Post-doc position in Software Technology for Smart Software Systems at Western Norway University

by Lars Michael Kristensen, Aug. 22, 2020

Western Norway University of Applied Sciences (HVL), Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences has an open position as a post-doctoral researcher for two years. The position is funded by the university grant S3UNIP project on smart software systems.

Smart software systems employ a combination of cloud computing software and platforms, autonomous computing devices, sensors and actuators with Internet connectivity, and model-based data analytics and prediction. The vision of the present S3UNIP project is to undertake research into a joint technology platform and framework supporting the development of smart software systems. This will include research, prototyping, and software tool development, in collaboration with permanent staff members, post-doctoral researchers, and PhD students. The post-doctoral researcher will also be more broadly involved in ongoing research efforts within model-driven software engineering, automated code generation, software testing, quality, and verification. 


The researcher will be affiliated with the software engineering research group at HVL ( ). The research group currently includes 10 professors and associate professors, one post-doctoral researcher, 12 PhD candidates, and several master’s students.  The group focuses on foundations of software engineering, development of tools and technology, empirical software engineering, and implementation and evaluation of software system prototypes. The software engineering research group is involved in several externally funded projects related to smart software systems. These include the SmartOcean centre for research-based innovation, a smart city initiative with the municipality of Bergen, the DYNAMIC project on early fire risk warning, and the NFR lighthouse project on Introducing Personalized Treatment of Mental Health Problems using Adaptive Technology.  The research group has cooperation with many national and international research groups, and with national and regional industry partners.
