Research Position for a PhD Candidate (f/m) - Computer Science Research Training Group
Published(86 days ago)
Deadline for applications(79 days ago)
Carl von Ossietzky University of OldenburgOldenburg
The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, Germany, offers
2 Research Positions for a PhD Candidate
in the second phase of the Computer Science Research Training Group "SCARE -- System Correctness under Adverse Conditions"
http://scare.uni-oldenburg.de funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG GRK 1765/2). The positions are
available from October 1, 2018, and for a duration of three years.
SCARE addresses computerized systems cooperating with their environment. System correctness requires that this cooperation
satisfies desired behavioral properties. SCARE investigates system correctness under adverse, only partially predictable
conditions, which can influence the behavior of the system, the system context, and the assumptions made for verifying correctness.
SCARE considers three aspects of adverse conditions, both individually and in their combination: limited knowledge,
unpredictable behavior, changing system environment and system structure. SCARE aims at notions of system correctness
that guarantee robustness of the system behavior under such adverse conditions.
For the doctorands SCARE offers:
a salary in the public sector pay scale E13 TV-L (amounts to over 2,000 Euro per month after deduction of taxes);
positions that are suitable for part-time employment;
a contract for three years;
research positions enabling the doctorands to concentrate on their PhD projects;
a cooperative and supportive research environment;
supervision by two expert professors;
support for traveling to conferences and visits of foreign research institutes;
regular visits of invited guest researchers;
a full spectrum of opportunities for knowledge acquisition;
support for equal opportunities in science.
Successful applicants for the research program should have an excellent Master’s degree or equivalent in Computer Science or
a closely related discipline like Mathematics, fluency in English, and an interest in exploring new notions of system correctness.
To this end, we expect skills in developing or applying formal methods.
We invite applications for two research positions. An application must comprise a CV, a detailed statement
of interest in SCARE referring explicitly to one or two PhD topics proposed for SCARE-2 on the web page
http://scare.uni-oldenburg.de, transcripts of the records summarizing the candidate's academic performance, and names of
two references as four separate PDF documents and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 31, 2018.
The Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg seeks to increase the proportion of women in science. Therefore, women are
strongly encouraged to apply for the offered positions. According to §21, 3 NHG (the law governing universities in the German
state of Lower Saxony) female applicants with equal qualification will be preferred. Applicants with disabilities will be preferentially
considered in case of equal qualification.
