Current Opportunities with the Software Technology Research Group

Postdoctoral Researcher - 2017

A one-year postdoctoral research position in software engineering and distributed systems under the co-supervision of Profs. Martin Robillard, Bettina Kemme and Shane McIntosh is available at McGill University. The position is nominally scheduled to start in September 2017. The position may be renewable for one year depending on the availability of funds.

The position is targeted for research on techniques and tools to support the development of cloud computing applications and involves collaboration with a prominent industry partner in Montréal.

The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to develop research initiatives within the scope of the position, design and implement novel analysis techniques, conduct experiments, and assist in developing further collaboration projects with industry. The work may involve the supervision of undergraduate research trainees. There is no teaching duty associated with this position.

Applicants should have defended or soon expect a Ph.D. in computer science or related discipline, one or more high-quality publication(s) in software engineering venues, and expertise in systems-oriented software engineering research. Candidates who do not already hold their Ph.D. must have defended their thesis at the start of the position.

Compensation will be comparable to that of competitive postdoctoral fellowships offered in Canada. McGill University is an English-language institution located in the beautiful and vibrant center of Montréal, close to all amenities and affordable housing.

Applicants should email a curriculum vitae, a list of at least three referees with full coordinates, and a short cover page explaining their research interests and goals, to: Prof. Martin Robillard with the subject "2017 SE Postdoc Application". The publication list should include at most five of the candidate's papers. Applications received by July 1st will get priority.
