2011PhD Studentship in Computer Science, Privacy and Security, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden

The Department of Theoretical Computer Science (TCS) offers a stimulating research environment in a range of topics such as complexity theory and approximation algorithms, computer and network security, cryptography, programming languages, and formal methods. Security and safety of computer and network-based systems has been identified as an area of strategic importance.

The goal of this PhD project is to develop mechanisms and evaluate privacy and security issues for decentralized social networks in particular and for provider-independent personal communications in general.This is a four-year, time-limited position and normally includes 20% departmental duties, usually teaching. Research/doctoral students must be registered at KTH. The starting date is open for discussion, though ideally we would like the successful candidate to start as soon as possible.The applicant is expected to have a strong background and interest in computer science, including subjects such as networking, distributed systems, security, and game theory.
