The Department of Communication, Business and Information Technologies (CBIT) at Roskilde University invites applications for a PhD scholarship in Computer Science to be filled by 1 September 2013 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The scholarship will be jointly financed by CBIT and the ENTRA research project that started on 1 October 2012 funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework programme. The goal of the ENTRA project is to promote energy-aware system development, using advanced program analysis and energy modelling techniques to make predictions of energy usage available to the system developer. This will enable optimizations both during code development and at run-time and lead to more energy-efficient computer systems.

Applicants are expected to hold a Masters degree or equivalent in a relevant subject such as Computer Science, Computer Systems Engineering or Mathematics. Applications should include documentation of their studies demonstrating their aptitude for research. Information on the Masters dissertation or equivalent is especially relevant in this regard. Applicants should have a strong background in at least one of the following areas: programming languages, computer-aided verification, constraint programming, program analysis and transformation, energy-aware system development. Applications must include a detailed PhD project proposal.

For further information about the position, to get feedback on possible PhD project proposal or for more information on how to apply please see the Roskilde University web site.

We must receive your application on or before August 18, 2013.
