Joining our group as a Master’s or Ph.D. student:

If you want to join our group as a Master’s or Ph.D. student, apply through Koç University Graduate School of Sciences and Engineering and indicate Cryptography/Security/Privacy as your research interest. You can contact us about further details regarding papers or projects. Such applications will always be welcome. Due to the nature of the topic, and the fact that most people do not learn this during their undergraduate years, Ph.D. applicants will be given priority.

Note that the compensation package offered by Koç University is great!

We have special fellowships for students from abroad.

Joining our group as a postdoc:

If you want to join our group as a postdoc, please contact us directly with your concrete research proposal, one of your best papers where you are the main author, your CV, and references. If you already have a funding source, please indicate it. The broad theme for research must be related to cryptography, security, and privacy.

Joining our group as an undergraduate student or intern:

If you are an undergraduate student and want to work on a project or do an internship in our group, contact us with your unofficial transcript and a CV. Both Koç University students and other university students at undergraduate or graduate level can apply.

Check Koç University Summer Research Program and Work-Study Program for details.

Opportunities through senior projects are also available. Please contact directly for those.

Collaborating with our group:

We are always open for collaboration, so please do not hesitate to contact us regarding any opportunities. Even when you do not see an immediate opportunity, contact us so that whenever we see a possibility to utilize your expertise, we can contact back.

If you are representing a company or a governmental institution who want to collaborate on a specific project, contact us so that we can arrange a meeting to discuss the details.

Our group has special interest in collaborating on European Union funded projects, or bilateral and multi-lateral joint funding programs for research projects between Türkiye and one or more countries as listed by TÜBİTAK.

For consulting and advisory roles, please contact Alptekin Küpçü directly.
