A post-doctoral research position is available with the Pleiad Lab (University of Chile) and the RMoD Group (INRIA Lille Nord Europe). The position is scheduled to start in September 2011, but earlier dates are possible.
The position is targeted for research on software maintenance and software visualization. Validation of research hypotheses will be carried out using the Pharo programming language. Experience with it, or any other Smalltalk dialect, is a plus (but not necessary).
The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to develop independent research initiatives within the scope of the position, design and contribute to the research experiments conducted by Pleiad and RMoD. There is no teaching duty associated with this position.
Both Pleiad and RMoD offer a creative, productive and multicultural staff and students, with many collaboration opportunities. Pleiad and RMoD have an extensive expertise and an advanced infrastructure related to software analysis, data mining, testing, meta-modeling and language semantics.
The position is funded by INRIA for a period of 12 or 18 months. In order to foster the collaboration between France and Chili, the candidate will have to share his time between Lille, France and Santiago, Chile.
The candidate must hold a PhD in computer science.
