About the research group


The Software Engineering & Architecture group at the University of
Groningen is committed to advancing the state of the art in the field of
software architecture. The group aims to achieve that by carrying out
joint research projects with universities, research institutes, and
industrial partners, thus combining academic know-how with industrial
practice. The research group’s core business is software architecture,
with strong emphasis on architecture modeling, knowledge, evolution,
patterns and technical debt.

Project description:


The PhD position will be part of an H2020 project entitled SDK4ED -
Software Development toolKit for Energy optimization and technical Debt

The vision of SDK4ED is to minimize cost, time and complexity of
low-energy software development processes, by providing tools for
automatic optimization of both software quality and non-functional
requirements such as energy efficiency, dependability and performance,
with the capacity to tackle the interplay between design quality and
run-time constraints.

Through its envisaged toolbox, SDK4ED will comprise a set of software
programming add-ons for preventing the degradation of run-time qualities
and especially energy consumption, while allowing for efficient
measuring of the accumulated Technical Debt during the development of
new low-energy computing software applications, including embedded
systems and IoT products.

How to apply


The position is immediately available and will be open until a suitable
candidate is found. Applications for the position should include a full
CV (name, address, degree(s), dates, etc.) and the names and email
addresses of three professional references. Please include theUniversity
