Postdoc on Key Generation using Physical Layer Security (+QKD)
Eindhoven University of Technology
Eindhoven, Netherlands, Europe

As a post-doc you are asked to lead research in this area, give guidance to students and come up with innovative concepts. The research includes defining (realistic) eavesdropper scenarios, perform secrecy analysis and come up with physical layer security schemes (e.g., one-way and two-way) to complement QKD. All with the aim to enhance the security, enable higher secure key rates and longer-distance secure communications. This position is part of the collaborative EU research project LaiQa which develops key technologies for a global quantum Internet enabled from space. The consortium consists of the Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS, Greece), the applied research organization TNO (Netherlands), Quantum Technology Laboratories GmbH QTLABS (Austria), Quantum Space Systems GmbH QSSYS (Germany), the National Observatory of Athens (Greece), the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece), and Thales Alenia Space (Italia).
