Functieomschrijving

Are you inspired to work for an exciting new project within the Software Engineering and Technology cluster (SET)? We are looking for an enthusiastic faculty member who will lead this new project as Assistant Professor.

As part of its strategy, the SET group has developed a 'moonshot'-project: to develop an 'Intelligent Assistant for Software Developers'. Such an intelligent assistant should be able to answer various questions from developers about the system under development. We will focus on questions that relate to the design and architecture of the system, such as for example: 'Where is this feature implemented in this system?', and 'Does this API support proper Information Hiding?'

To answer such questions, we have developed a roadmap. For this roadmap, we want to build an ecosystem of technologies and tools around the following theme's:
  • Knowledge Mining - this includes techniques for mining knowledge from the large variety of sources in software project: sources include natural language (e.g. Requirements and Architecture Descriptions using Natural Language Processing), source code and (UML) models of the design (e.g. for reconstructing Implementation-Architecture mappings) as well as artefacts reflecting communication and collaboration between software developers (e.g., version control systems, groupware or public Q&A forums).
  • Knowledge Representation - All the information found about a system will be collected in a central knowledge repository using techniques like ontologies and knowledge-graphs.
  • Innovative techniques for analysing/reasoning and exploration of systems - this includes techniques for reasoning about (architecture) design principles (such as e.g. layering, modularity, information hiding) and their impact on such quality aspects of software systems as correctness, evolution, fairness and sustainability.
  • More user-centric and more intuitive interaction such as use of voice and touch for SE-tools, as well as smart software-visualisation tools.

All of these technologies/tools are targeted at supporting engineers in developing software systems. We look for candidates that can contribute to these theme's (priority is on the first 3 themes: Mining, Representation and Reasoning).

The SET cluster at TU/e has a strong track record in empirical software engineering research in such areas as software architecture, model-based software development, mining software repositories and social aspects of software engineering. The SET group has many collaborations with companies in the Eindhoven region, in The Netherlands and in Europe. SET actively participates in the major SE conferences, including ICSE, ICSA, ICSME, MODELS, MSR, Euromicro-SEAA.

Applicants should
  • have obtained PhD in Software Engineering, Computer Science, or comparable domain.
  • indicate their ability to provide high quality education, as shown by experience or assistance in teaching and positive evaluations of these teaching efforts.
  • be proficient in English, orally and in writing.

As part of their position as an Assistant Professor at SET the candidate is expected to
  • Contribute to the recruitment of second and third flow of funds (i.e. public and private funding);
  • Co-supervise academic personnel in carrying out research;
  • Contribute and/or provide leadership to working groups, committees or project teams in the department.
  • Establish a strong industry network; proven by joint collaborations, projects, and publications.
  • Excell in communication, organization, and leadership skills demonstrating the potential of building your own research team.
