  • Full-time
  • Legal Entity: Robert Bosch GmbH

Company Description

At Bosch, we shape the future by inventing high-quality technologies and services that spark enthusiasm and enrich people’s lives. Our promise to our associates is rock-solid: We grow together, we enjoy our work, and we inspire each other. Welcome to Bosch.

The Robert Bosch GmbH is looking forward to your application!

Job Description

With Carbyne Stack, Bosch is developing an open source cloud platform for computing on encrypted data using Secure Multiparty Computation (MPC). Potential use cases include Privacy-Preserving Machine Learning and Privacy-Preserving Data Analytics. For such large computations on big data, active secure MPC becomes quite expensive. Bosch Research is therefore trying to reduce the computational and communication costs of MPC by optimizing the underlying cryptographic primitives and protocols.

Thus, we are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate with a strong background and/or interest in applied cryptography. The successful candidate will:

  • become a part of our interdisciplinary team and driveresearch on MPC
  • develop novel approaches to improve the practical efficiency of actively secure MPC protocols
  • design efficient MPC protocols for diverse use-cases
  • integrate the results into our Cabyne Stack open source MPC platform
  • publish and present the results in top-tier journals and at conferences


  • Education: Master Degree (or equivalent) with excellent grades in IT Security, Computer Science, Mathematics, or a related field
  • Experience and Knowledge: strong background in (applied) cryptography with a particular focus on cryptographic protocols/MPC, including security models and basic security proof techniques; good software development/programming skills and the motivation to integrate scientific results into Carbyne Stack
  • Personality and Working Practice: self-motivated and enthusiastic, independent, reliable, creative, and able to work in an international team with diverse background
  • Languages: fluent English language skills

Additional Information

The final PhD topic is subject to your university. Start: according to prior agreement

Please submit all relevant documents (incl. curriculum vitae, certificates).

Diversity and inclusion are not just trends for us but are firmly anchored in our corporate culture. Therefore, we welcome all applications, regardless of gender, age, disability, religion, ethnic origin or sexual identity.
