Subject: Research Assistants / Ph.D. Candidates @ SSS RWTH Aachen
Organization: SSS RWTH-Aachen

The Software for Systems on Silicon (SSS) group at the Institute for
Integrated Signal Processing Systems (ISS) of RWTH Aachen University has
two openings starting on Jan 1, 2006 for

                                    Research Assistants/Ph.D. Candidates

The SSS division performs research and development on electronic design
automation tools for embedded systems, e.g. future telecommunication and
multimedia systems. Major research areas include compilers for embedded
processors, architecture optimization for application specific
processors (ASIPs), and system-level design and simulation for
multi-processor system-on-chip (MPSoC) architectures. These activities
are performed in close cooperation with the teams of the Institute for
Integrated Signal Processing Systems (ISS) as well as several research
partners from academia and industry.

Your tasks:

            * Carry out R&D projects in close cooperation with our partners

            * Assist in teaching (lecture exercises, labs, seminars)

Our requirements:

            * Master degree or equivalent in electrical engineering/computer
                science/computer engineering with excellent results

            * Sound knowledge in C/C++ software tool development. Skills in
                the areas of processor architectures, compiler construction,
                and/or HW architecture simulation are beneficial.

            * Excellent communication skills, must be a team player

            * Good proficiency in oral and written English. German is

Our team-oriented working style and a cooperative leadership concept
will give you the necessary freedom for your scientific research with a
high degree of motivation, personal responsibility and creativity.

Compensation is based on BAT IIa (federal salary rate). Contract
duration is limited to 2 years first, extension is envisioned to
complete a Ph.D. thesis.

RWTH Aachen University aims at increasing the proportion of women among
the scientific staff and thus encourages qualified women to apply.

Handicapped applicants with the respective qualifications are favoured.

Subject: Positions in compositional QoS project at CWI, Amsterdam
Date: Sat, 19 Nov 2005 16:58:23 +0100 (CET)

                              Two Open Positions in the CooPer Project
                                                        CWI, Amsterdam
                                                      The Netherlands

Position Description

The Coordination and Component Based Software group in SEN3 at CWI
has two open positions for:

                (1) a postdoc for a period of three years, and
                (2) a PhD student for four years.

Both positions are within the research project "Coordination
with Performance Guarantees" (CooPer), recently funded by the
Dutch national science organization, NWO
under the GLANCE program

Researchers in the CooPer project plan to develop coordination models
and tools for specification and implementation of complex connectors
with Quality-of-Service (QoS) guarantees. This will allow modeling and
control of the end to end QoS of applications in large scale distributed
processing environments, based on a compositional model of QoS. The work
in CooPer involves: developing and validating quantitative models for the
basic connectors that constitute the atomic building blocks of complex
ones; developing a compositional QoS calculus that relates the relevant
performance metrics at the application layer, the connector layer,
and the basic connector layer; and using these models to develop and
implement QoS control mechanisms to efficiently react to observed QoS
degradation. This research spans over two separate groups within CWI:
SEN3 - Coordination Models and Languages in the department of Software
Engineering, and PNA2 - Advanced Communication Networks in the department
of Probability, Networks and Algorithms. The activities in CooPer involve
both systems oriented and theoretical work in software engineering,
supervised by Prof. Dr. F. Arbab (, as well as
quantitative performance modeling, supervised by Prof. Dr. R.D. van der
Mei ( The CooPer project complements the
theoretical and technological framework of other current projects within
these two groups.

The candidate for the postdoc position is expected to have a PhD in
computer science, with a strong background in component-based software
engineering, and maturity in formal methods and their practical
applications. Familiarity with performance analysis and quantitative
models of communication networks is preferred, but not required.
Project management skills, teamwork and leadership, as well as the
ability to work effectively with academic colleagues and PhD students,
are all important qualifications for this position.

The candidate for the PhD position should have at least a master
degree in computer science, with a background in component-based
software engineering, concurrency and distributed systems, and practical
software development.

The Theme SEN3 ( at CWI is a dynamic group of
internationally recognized researchers who work on Coordination Models
and Languages and Component-Based Software Composition. The activity
in SEN3 is a productive, healthy mix of theoretical, foundational, and
experimental work in Computer Science, ranging in a spectrum covering
mathematical foundations of models of computation, formal methods and
semantics, implementation of advanced research software systems, as well
as their real-life applications.

General information

CWI is an internationally renowned research institute in mathematics
and computer science, located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The focus
is on fundamental research problems, derived from societal needs.
Research is carried out in 15 research themes. More information about
these themes can be found on the website where you can also
take a look at our Annual Report. A substantial part of this research
is carried out in the framework of national or international programs.
CWI maintains excellent relations with industry and the academic world,
at home as well as abroad. After their research careers at CWI,
an increasing number of young staff members find employment in these
sectors, for example in spin-off companies that are based on research
results from CWI. Of course, library and computing facilities are
first-rate. CWI's non-scientific services to its personnel include
career planning, training & courses, assistance in finding housing,
and tailor-made solutions to problems that may occasionally arise.

Terms of employment

The salary is in accordance with the "CAO-onderzoekinstellingen" and is
commensurate with experience. For instance, the postdoc base salary for
a fresh PhD with no additional experience in scale 10 is around 2800
Euros/month, and for an experienced PhD in scale 12 it is around 4500
Euros/month. The current starting salary for a first year PhD student
is around 1800 Euros/month with an incremental raise for each subsequent
year. Besides the salary, CWI offers very attractive and flexible terms
of employment, like a collective health insurance, pension-fund, etc.


To apply, please send a statement of your interest, together with
curriculum vitae, letters of references, and lists of publications to:

    Prof. F. Arbab, telephone +31-20-592-4056, e-mail

making sure that you specifically mention the CooPer project.
