Text: UOL03984 31-Dec-2099 About the SnT SnT is a leading international research and innovation centre in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services. We play an instrumental role in Luxembourg by fueling innovation through research partnerships with industry, boosting R&D investments leading to economic growth, and attracting highly qualified talent. The Centre is rapidly expanding its research activities and is seeking highly motivated doctoral candidates who wish to pursue research in close cooperation with our partners. For further information you may check: www.securityandtrust.lu and https://wwwen.uni.lu/snt/research/finatrax We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place! Your Role Successful candidates will join a passionate and motivated research group led by Prof. Dr. Gilbert Fridgen. The group consists of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers coming from different disciplines (e.g., policy, business, technology) to pursue leading-edge research and to transfer the results into practice. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to make an important contribution to several exciting research projects. In particular they will have the opportunity to establish first principles for the governance of economic interactions between machines, designing market mechanisms, incentives, and governance frameworks. They will - among other research activities - participate in the FiReSpARX project, a research project creating a framework for governing the economic interactions of space robots. In space, the unexpected can happen frequently, so planning cooperation between these robots in advance is not always possible. Instead, robots will need to make autonomous economic decisions, following the economic rationale of their owner company. Next to these activities, successful candidates will carry out research in the context of Prof. Fridgen’s PayPal-FNR PEARL Research Grant in the area of Distributed Ledger Technologies, Digital Identities, and Tokenization. Successful candidates will thus have the opportunity to investigate a broad range of research areas and design an individual research portfolio. As such, successful candidates will be able to align the skills that they learn pursuing a doctorate with their personal goals and interests.
