Would you like to help design a science-based blockchain that is perpetually cutting edge? Do you thrive in a science team working closely with internal and external world-leading researchers at COBRA, Aarhus University and ETH Zurich?
Our in-house science team is researching all aspects of blockchain technology to ensure that our solutions are sound and secure, and we are seeking to add a researcher to the team, who will work on theoretical and practical aspects of smart contracts.
We expect you to have a research background (e.g., Ph.D.) in engineering or computer science. The ideal candidate has a strong interest in:
● Data structures enabling efficient handling of states of the blockchain including smart contracts
● Evaluating and optimizing resource requirements
● Semantics and design of programming languages
● Designing and building efficient storage solutions
We expect you to have practical experience with one or more of the above.
As part of our in-house science team, you will also work closely with the tech team at Concordium in developing design documents in scientific quality assurance, and as an internal consultant to the tech team, product development, marketing and management teams.
An important part of the job is close collaboration with the tech team. You should, therefore, be interested in technology development and have an understanding of programming and software development methodologies.
As part of the job, you will stay up-to-date with leading researchers in the field by attending conferences, surveying state-of-the-art research, and doing active research in the field.
We are primarily looking to hire in Zurich, Switzerland and Aarhus, Denmark. Remote working is also possible.
Concordium is a Public and Sustainable Proof-of-Stake blockchain with a unique Identity layer at the protocol level. Concordium differs from other participants by offering low transaction costs in fiat and regulator readiness by introducing built-in identity management at the protocol level and zero-knowledge proofs, which are used to replace anonymity with perfect identifiable privacy.
Concordium is developed by professionals with global multi-sector experience and in collaboration with the Concordium Blockchain Research Center Aarhus (COBRA) at Aarhus University and Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH). The network will ultimately eventually be fully decentralized, the code open source and further development orchestrated through an advanced governance mechanism.
