Position descriptionThe ITEA3 BUMBLE project, funded in Sweden by Vinnova and run in cooperation with 25+ academic and industrial partners from 5 countries, is recruiting a PhD student.
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.
This PhD-student 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 student will work with the project team in BUMBLE, but is also expected to be able to work independently.
QualificationsOnly those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle courses and study programmes at a higher education may be appointed to doctoral studentships. For futher information see Chapter 5 of the Higher Education Ordinance (SFS 1993:100).
To qualify as a PhD student, you should have a master's level degree in computer science, computer engineering, or equivalent.
Prior knowledge about software/system/data/information modelling is required.
Prior knowledge of modelling environments, such as EMF and MPS, is considered a distinguished merit.
The position requires a strong motivation for research, good verbal and written communication skills in English. Decisive importance is attached to personal suitability. We value the qualities that an even distribution of age and gender, as well as ethnic and cultural diversity, can contribute to the organization.
