The Delft Blockchain Lab (DBL) of Delft of University of Technology invites applicants for postdoc and research engineer positions in all technological, application-oriented, and societal aspects of blockchain technology. Contract duration will be one year or longer.
DBL carries out three research tracks: core blockchain technology and engineering, blockchain applications, and societal aspects of the blockchain.
In the first track, DBL will design and implement a complete software stack for trust in the internet. For this purpose, DBL is interested in many computer science topics that are relevant for blockchain, e.g., consensus protocols, blockchain-based markets, modeling trust, verifying smart contracts, and database and security issues.
In blockchain applications, DBL is especially interested in incorporating blockchain in the operation of intelligent electric power grids and in the provisioning of information for humanitarian aid.
In the third track, DBL wants to study ethical aspects and and science communication of blockchain technology. More specific, the collaboration between the multiple stakeholders in blockchain development in which values, knowledge and perceptions on blockchain and its societal implications are shared amongst stakeholders, and how this inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration influences blockchain development itself. The third track has a design-based research character in which research and practice of blockchain development are intertwined.
DBL is looking for talented and ambitious blockchain enthusiasts. Their responsibilities include:
• (postdocs) Conducting research in the core technology, applications, or societal aspects of blockchain technology
• (research engineers) Developing, engineering and experimenting with new blockchain solutions and applications;
• (both) Co-supervising MSc students and collaborating with external project partners.
Applicants for a postdoc position must have a PhD degree in a relevant area, and a proven track record of research excellence.
Applicants for a research engineer position must have an MSc degree in a relevant area, and proven programming skills.
For both types of positions, applicants must have the ambition to strengthen and expand the research in blockchain (technology) of DBL, a team player mentality, and good communication and social skills.
