We’re looking for people driven by excellence, excited about innovation, and looking to make a difference. If this sounds like you, you’ve come to the right place!

Your Role...

The UNITE project (UNified framework of faulT identification) aims at integrating the prediction and localization of faults in a continuously evolving software system as pre- and post-fault identification activities. The project involves analyzing the co-evolution of code elements and tests, leveraging these co-evolutionary relationships as a bridge between past and present fault identification activities to construct a unified fault identification framework. The candidate of this project will actively contribute to implementing and integrating this unified framework for fault identification within a continuously evolving system.

Beside conducting high-quality research, the candidate will:

  • Carry out the research specified by the UNITE project (such as creating a new benchmark of co-evolution of test and code, developing the framework, conducting the service simulation and user study)
  • Contribute to project deliverables, milestones, demonstrations, and meetings
  • Disseminate results through scientific publications, especially in software debugging and maintenance
  • Expected to contribute to different projects at SnT, coordinating technical contributions or preparing project deliverables
  • Provide assistance for PhD students

The candidate should demonstrate interest in the following publication outlets:

  • High-ranked journals such as the Transactions on Software Engineering and Empirical Software Engineering
  • High-ranked SE conferences such as ICSE and ESEC/FSE
