Abstractions for Mobile Applications (Postdoc Position)

October 03, 2009

(Update: the position has been filled)

Yesterday, I had an interesting phone discussion with researchers from T-Mobile, which strengthened me in my plan to make the next MoDSE case study about abstractions for mobile applications, and to make that the focus for the open postdoc position in the project.

The Software Engineering Research Group of <a href=”http://www.tudelft.nl>Delft University of Technology</a> has a vacancy for a postdoc position in the “Model-Driven Software Evolution (MoDSE)” project funded by the Jacquard Software Engineering Research program of NWO.

Job description: The candidate will lead the next MoDSE case study in domain-specific language engineering into the domain of mobile applications. The case study will consist of finding high-level, platform independent abstractions for mobile applications and creating a collection of domain-specific languages covering the domain, building on the experience and tools from the WebDSL case study.

Requirements: The candidate should have a PhD degree in Computer Science with a strong background in software engineering, specifically software language engineering, model-driven engineering, and/or programming languages. Ideally the candidate has experience with language design and implementation.

Contract: 2 years, 8 months Salary: Maximum of €3755 per month gross depending on past experience. TU Delft offers an attractive benefits package, including a flexible work week, free high-speed Internet access from home, and the option of assembling a customized compensation and benefits package (the ‘IKA’). Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

How to apply: Send applications consisting of an application letter and a detailed CV in PDF by email to Eelco Visser
