INRIA Paris is opening a 1 year post-doctoral research position on secure multi-party quantum computation. This research is funded through the ANR project SecNISQ. The work will be supervised by Harold Ollivier ( and will be performed in collaboration with the team of Pr. Elham Kashefi at LIP6-Sorbonne University, Dr. Celine Chevalier from CRED-Universite Paris 2 / Ecole Normale Superieure and Dr. Mark Kaplan co-founder of Veriqloud. The successful applicant will be integrated in the Paris Center for Quantum Computing vibrant ecosystem.


The project's goal is to develop new and enhance existing secure multiparty quantum computing protocols. To accomplish this, it will be possible -- without being limitative -- to leverage tools recently developed by the participants to the project (based on "Verifying BQP Computations on Noisy Devices with Minimal Overhead" and "Delegating Multi-Party Quantum Computations vs. Dishonest Majority in Two Quantum Rounds"). The project has a focus on resource overheads while maintaining the highest possible security guarantees.

Main activities

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to work in a multi-disciplinary team comprising quantum and classical cryptography experts as well as industry players akin to implement some of the protocols using real hardware.


We encourage applications from early career researchers in quantum information processing interested in one of the following sub-topics: cryptography, physical implementations of protocols, quantum algorithms, quantum communication protocols.
