Applications are invited for an EPSRC PhD studentship in the Department of Computing (http://www.comp.lancs.ac.uk), Lancaster University, starting as soon as possible.
The successful candidate will work under the supervision of Prof. Jon Whittle in the area of model-driven software development, although other areas of software engineering will be considered.
Software continues to grow in complexity, both in terms of the number of lines of code in a typical application and in terms of the number of interacting technologies required for implementation. One way of managing this complexity is to raise the abstraction level of software development. This is the approach followed in model-driven software development (MDD), wherein models, or abstractions, of software are the primary artifacts of development. A studentship is available in any aspect of MDD, including, but not limited to: bringing the benefits of MDD to early phases of the software development lifecycle, verification and validation of model transformations, model management and model composition, executable models, domain-specific modeling.
