Centre for Software Research and Innovation

Faculty of Computer and Information Science

Southwest University, Chongqing, China

 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southwest_University

 

Southwest University is building a research intensive centre for Software Research and Innovation.  The Centre is searching for Five Research Fellows.  The Centre is to be led by Professor Zhiming Liu (http://www.bcu.ac.uk/zhiming-liu), who was recently appointed under the National Recruitment Programme of Thousands of Experts.

 

The successful candidates will be part of the Centre and conduct independent and/or supervised research related to the core areas of the Centre, including theories, techniques and tools of software modeling, design, validation and verification, as well as their applications.

 

A successful candidate should a have a PhD in Software Engineering or Computer Science with interest in one or more of the following topics:

 

·         Theories of programming and programming languages

·         Techniques and tools for modelling, analysis, simulation validation and verification

·         Application of the above mentioned theories, techniques and tools in the areas of Healthcare, Environment Management, Networked Critical Infrastructures, ICT in Agriculture and Modern Workflow and Products Management.

 

In addition the candidates are expected to show excellent verbal and written communication skills and also a good track record of publications in international journals and conferences.

 

Along with these five appointments, the Centre is also recruiting three researchers at the level of professor/associate professor. The appointed research fellows will work closely with each other and with the professors/associate professors, and should therefore be proficient at working in a team.

 

The posts are contract based and carry competitive annual salaries in the range of 100,000 – 300,000 RMB. In addition, the Centre will provide good staff development opportunities, including funding for research visits to designated collaboration partners abroad.

 

To apply, please include along with your cover letter a personal statement on your research plan and how you wish the research profile of the Centre to be developed, a CV listing your publications and copies of up to five selected publications; and names and contact details of two referees.  The application, as well as informal enquires, should be sent to

 

·         Professor Zhiming Liu, zhiming.liu88@gmail.com, +44 1509 265669 (home), +44 77043 52728 (mobile).

·         Professor Zili Zhang,  zhangzl@swu.edu.cn, telephones: +86-23-68367746, +86-13983873999 (mobile).

 

 

The positions are open now and will remain open until they are filled in.

 

 

The Centre for Software

 

The Centre for Software Research and Innovation (SRIC) at Southwest University[1] is planned as a center for intensive research and technology innovation in the area of software engineering. It will work in the area of both empirical and formal software engineering, and the combination of the two. Interdisciplinary research is encouraged. The research will strive to further a strong interplay between theories of software and engineering practice. It conducts teaching and knowledge transfer activities to enhance the impact of its research findings. The general themes of research and innovation at the Centre cover:

 

·         Theories, techniques and tools of software requirements, specification, modelling, analysis, design, testing, and verification.

·         New modeling and programming paradigms and languages, including object-oriented component-based, and service-based programming, evolutionary digital ecosystems (IoT and Smart Cities) and cyber-physical component systems.

·         Knowledge based and deep learning based engineering.

·         The applications of the above researched methods to real world problems in trustworthy computing system development.

 

The technology transfer aims at solving pressing problems in areas like healthcare, environment management, disaster management, maintenance of networked critical infrastructures, modern workflow and products management, and ICT in agriculture. These applications share common or similar evolving “systems of systems architectures” with cyber-components managing big data, transmitting information, and controlling and coordinating physical components. They all contain components with dependability requirements of safety, security, real-time and fault-tolerance. The research supporting these application areas is thus multidisciplinary, needing collaboration with experts in database system and big data, communication and networks, and domain experts.

 

The Centre will play an important role in consolidating and collaborating with other groups and centres at Southwest University, as well as with research centres and companies inside and outside China.

 

The Centre has strong supports from the central government and municipality government of Chongqing, as well as the University and the Faculty. In particular, we have a seed funding of 10 million RMB for the first five years and a comfortable 100 square metres of lab space.  The Centre will also enjoy a wide network of active national and international collaborations.
