Open PhD and Postdoc positions

RiSE_Logo-small1.png

The RiSE project is a National Research Network funded by the Austrian National Science Fund (FWF) on the topic of Rigorous Systems Engineering. RiSE is concerned with improving the quality of complex software systems. It aims to move beyond classical, a‑posteriori verification techniques such as model checking, to an integrated approach of system design and formal verification.

RiSE is looking for several postdocs and PhD students in formal methods, systems engineering and related fields such as programming languages and distributed systems, to work on topics such as:

  • design and verification of concurrent and real-time software;
  • reactive synthesis and game theory;
  • logical decision procedures.

We consider applications by graduates in computer science and related fields such as mathematics and computer engineering, with an excellent record.

We offer a concentration of researchers in formal methods and systems engineering which is hard to find elsewhere. RiSE brings together nine Austrian researchers as primary investigators:

Application

We invite PhD students and postdocs to join us in an ambitious program of research in Rigorous Systems Engineering started on 1 March 2011.

Please send applications either to info@arise.or.at or to one of the Principal Investigators (PIs). Applicants should include a CV and indicate clearly their topic(s) of interest and/or which PI(s) they are applying to.

Applications will be considered until positions are filled. The start date is negotiable.

RiSE is committed to equality and diversity. Female students are encouraged to apply.
