Full-time funded PhD and PostDoc positions available in the FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network
Added on 01/03/2011

RELATE is a trans-European research training network providing an opportunity for researchers in early stages of their careers to study the latest technologies, platforms and tools in the area of engineering and provisioning of service-based cloud applications. It is a Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) sponsored by the European Commission under Framework Programme 7.

The ITN consists of 7 full members (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, CAS Software AG, South-East European Research Centre, Universite de Rennes 1, King’s College London, Charles University Prague, and SingularLogic SA) and 5 associated partners (YellowMap AG, Forschungszentrum Informatik Karlsruhe, SAP AG, National Technical University of Athens, University of Mannheim).

A total of 21 fellows will be recruited by the RELATE consortium: 18 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) - PhD candidates, and 3 Experienced Researchers (ERs) - PostDoc fellows. The ITN will organize regular workshops and summer schools, so that the trained ESRs and ERs can exchange research experiences, insights and ideas.

Through an integrative and multidisciplinary research approach, RELATE will promote the advancement of the state-of-the-art in the related areas of model-driven engineering and formal methods, service-based mash-ups and application integration, dependability, performance and trust in service-based cloud applications, as well as quality management and business model innovation.

Open Positions

The RELATE consortium is seeking to recruit Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and Experienced Researchers (ERs) under employment contracts with full social security coverage, with living allowance and maximum duration of employment 3 years for ESRs and 2 years for ERs. In accordance with EU gender policy, the candidacy of women is strongly encouraged.

All recruited researchers are Marie Curie fellows and will profit from all Marie Curie benefits, including travel, living, mobility and career exploratory allowances. We offer a unique, integrative research environment where world-leading scientists will integrate accepted applicants into their research teams. Beyond technical training in key areas, personal development and research management training will be made available.

Relevant Background

Relevant backgrounds include software architecture, service-oriented systems, web services, service mash-ups, model-driven software development, software quality prediction, programming in Java and Eclipse. The ideal candidate combines skills from several of these disciplines.
