About the position

This postdoctoral researcher position is part of the Norwegian Research Council Young Research Talents project CROFLOW (Enabling Highly Automated Cross-Organisational Workflow Planning, The goal of the project is to develop an innovative model-driven methodology and framework that facilitates planning business process with highly automated analyses and tool support.

Our research involves developing theories and techniques to formally model and analyse cross-organisational workflows in terms of concurrent programs, and to automate workflow revisioning upon changes in the execution dependencies and resource constraints. This specific position will be contributing to the development of a framework for automating workflow modelling and planning based on the orchestration of static analyses and dynamic refactoring of the workflow models, together with the other project members and external partners. The prospective postdoctoral researcher should be interested in formal analysis for concurrent programs, with the application on concurrent workflow models.

The postdoctoral researcher will have the possibility to do research stays at other research institutes abroad as well as at the CROFLOW’s external partners, including Uppsala University in Sweden and the University of Lübeck in Germany.
