Forwarding on behalf of Tariq. We helped them get some funding to do
research work on the intersection of Tor and IoT, and here is one of
those spots.

(Ok, reading the page in more detail, maybe it's more like the union of
Tor and IoT, not the intersection. :)

I asked him for clarification around timing and citizenship, and he said
"We are flexible in the dates. Also the person just needs the right to
work in the UK, but does not need to be a UK citizen."

Subject: Research assistant position for Tor and LWC

Hi Roger,

I hope you are well. As you know we were successful in our bid for the
REPHRAIN centre and are now in the process of hiring fine researchers and
implementers to join our projects.

I am writing about a joint project with my colleague at Edinburgh Vesselin
Velichkov (a crypto analyst) and myself.

I was wondering if you would mind spreading the word around your network for a
6 month Research Assistant/Post-doctoral researcher position. Maybe you
already know of someone, so any leads out be greatly appreciated.

In short, the project is about implementing and evaluating various light
weight crypto algorithms on embedded platforms. The project seeks to
investigate the viability and directions for embedding PETS like Tor and
mixnets to networks of IoT-class devices.

The start date is early January, but we have some slight flexibility there.
Remote work is possible, but a UK bank account is necessary.

More information can be found here:  https://www.rephrain.ac.uk/preserve/

Thanks for you help in advance.

Best wishes,

The University of Edinburgh is a charitable body, registered in
Scotland, with registration number SC005336.
