Postdoctoral positions in stochastic model checking, Rennes (France)


Postdoc (s) in stochastic model checking at INRIA Rennes.
--------------------------------------------------------

Subject 1: The objective of the position is to develop new techniques to reason on Systems of 
Systems. The main task of the postdoc will be to propose new specification languages for such 
systems as well as new statistical model checking techniques for verifying their properties.

Subject 2: The objective of the position is to develop new statistical model checking algorithms 
for planning and devices for assisted living.

Both positions are funded by two new EU projects and take place in a large effort of INRIA to 
develop new statistical model checking techniques/tools for the design of large size systems 
(other projects are already funding 4 researchers working full time on the topic). In addition to 
working on the projects' topics, the postdoc s will also interact with other researchers in the 
institute and are encouraged to investigate additional research topics.

Profile: Applicants should have a doctoral degree in computer science and a strong background in 
mathematics (statistics, probability theory). 
Candidates should also be familiar with probabilistic/statistical model checking, compositional 
reasoning, performance analysis, and timed systems. Excellent programming skills are a plus.

Positions: Both positions are available starting January 2012 for a maximal duration of 24 months.

How to apply: Send a CV (with academic background, list of publications, and contact references) 
and a motivation letter to Axel.Legay@inria.fr
