PhD scholarship in Safe AI at IT University of Copenhagen
IT University of Copenhagen
This PhD position is within the DIREC subproject on Verifiable and Safe AI for Autonomous Systems. The aim is to develop methods and tools that will enable industry to automatically learn controllers for safety critical systems within a variety of domains. The challenge is to offer the advantages of AI-based system (robustness to small changes, near-optimality) to the safety critical industry which requires strong guarantees about the behavior of the controller. The key problem is to explore the design space between the controller synthesis (correct-by-construction) and reinforcement learning (efficient but based on sampling) to design new learning methods. The project will be run in collaboration with Aalborg University, and industrial partners: Grundfos, Seluxit, Aarhus Vand, and HOFOR.

An ideal candidate has background in computer science, including some foundations of machine learning and program verification (for example model-checking, abstract interpretation, or symbolic execution).

Questions about this position can be directed to Professor Andrzej Wasowski (

Vacancy for 2 PhD candidates on the intersection of Model-Based Testing, Software Product Lines and High-Tech Systems. Come work with Jan Tretmans and me on a topic tuned to your interests (formal to applied, with industry partners). Apply until Nov 11.
Modeling and Testing of Quantum Programs
Simula Research Laboratory
The ambition is to develop radically new methods for automated and systematic testing of quantum programs using model-based approaches, based on a rigorous theoretical foundation with the ultimate goal of supporting future ubiquitous services and data related to quantum computing (QC) applications to guarantee their dependability.
PhD position - Collaborative human-centric model-driven approaches for eHealth
Monash University
Using big data analytics to improve decision-making has become a highly active research and practice area in many fields including eHealth. Big data analytics projects involve stakeholders from different backgrounds including domain experts, business managers, data scientists, and software engineers. Model-driven software engineering aims to improve the software development process by employing high-level, domain-specific models in the implementation, integration, maintenance, and testing of software systems. Model-based software tools are very useful for multidisciplinary teams where a range of complicated steps and users with different skill sets are involved.

This project aims to develop online collaborative domain specific visual languages (DSVLs) for designing eHealth data analytics applications. Such tools would empower domain experts and business managers during the discovery and exploration phase by modeling the problem, extracting insights/patterns, and designing predictive/clustering models (if feasible) before they involve other stakeholders such as data scientists and software engineers. Such tools provide multidisciplinary team members from different backgrounds with a common language to communicate and collaborate through the software development process.

PostDoc position in Model-Driven Engineering at Mälardalen University (Sweden)
Mälardalen University
The ITEA3 BUMBLE project, funded in Sweden by Vinnova and run in cooperation with 20+ academic and industrial partners from 4 countries, is recruiting a postdoctoral researcher.

BUMBLE aims at providing an innovative system and software development framework based on blended modelling notations/languages (e.g. textual and graphical). The framework is expected to provide automatic generation and management of fully-fledged blended modelling environments from arbitrary domain-specific modelling languages. Blended modelling environments are expected to greatly boost the development of complex multi-domain systems by enabling seamless textual and graphical collaborative modelling.

The postdoc will focus on a variety of challenges related to blended modelling, including: definition of (meta)models for the description of blended languages, design and implementation of model transformations to ensure seamless synchronization across notations, consistency management and change propagation for collaborative modelling/design.

The postdoc will work with the project team in BUMBLE, but is expected to manage her/his duties independently and to contribute with, e.g., co-supervision to PhD students’ research.

The position is a temporary employment of 2 years.
