PhD research fellowship position NTNU, Norway

PhD research fellowship position in “Model-Driven Service Engineering” at
Department of Telematics, NTNU, Norway
A PhD research fellowship position is offered within the area of Networked Systems at the Department
of Telematics in the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering
(IME), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The Department of Telematics
has 3 research areas: (1) Networked Systems, (2) Networks, and (3) Information Security.

Excellence (Q2S, www.q2s.ntnu.no), National research programs, EU Network of Excellences
(ePhoton/ONe, Euro-NGI) and EU research projects (SPICE, SIMS).
The research focus of this PhD fellowship position is on methods and tools for high level service
modeling and automated transformation to executable realizations. Network based services in the
future are expected to have a rich content, to be personalized and to be adaptable to different usage
situations. Rapid and modular development as well as delivery over highly heterogeneous and dynamic
platforms will be needed. Central research questions are how collaboration-oriented models can be
used to specify services in a compositional way and how such models can be refined into detailed
design models suitable for automatic translation to executable code. Methods and tools shall be
developed to support this.
