The Open Source Research group at the Friedrich-Alexander-University of
Erlangen-Nuremberg is seeking to hire recent graduates or experienced
software developers to start doctoral studies immediately. We have
several open positions.

The main research topic are open source software engineering processes,
practices, and tools. Examples of application domains of interest are
software forges (tools), business applications, medical technology,
mobile devices, and social software. Broader software engineering topics
with a tie-in to open source are also of interest. Research work will
typically require a combination of analytical and empirical work
combined with software development work. The university supports the
creation of startups from prior doctoral research work.

A prerequisite to starting Ph.D. studies in Germany are a German Diplom
or an M.S. degree from an accredited university, typically in a
technical field. Prior industry experience, or experience with open
source projects and/or agile methods is a plus.

Salary is competitive and the tri-city area of Nuernberg/Fuerth/Erlangen
is one of Germany's most beautiful and historic areas. Total population
is about one million inhabitants. You can live in the quaint and
family-oriented college town of Erlangen or in cosmopolitan Nuernberg
with its world-famous Christmas market or in historic Fuerth. See
Wikipedia for more details.

To apply, please send an email with your interests and a C.V. to the
group's leader, Prof. Dr. Dirk Riehle, at dirk.riehle at cs.fau.de.

start a Ph.D. studies at a later point in time.
