Applications are invited for a new professorship in Software Engineering 
at DTU Informatics (Department of Informatics and Mathematical 
Modelling) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU). The professor 
will be affiliated with the Software Engineering Section, and will be in 
charge of further development of the section. The professor is also 
expected to create strong interactions with other Sections at DTU 
Informatics, thus actively taking part in the definition, development 
and promotion of the future IT profile of DTU Informatics.

The Software Engineering Section has 8 faculty members and 3 consultants 
doing software development for the public sector and industry. This 
provides a unique setting for combining theoretical and applied research.

Research in the Software Engineering Section covers model-based software 
development, formal modeling and verification, requirements engineering, 
and software development processes. This gives a unique setting for 
combining theoretical and applied research. The research is related to 
application domains currently covering transport, energy and the 

The combination of two technological trends: rapid component 
miniaturization and the emergence of high-speed wireless communications 
have changed the computing platform from stand alone- and Web 
applications in fixed network structures, to highly dynamic networks 
where programs may move among nodes, and may evolve and change 
structure. This change of computing platform creates challenges and 
opportunities for Software Engineering, covering everything from the 
theoretical foundation to practical implementation.

A preferred candidate should be able to address these challenges based 
on the competences of the Software Engineering Section and in close 
interaction with other sections at DTU Informatics. The candidate should 
demonstrate the ability to combine theoretical knowledge with practical 
development within one of the following (or closely related) areas:

     Software Engineering for mobile and distributed computing (form 
Internet-of-Things, over adaptive systems, to user interaction)
     Software Engineering for high performance computing (from massive 
parallel super computers, over GPUs, to multi-core processors)

For the official announcement and instructions on how to apply, please 


Deadline is September 15th, 12:00 noon.

Further information may be obtained from Head of Department, Professor 
Helle Rootzén, tel.: +45 4525 3370.
