Open PhD position in Pesto team at Inria (Nancy, France)
The PESTO Team at INRIA Nancy-Grand Est aims at building formal models
and techniques for computer-aided analysis and design of security protocols.
We have an open Ph.D. research position and are looking for an
enthusiastic Ph.D. candidate to work on the SAPIC/Tamarin security
protocol verification tool chain. Possible projects include supporting
more cryptographic primitives, improving the verification of
privacy-type properties, or investigate novel and promising applications.
The candidate should have a good knowledge of logic (deduction, trees,
proofs), and should not be afraid of writing proofs. For the
implementation part, a good command of Haskell, OCaml, or a similar
functional language is necessary. Security knowledge is not mandatory,
but a plus.

Start date: September 1, 2017
Duration: 3 years
