Funded PhD Studentships - Ireland

Software Product Line Engineering (Information/Software Visualisation) Lero, the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre has Funded PhD Studentships in the Software Product Lines research area at the University of Limerick.

Lero has been jointly established by the University of Limerick, Dublin City University, University College Dublin and Trinity College Dublin to advance the state of the art in Software Engineering in Ireland.

Lero is supported by Science Foundation Ireland under the CSET Centres for Science Engineering and Technology programme.

To strengthen its research in Software Product Line Engineering Lero is seeking productive and committed postgraduate researchers with an interest in exploring Information/Software Visualisation.

Software product line engineering has rapidly emerged as a viable and important software development activity during the last few years, especially in the automotive systems domain.

Research in this area particularly aims to reduce the complexity of variability management and to increase the efficiency for deriving products from the product line.

The candidate shall hold a Bachelors or Masters degree in Computer Science, with a specialisation in software engineering or related field.

The candidate should also have an interest in automotive embedded systems and in the practical application of visualisation methods, techniques and tools.
