The Software Engineering Research Group (SERG) has recently acquired an H2020 EU project called COSMOS that will reinforce the research lines of software testing, evolution, and maintenance at TU Delft by focusing on Cyber-Physical systems.
Emerging Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)—from robotics, transportation, to medical devices—play a crucial role in the quality of life of European citizens and the future of the European economy. Increasing automation to such an extent, however, gives rise to many challenges, at the crux of which lies the hardware and software symbiosis. COSMOS proposes to overcome the strain on developing and evolving high-quality, dependable CPS by employing two key technologies: DevOps and Artificial Intelligence (AI). These technologies offer the potential to address CPS development, verification, and evolution.
For this project we are seeking enthusiastic Master students interested in obtaining a PhD degree in the cross-section of DevOps, software testing, simulation-based validation & verification (V&V), software evolution, and software quality. The prospective PhD student is expected to do high-quality research: coming up with creative solutions, working diligently to iron out all details and getting a deeper understanding, interacting with peers around the world, but also interacting with practitioners from both the open source and industrial domain to evaluate the research.
- A Master’s degree (or equivalent) in computer science
- A strong interest in software testing, software evolution, artificial intelligence, and/or empirical research
- Strong programming and software engineering skills. Good knowledge of software testing is a definite plus.
- Good communication and presentation skills in English
- Ability to work in an international team
- A healthy dose of creativeness
