For a better knowledge of the proposed research subject :

Lattices are mathematical objects which have emerged in the past twenty years as a key technique for public-key cryptography: the ongoing standardization of homomorphic encryption and the majority of the candidates to NIST’s post-quantum standardization rely on the conjectured hardness of lattice problems.

The PARQ project aims at readying lattice-based cryptography for real-world deployment, by protecting it against the most powerful adversaries, from ASIC farms to quantum computers. It will study the best parallel and quantum algorithms for lattice problems, and propose automated tools to select safe parameters. 

Collaboration :
The recruited person will be in connection with the P.I. Phong Nguyen, as well as Frédéric Magniez and Brice Minaud.

Main activities

The goal is to study the best parallel and quantum algorithms for lattice problems, as well as design new tools to select safe parameters for lattice-based cryptography.


Languages : English. 

Other valued appreciated : Curiosity

Remuneration will be determined by degree and experience.
