What will you be doing?
You will form part of a small team within a public / private funded industrial research project. This project focuses on system-wide understanding of the impact of legacy software components behaviour by relearning their interfaces.
This should result in better (formalized) interface contracts which can be utilized in various ways to reduce the overall complexity of the software architecture and its development.
Your major role will be to contribute to the development of practical model inference methodologies which aim at inter-component behavioural aspects.
You have a strong affinity with formal methods and data analytics, in particular in areas of model learning such as active automata learning, process mining, and state machine learning.
Next to that, you have proven track record on applying the latest state-of-the-art methods and tools on model learning. By closely cooperating with customers and your colleagues, you will build on the already developed methods developed within ESI (TNO) group.
The targeted model-inference principles will be applicable to industrial cases of ESI (TNO) partners, who act in diverse domains.
You will share your experiences and knowledge with industrial partners, present gained insights and, whenever relevant, publish results at scientific conferences.
Your future responsibilities include coordination with other professionals, such as PhD students and industrial engineers, guiding them successfully through their innovation challenges.
What do we require of you?
You have experience in software behaviour and supervisory control principles. You are eager to further develop, apply, and bring those into mainstream use as part of software architecture methodologies.
To obtain the required results, you may regularly work at the premises of the customer throughout The Netherlands.
What can you expect of your work situation?
