Cryptography has quickly become a central and popular theme within degree
programmes at the University of Bristol. Funded in part by EPSRC research
projects, the cryptography research group is offering several "internships"
for summer 2009/10. The idea is that over the two month summer vacation
period, students will work on selected topics within the research projects.
This work will be paid at roughly 250 UKP per-week, and will be supported
by close interaction with academic and research staff within the group.
This is an exciting opportunity for top class, penultimate year (i.e., 3rd
year MEng/MSci or 2nd year BSc) students to get a head start on individual
projects; we intend to favour those pursuing cryptography related individual
projects, or PhD-level study.
Interested applicants should visit the research group web-page
to get an idea of the current group interests; for more information or to
make an application, send a short one page "project proposal" (or outline
of interests) to Dan Page or drop into MVB-3.10 to discuss ideas.
