10 PhD, PostDoc, and Engineering Positions offered!!
| HATS: Highly Adaptable and Trustworthy Software using Formal Models |
HATS is a new Integrated Project funded by the European Union, within the
programme "Future and Emerging Technologies" (FET) of the 7th Framework
Programme (subject to contract) starting March 2009.
The project partners from
Chalmers Technical University, Gothenborg, Sweden
University of Oslo, Norway
Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
Technical University of Madrid, Spain
IMDEA Software, Spain
Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany,
University of Bologna, Italy,
Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI), Amsterdam, Netherlands
Norwegian Computer Center, Oslo, Norway
Fredhopper B.V., Amsterdam, Netherlands
Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental SE, Kaiserslautern, Germany,
Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium
are jointly advertising several 3-5 year PhD, PostDoc, and Engineering
The goal of HATS is a tool-supported framework and formal methodology
for the development of long-lived and trustworthy software systems.
Specifically, HATS will turn software product family (SWPF) development
into a rigorous approach. The technical core of the project is an Abstract
Behavioral Specification language which will allow precise description
of SWPF features and components and their instances. For further
Topic areas: Applicants should have a background and/or interest in
one of the topics software modeling, modeling and programming
languages, formal methods, verification, language-based security, type
systems, or concurrency theory.
The following positions are offered:
* 2 PhD positions with emphasis on formal modeling and verification at
Chalmers University of Technology. One of the positions is in the EU
project CHARTER which is closely related to HATS. Application
deadline is 9th February 2009. Contact: Prof. Reiner Haehnle. Further
details and information on how to apply at
* A Research Software Engineer at Fredhopper (Amsterdam).
The position will comprise of industrial research on modeling and
verification of key components of Fredhopper's flagship product within the
EU-funded HATS research project.
Fredhopper is the Nr. 1 provider of Search & Merchandising solutions for
online business in Europe and industrial leader in the HATS project.
Apply by 31 January 2009 for the most optimal procedure.
Contact for project information: Dr. Nikolay Diakov.
More information and how to apply at:
* 2 PostDoc positions at the University of Bologna. The emphasis is
on formal modeling and verification of the kind of concurrent systems
studied in Hats using various techniques, including
behavioural techniques and type systems.
Application deadline is 31 January
(later applications may also be taken into
account). Contact: Prof. Davide Sangiorgi, see:
* 3 PhD positions with emphasis on static analysis and security at the
Technical University of Madrid/IMDEA Software. One of the positions
is in the DOVES Spanish project, which is closely related to
HATS. The application deadline is 25 January. Later applications may
also be taken into account if the positions are not
covered. Contact: Prof. German Puebla. Further details and
information on how to apply at
* 1 PhD and 1 PostDoc position in the area of software modeling and
verification at the University of Kaiserslautern. The emphasis in
the area of software modeling is on semantically founded integration
of behavioral software models, feature-based descriptions of variability
and programs. The emphasis in verification is on modular techniques for
object-oriented models and model refinement. Application deadline
is January 31. Later applications may also be taken into account.
