Department of Computing Science
The project addresses the increasingly important problem of software bloat, i.e. the fact that software, throughout the whole software stack, is rapidly growing in size with consequences such as substantially increased resource consumption, reduced performance, and increased vulnerability for security threats. The position is within the
Department of Computing Science, the Distributed Systems group, at Umeå University.
The appointment is for 2 years full-time employment. Applications should be received by February 25. The employment will start on April 1, 2019, or as otherwise agreed.
Applicants must have a PhD degree, not more than three years old.
The candidate should have a strong background in at least two of the following areas: cloud systems software, static and dynamic program analysis, compiler techniques and optimization, operating systems, programming languages, and resource management.
