PhD student positions in "foundations of cyber-physical systems", DENMARK

Aalborg (Denmark)

CISS, Aalborg,  Denmark - Several PhD positions ================================================

The IDEA4CPS center ( is a newly established Danish-Chinese basic research center 
on the foundations of cyber-physical systems. The center will research and develop mathematically 
well-founded and coherent models, methods, and tools that may serve as the foundation of a 
model-driven design methodology for cyber-physical systems. In order to pursue this goal, we seek 
several PhD applicants within the following research themes:

? Specification and modeling formalisms with special focus on resource-aware formalisms.

? Validation and analysis techniques with special emphasis on e.g. 
refinement and abstraction, quantitative analysis or model based testing and model learning.

? Compositionality with emphasis on components and interfaces for resources.

The ideal applicants have both a theoretical background as well as an interest in exploiting the 
results into algorithms, tools, and applications on selected industrial cases.

The center is a joint initiative funded by basic research organizations in Denmark and China, and 
it involves two partners in each country. This means that international collaboration will be a 
major theme of the research within the center.

Interested candidates may send further questions and a short statement of research interests 
(possibly with a short CV) to the Danish Principal Investigator Kim Guldstrand Larsen 
( or work package leader Arne Skou ( before November 15, 2011.
