The goal of this project is to develop and evaluate machine-learning campaigns as well as big data architectures that continuously analyze software-defined infrastructures, their qualities, code smells, qualities as well as runtime adaptation possibilities in the scope of DevOps continuous evolution. The PhD student will explore state-of-the-art machine-learning approaches and develop prototypes for the afore-mentioned analysis in the context of sound Empirical Software Engineering research.
The to-be-developed approaches and algorithms will contribute to high-relevance/high-impact research in the context of two EU H2020 Projects focused on the afore-mentioned topics and most notably, serverless computing.
The applications will also be developed by industrial commercial partners in the scope of the afore-mentioned H2020 actions and will include additional functionality providing the user with further industrial data and information from the value-generating industrial context.
The project is a collaboration of the Jheronimus Academy of Data Science (JADS), 's-Hertogenbosch (campus Mariënburg), Tilburg University (TiU), Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the commercial, industrial and academic partners part of the actions above.
The research will be conducted under supervision of prof.dr. Willem-Jan van den Heuvel and dr. Damian A. Tamburri. The students are expected to deliver both long-term results (understanding of machine learning in quality evaluation of software-defined infrastructures) and mid-term results (algorithms, approaches, high-impact/high-relevance papers, and best practices).
The successful candidate is expected to:
Participate in activities of the group, mainly in 's-Hertogenbosch but sometimes also in Eindhoven or Tilburg or at one of the commercial partners in several locations in Europe.
The PhD student will be employed at Tilburg - or Eindhoven University.
Candidates are asked to provide a motivation letter and a detailed CV.
For more information about the project, please ask your question in the motivation letter.
You can apply via the apply now button on this page. Mind that you will be redirected to the website of the Tilburg University. Applications done via the website of the Eindhoven University cannot be taken into consideration.
The vacancies will be open until we have found suitable candidates for both positions! If you are an interesting candidate we will invite you for an interview to assess whether we can be off value to each other.
