KU Leuven (company)


Posted on : 18 May 2017

Project Description

We gather more than 30 researchers working on and with distributed systems and middle-ware. 
We currently focus on multiple research challenges in the domain of application middle-ware, decentralized data-systems, software engineering and software architecture:
  • Decentralization of online software services and service ecosystems
  • Mapping of domain-specific business logic to smart contracts on block-chain-based systems
  • Application middle-ware for developing advanced block-chain-based systems
  • Integration middle-ware for combining block-chain-based peer-to-peer systems and service-oriented architectures

If you share our strong interest in security, and if you have
  • a master in computer science (or equivalent),
  • an analytical mind and technically skilled,
  • optionally some industry experience,
  • and fluent English communication skills,
then you might be the researcher we are looking for.
Expertise in Blockchain platforms (e.g. Ethereum, HyperLedger, etc), software architecture, as well as application middleware and integration middleware is a plus.

  • a supportive and collaborative team in which you can develop know-how and expertise in state-of-the-art technologies,
  • the opportunity to build up research and innovation skills that are essential for a future career in industrial as well as academic research and development environments,
  • support in the further development of your competences to analyze strategic research problems and to architect and evaluate innovative solutions with industrial applicability,
  • an international and multicultural working environment.
  • This position is open for junior and senior researchers, including Project Collaborators, PhD students and Post-docs. 
  • This research position can definitely lead to a PhD trajectory in computer science, but this is not a mandatory track for candidates interested to apply for this position.
