I am currently recruiting 2-3 new PhD candidates working in Enterprise Systems. I have particular projects related to Model-Driven Engineering (MDE), agile methods, domain-specific languages, model transformation, simulation and scalability.
You need to have a good first degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Software Engineering. You should have strong object-oriented design and development skills, an independent streak, good ideas of your own, and the desire to work in a world-class research group. You also need to be able to demonstrate accomplishment: what have you done in the past? What have you completed? This might be a project that you have finished, software that you have built, a paper that you've had published, etc. We want people who take pride in accomplishing things, and want to do more!
You will be working with a world-class team of researchers in the fields of Model-Driven Engineering, Enterprise Systems and Cloud Computing. In 2014, our research group had the highest number of accepted papers in the leading international conference in MDE (ACM/IEEE International Conference on Model-Driven Engineering, Languages and Systems). We are currently leading several of the largest MDE and modelling projects in Europe, as well as the development of one of the most widely adopted open-source MDE platforms, Epsilon, which is used in organisations and companies such as NASA, BAE Systems, IBM, Thales and Siemens.
