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 2 postdoctoral researchers.
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.
The 2 postdocs 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 postdocs will work with the project team in BUMBLE, but are expected to
manage their duties independently and to contribute with, e.g., co-supervision, to PhD students’ research.
The positions are a temporary employment of 2 years. The successful applicants will have the opportunity to work in an exciting research environment together with researchers and practictioners from academia and industry.
QualificationsThe applicants are required to possess a PhD degree in Computer Science and excellent knowledge and skills in theoretical and practical software engineering (at least 60 ECTS in programming, programming languages and software engineering) with particular emphasis on model-driven engineering, especially graphical and textual modelling, modelling and manipulation of software/system/data models, model transformations, as well as Java programming in the Eclipse platform. Knowledge and experience with UML, Eclipse Modeling Framework, Xtext and transformation languages such as Xtend are crucial.
The positions require a strong motivation for research, good verbal and written communication skills in English, and a self-standing attitude. 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.
