The Spirals research team (University of Lille/Inria, https://team.inria.fr/spirals/ <https://team.inria.fr/spirals/>) is looking for candidates for a PhD position in Software Engineering.

Research topics include, but are not limited to:
- self-adaptation
- machine learning
- evolution
- verification

Self-adaptive systems are meant to adapt at run time in reaction to context changes. This adaptation logic is defined 
at design time by software developers. However, anticipating during design time all possible context changes that may
occur at run time is not possible due to the uncertainty inherent, among others, to complex, distributed and variable
run time environments. In addition, it is also challenging to predict how these systems will evolve over time, thus changing 
their adaptation capabilities. In this thesis, we aim at proposing novel approaches for taming uncertainty and complexity 
in evolving self-adaptive systems. In particular, we investigate several research directions, including learning techniques 
and optimization mechanisms.
