PhD Programme / Research Internship

Students interested in doing their PhDs at the Applied Cryptography Unit are encouraged to formally apply to OIST's fully-funded PhD programme, as described here.
(note that all processing and admission is carried out centrally; the Unit does receive PhD applications directly.)

OIST also carries out a very popular and succesful research internship programme, aimed at bachelor/master's students or recent graduates interested in joining OIST as a research intern; see here.
