| HATS: Highly Adaptable and Trustworthy Software using Formal Models |

HATS is a new Integrated Project funded by the European Union, within the
programme "Future and Emerging Technologies" (FET) of the 7th Framework
Programme (subject to contract) starting March 2009.

The project partners from
    Chalmers Technical University, Gothenborg, Sweden
    University of Oslo, Norway
    Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
    Technical University of Madrid, Spain
    IMDEA Software, Spain       
    Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany,
    University of Bologna, Italy,
    Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica (CWI), Amsterdam, Netherlands
    Norwegian Computer Center, Oslo, Norway
    Fredhopper B.V., Amsterdam, Netherlands
    Fraunhofer Institute for Experimental SE, Kaiserslautern, Germany,
    Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium
are jointly advertising several 3-5 year PhD, PostDoc, and Engineering

The goal of HATS is a tool-supported framework and formal methodology
for the development of long-lived and trustworthy software systems.
Specifically, HATS will turn software product family (SWPF) development
into a rigorous approach. The technical core of the project is an Abstract
Behavioral Specification language which will allow precise description
of SWPF features and components and their instances. For further
information see:


Topic areas: Applicants should have a background and/or interest in
one of the topics software modeling, modeling and programming
languages, formal methods, verification, language-based security, type
systems, or concurrency theory.

The following positions are offered:

* 2 PhD positions with emphasis on formal modeling and verification at
   Chalmers University of Technology. One of the positions is in the EU
   project CHARTER which is closely related to HATS. Application
   deadline is 9th February 2009. Contact: Prof. Reiner Haehnle. Further
   details and information on how to apply at

* A Research Software Engineer at Fredhopper (Amsterdam).
   The position will comprise of industrial research on modeling and
   verification of key components of Fredhopper's flagship product
   within HATS.  Fredhopper is the Nr. 1 provider of Search &
   Merchandising solutions for online business in Europe and industrial
   leader in the HATS project.  Apply by 31 January 2009 for the most
   optimal procedure.  Contact for project information: Dr. Nikolay
   Diakov.  More information and how to apply at:

* 2 PostDoc positions at the University of Bologna.  The emphasis is
   on  formal modeling and verification of
   the kind of concurrent systems studied
   in Hats using various techniques, including
   behavioural techniques and type systems.
   Application deadline is 31 January
   (later applications may also be taken into
   account).   Contact: Prof. Davide Sangiorgi, see:

* 3 PhD positions with emphasis on static analysis and security at the
   Technical University of Madrid/IMDEA Software. One of the positions
   is in the DOVES Spanish project, which is closely related to
   HATS. The application deadline is 25 January. Later applications may
   also be taken into account if the positions are not
   covered. Contact: Prof. German Puebla. Further details and
   information on how to apply at

* 1 PhD and 1 PostDoc position in the area of software modeling and
   verification at the University of Kaiserslautern. The emphasis in
   the area of software modeling is on semantically founded integration
   of behavioral software models, feature-based descriptions of variability
   and programs. The emphasis in verification is on modular techniques for
   object-oriented models and model refinement. Application deadline
   is January 31. Later applications may also be taken into account.
   Contact: Prof. A. Poetzsch-Heffter. Further details and information
   on how to apply at 

* Further positions will be announced at this space!

Applicants should have (or expect to have at the start of employment):

* For a PhD position: a good Masters level or excellent Bachelor level
   degree (or equivalent) in computer science, mathematics, or a
   closely related discipline with knowledge in the areas above. Please
   see also individual requirements at each site which can differ.

* For a Postdoc position: a PhD in computer science or mathematics,
   preferably with research experience in one of the listed topic

* For a software engineer position: a Masters or PhD level level degree
   (or equivalent) in computer science, mathematics, or a closely
   related discipline with good knowledge in the areas of program
   verification, automata theory or discrete math. Knowledge of Java
   and some programming experience count as a plus.

Regardless of the specific application instructions, each
application should contain:

1) a full CV including letters of recommendation
2) a research statement, indicating the research directions you are
    interesting in and what relevant experience you have
