About Codex Student Program

The Codex Student Program (CSP) is aimed at Master and PhD students looking to gain experience and do research and development in one of the domains of interest related to the Codex project. The grant is intended to help students gain visibility on their field of interest and at the same time allow them to learn about common research and development practices that should be beneficial for their continuing careers.

Research Topics

There are two main projects we are working on, one is about data availability sampling (DAS) in collaboration with the Ethereum Foundation and the other one is related to the Codex decentralized storage platform. More specifically, the CSP aims to do research and development in, but not limited to:

  • Data Availability Sampling for scaling blockchains
    • Large scale simulations of distributed systems
    • Peer-to-peer overlays and communication protocols
    • Statistical testing and property verification
    • Data visualization and analysis
  • Decentralized storage solutions
    • Erasure coding optimizations for large-scale distributed storage
    • Proof of data retrievability and other storage related proofs
    • Game theory in the context of incentivized storage
    • Storage performance measurement and testing

Eligibility

This program is available to Master and PhD students officially enrolled at a university, pursuing their M.Sc. or Ph.D. in the field of Computer Sciences or a related field.

The Grant

The CSP is very flexible and adapts to different levels of experience as well as to different lengths. The following numbers are just indicative, as the final stipend might slightly change depending on the student experience as well as to adapt to differing regions’ cost. For an officially enrolled PhD student, the CSP offers a stipend in the range of $2,000/month (full-time equivalent).

In addition, the CSP might also offer some mobility grants to attend meetings and related conferences that are within the scope of the research field of the internship.

Research Methodology

A member of the Codex team will be assigned as supervisor of the student for the duration of the CSP. Students will be invited to participate in weekly meetings to discuss the progress done and raise questions or concerns.

A clear end-of-CSP deliverable will be given to the student depending on the length and complexity of the project. This could be a software, a report, a talkamong others.
