Job openings for postdocs and research engineers in all aspects of blockchain technology

The Delft Blockchain Lab led by the Distributed Systems Group has job openings for postdocs and research engineers in all aspects of blockchain technology (deadline 15 September 2018).


Delft Blockchain-lab

DBL has been established in 2017, and is funded by the Executive Board of the university as a strategic investment in research and valorization in blockchain technology. DBL involves researchers in the Faculties of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS), Technology, Policy and Management (TPM), and Applied Sciences (AS) of TU Delft. 

The Delft Blockchain Lab is one of the largest blockchain labs in Europe, combining the work of 8 professors. Its mission is to lay the foundation for a long-term research line in blockchain and trust in the Internet.  

DBL actively pursues collaborations with partners in society and industry, and outreach to the general public. For instance, it collaborates with the Port of Rotterdam, the Ministry of the Interior, ING Bank, and the Authority Financial Markets. Similarly as DBL, these are all members of the Dutch Blockchain Coalition (, which has its home base on the campus of TU Delft.  

The director of DBL is Prof. Dick Epema and its scientific leader is Dr. Johan Pouwelse, both of the Distributed Systems (DS) Group of the Faculty EEMCS. The research on blockchain technology of DBL strongly builds on more than a decade of research an design in peer-to-peer systems, distributed accounting systems and value sensitive communication design for innovation.   

The research of DBL has a strong experimental flavor, validating the proposed new concepts by means of implementation and deployment in prototypes that are used in the real world in terms of co-design. Running code is a critical requirement for our master thesis projects. DBL has produced several world-first innovations such as a fully scalable blockchain architecture and a decentralized blockchain-regulated market, and it has replaced proof-of-work with trust.
