Prashant Nalini Vasudevan
Postdoc in Theory of Cryptography

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Department of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore for researchers with a strong background in theoretical computer science who work on the foundations of cryptography, information-theoretic cryptography, or related areas of complexity theory and algorithms. An ideal candidate would be someone who has an independent research agenda of their own and also shares enough of my research interests that we can collaborate consistently. (Details about my interests are on other parts of this website.)

  • Good publication record in major theory and/or cryptography conferences
  • PhD in Computer Science (or a related field like Mathematics), or being on track to obtaining one before the start date
Start Date
Ideally between April and August 2023, though other dates can be considered
Initial contract of one or two years, can be extended further based on performance
SGD 8,000/month, and medical benefits
