Two programmer positions are available in the Embedded Systems "ES"
Research Unit at Bruno Kessler Foundation, Center for Information


The Embedded System Research Unit (ES Unit) of the Information and
Communication Technology Center of the Bruno Kessler Foundation,
Trento, Italy consists of about 25 persons, including researchers,
post-Doc, PhD students, and programmers. The Unit carries out
research, tool development and technology transfer in the fields of
design and verification of embedded systems.

Current research directions include:
. Satisfiability Modulo Theory, and its application to the
  verification of hardware, embedded critical software, and hybrid
  systems (Verilog, SystemC, C/C++, StateFlow/Simulink);
. Model Based Planning and Scheduling of aerospace domains using model
  checking and satisfiability modulo theory techniques;
. Formal Requirements Analysis based on techniques for temporal logics
  (consistency checking, vacuity detection, input determinism,
  cause-effect analysis, realizability and synthesis);
. Model-based engineering and formal verification of aerospace systems
  using model checking techniques, on-board reasoning systems for
  autonomous vehicles using planning techniques
. Formal Safety Analysis, based on the integration of traditional
  techniques (e.g. Fault-tree analysis, FMEA) with symbolic
  verification techniques.
