FIVE fulltime researchers on PhD and PostDoc-level focus: Model-based Software Engineering for technical applications
by Frank Ortmeier, Sept. 17, 2012

Starting date of the positions is November 1st, 2012 or sooner. All positions are full-time employees with a salary according to the German civil service TV-L E13/E14 scale, which corresponds to approx. 40,000-45,000 EUR income per year (plus holiday allowance and end-of-year bonus). Support for PhD thesis or habilitation will be given.

The Computer Systems in Engineering group focuses on making achievements of modern software engineering applicable to engineering applications. The current openings are part of a 1.8 million Euro project, which focuses on making model-based analysis techniques applicable in an industrial context. In particular, tight collaboration with major industrial companies, certification authorities and academic partners is required.

Your main tasks will be in the domain of requirements engineering, software design, implementation of prototypical solutions and evaluation on real-world case studies. You will be working at the boarder of modern Software Engineering and "classical/technical" engineering disciplines. So inter-disciplinary skills and interests are very welcome.

The project offers very good opportunities for building/extending a personal network with major, international industrial partners as well as the possibility of taking responsibility and becoming a co-founder of a spin-off company.

Required profile:
You must hold a Master's degree or equivalent in computer science or a closely related discipline. You should have outstanding scores and solid programming experiences. A strong background in formal methods (e.g. model checking, formal semantics, stochastic analysis) is very helpful. In any case, you be keen on translating real world problems into mathematical questions and implement high quality solutions according to modern Soft-ware Engineering standards. As the long-term goal is to bring the methods actual industrial practice, you are especially invited if you are interested in entrepreneurship and bring good social skills.

You should have interest in performing original, highly competitive scientific research, publishing the results in top international conferences and scientific journals. Self-motivation and the ability to work both independently and as a team player are expected. Fluency in English and/or German is required.

What we offer:

The CSE group is very dynamic group, which offers a young, agile and open-minded environment, the possibility to participate in highly competitive research as well as solid software development and requirements engineering challenges. Support for PhD thesis or habilitation will be given.
