Wed Oct 3 00:11:01 CEST 2012
Funded Ph.D. positions are available in a research-industry project
aiming at modeling and analysing interface-control documents
describing avionic systems, in Québec and Ontario, Canada.
The overall goal of this project is to reduce the cost of the
development and maintenance of avionic systems built using
interface-control documents (ICDs). We seek more cost-effective and
more reliable ways to use ICDs and the interfaces that they describe,
which are at different levels of granularity, by focusing on their
use by architects for their integration and validation when building
avionic systems. We want to help engineers integrate, verify, and
validate their safety-critical avionic systems. The Ph.D. students
will develop and investigate meta-models, DSLs, and compiler-based
analyses to model and analyse interface-control documents.
Candidates must have a Master degree (or equivalent) in any
discipline of Computer Science or Computer/Software Engineering and
must be able to work in a collaborative research-industry
environment, with strong abilities to define and achieve objectives.
Candidates must be willing to move to and work in Montréal, Québec,
Canada, in English or French. Knowledge of both languages will be
considered a plus. Candidates will be funded with competitive
scholarships of $CA 19,500.00 per year and may be exempted of tuition
fees under certain conditions.
Highly-motivated candidates must send their application to Yann-Gaël
Guéhéneuc (yann-gael.gueheneuc at polymtl.ca). Applications must contain
a statement of interest and a detailed CV as well as a set of (at
least) two referees. Selected candidates will be asked to provide
degrees and grades, master thesis (or a draft thereof), and should be
prepared to visit academic and industrial partners in Montréal, if
possible. There is no deadline for applications, candidates will be
evaluated based on their merits and on a first-arrived, first-chosen
