A blockchain research joint lab has just been established between Monash University Faculty of Information Technology, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and an Australia-based FinTech company. As a result of this establishment, we have several openings for research fellows to work on a project about post-quantum cryptographic algorithms in blockchain.

Selected candidates will have a unique opportunity to work closely with an international team of key researchers located in Hong Kong and Shanghai. More information can be found at users.monash.edu.au/~kailiu/

  • post-quantum cryptography
  • zero-knowledge protocol
  • blockchain
  • cryptocurrency
  • smart contract

If you believe you can fulfil these requirements, you are strongly encouraged to apply.

This role is a full-time position; however, flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
