PhD position in Software Engineering (1.0 fte)
The Software Engineering & Architecture group at the University of Groningen is committed to advancing the state of the art in the field of software architecture. The group aims to achieve that by carrying out joint research projects with universities, research institutes, and industrial partners, thus combining academic know-how with industrial practice. The research group's core business is software architecture, with strong emphasis on architecture modeling, knowledge, evolution, patterns and technical debt.

The PhD position will be part of an H2020 project entitled SDK4ED - Software Development toolKit for Energy optimization and technical Debt elimination. The vision of SDK4ED is to minimize cost, time and complexity of low-energy software development processes, by providing tools for automatic optimization of both software quality and non-functional requirements such as energy efficiency, dependability and performance, with the capacity to tackle the interplay between design quality and run-time constraints. Through its envisaged toolbox, SDK4ED will comprise a set of software programming add-ons for preventing the degradation of run-time qualities and especially energy consumption, while allowing for efficient measuring of the accumulated Technical Debt during the development of new low-energy computing software applications, including embedded systems and IoT products.
