Software Engineering for Cloud - Belgium  

KU Leuven (company)


Posted on : 18 May 2017

Project Description

The cloud is fundamentally changing the ways in which we design, develop, deploy, maintain, and test software in many challenging ways. We currently focus on a number of related research challenges, including:
  • Continuous development, continuous integration, continuous evolution
  • Run-time customization (e.g. per-tenant) of cloud applications
  • Monitoring cloud applications
  • Dynamic (re-)deployment (e.g. in hybrid clouds or cloud federations)
  • Policy-driven middleware (e.g. tenant SLA, storage policies, ... )
  • Testing in production environments (e.g. automated AB testing, regression detection, ..)
  • Dynamic software product lines

If you share our strong interest in software engineering and cloud systems, 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,

  • 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.
