Description of the subject area
Linköping University now seeks a Professor in Software Technologies for Complex Software Systems. The position is associated with the Wallenberg AI, Autonomous Systems and Software Program (WASP) which is Sweden’s largest individual research program ever; a major national initiative for strategically motivated basic research, education and faculty recruitment with a total budget exceeding USD500 million. WASP is hosted by Linköping University and comprises five Swedish full partner universities and a substantial part of Swedish industry and commerce. The WASP initiative includes among many instruments an international recruitment program that includes the present position.
The focus of the position is development of tools and technologies for developing and maintaining complex software systems. Examples of expertise sought after include
- Tools for model-driven software engineering where in particular graphical entities and declarative formalisms constitute core modeling concepts from which software system or cyber-physical systems can be prototyped or automatically synthesized;
- Tools and technologies for developing and maintaining heterogeneous and distributed software architectures whiles building appropriate abstractions supporting e.g. virtualization and cloud computing;
- State of the art tools and technologies for scalable test- and verification of very large complex software systems.
A successful candidate will be affiliated with The Division for Software and Systems (SaS). The division conducts research and education in the following areas: Software Engineering, Programming Environments, Systems Software, Embedded SW/HW Systems, Computer Systems Engineering, Real-Time Systems and Theoretical Computer Science.
