Idemia (formerly Morpho and Oberthur) in cooperation with EURECOM, is looking for excellent candidates for a PhD position (CIFRE).

The goal of this CIFRE PhD thesis is to design novel techniques and methodologies to enable the implementation of secure primitives for trustworthy acquisition of biometric data and usage in security-sensitive scenarios. Applications include, for example, smartphone-based identification and payments. Standard smartphones may be used and have different levels of security. For example, some devices may have a TEE and/or a Secure Element. In some cases the system and the platform may be modified to improve security. The position will be located at Idemia offices in Sophia Antipolis with part of the time in EURECOM and frequent interactions with the Idemia teams in Paris (main location in Paris is possible).
