PhD student & Postdoc positions in Rigorous Systems Engineering, Austria (various places)


The RiSE project is a National Research Network funded by the Austrian National Science Foundation (FWF) on the topic of Rigorous Systems Engineering.

RiSE is concerned with improving
the quality of complex software systems.  It aims to move beyond classical, a posteriori verification techniques such as model checking, to an integrated approach of system design and formal verification.

RiSE is looking for several postdocs and PhD students in formal methods, systems engineering and related fields such as programming languages and distributed systems, to work on topics such as:
- design and verification of concurrent and real-time software;
- reactive synthesis and game theory;
- logical decision procedures.

RiSE will consider applications by graduates in computer science and related fields such as mathematics and computer engineering, with an excellent record.

RiSE offers a concentration of researchers in formal methods and systems engineering which is hard to find elsewhere.
RiSE brings together nine Austrian researchers as primary investigators:

Armin Biere - JKU Linz (
Roderick Bloem - TU Graz ( Krishnendu Chatterjee - IST Austria ( Uwe Egly - TU Wien ( Thomas A. Henzinger - IST Austria ( Christoph Kirsch - PLU Salzburg ( Laura Kovacs - TU Wien ( Ulrich Schmid - TU Wien ( Helmut Veith - TU Wien (

More information can be found at
