Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) has a vacancy in the Computer Security research group for a talented Scientific programmer, on the subject of Internet architecture renovation.

Job description
As part of the European Next Generation Internet project, the job is to work on a new architecture for communication over the Internet. This project is a rip-and-replace effort of the BSD-style socket by an innovative abstraction: connectors. Connectors are based on decades of research performed at the CWI. Over the course of at least two years, building further on an existing reference implementation, we will research & develop a distributed and fault-tolerant version of the connector communication mechanism, and will work together with the Internet community on standardization. The development is fully public and open source (EUPL). There is lots of freedom to experiment and do independent research, that could result in the development of compiler optimizations, protocol language extensions, or security features.


Candidates are required to have a completed Master degree in the area of Computer Science or a related discipline. Candidates are specialized in foundations, Internet architecture, compilers, programming languages or a related subfield. Needed qualifications for candidates include proven systems programming talent and good (academic) writing and presentation skills. Candidates are expected to have an excellent command of English. Desired, but optional, qualifications are: proven kernel programming experience, and/or proven Internet architecture contributions.


The terms of employment are in accordance with the Dutch Collective Labour Agreement for Research Centres ("CAO-onderzoeksinstellingen"). The gross monthly salary for an employee on a full time basis, depending on relevant work experience, ranges from € 2,939 to € 4,452. The appointment will be for a period of two years. Employees are also entitled to a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary and a year-end bonus of 8.33%. CWI offers attractive working conditions, including flexible scheduling.
