stipend of around £20,000 per-annum, plus a generous travel budget that supports attendance at international conferences and training events. As a result of this funding mechanism, only applications from UK nationals can be considered. Further, since the successful applicant will spend around 2 to 4 weeks per year at GCHQ in Cheltenham, they must be prepared to undergo appropriate security clearance procedures before starting.
