Openings for Visiting Students in the National Engineering Research Center of Fundamental Software at Institute of Software Chinese Academy of Sciences (ISCAS)


Position #1

Hosting Department/Research Group:
Empirical Software Engineering Group at the Lab for Internet Software Technologies

Position Description:
    The goal of this group is to develop and apply empirical methods to analyze practical problems associated with software process improvement, cost estimation, and software measurement. Visiting students to fill this position will be asked to perform certain research tasks in mining software project data, helping to develop process patterns and cost estimation relationships using local industrial data.
    The position is a full-time position. The visiting students will have much interaction with the faculty members and other students and the freedom to explore many possibilities within the overall scheme of the center. Expected outputs of the position (and the whole group) would be research papers and prototype tools that may have potential for commercialization.
    Successful applicants will be provided a monthly salary of 5000 RMB during the visit period, which should be sufficient to cover the monthly expense for a comfortable living condition in Beijing. Housing facilities at ISCAS is also possible. Besides, this position also includes the reimbursement for your round-trip economy class flight tickets, with the total amount not exceeding 10,000RMB.

Duration of Appointment:
Six months to one year.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree and above
  • Hard working
  • Strong academic records, programming skills, research abilities, communication skills, abilities to transfer skills among different areas

Application Documents:

  • CV, transcripts, personal and research statements, and two reference letters
  • Other documents as required by the hosting faculty members

Deadline:
available now until the position is filled.

Position #3

Hosting Department/Research Group:
Software Process Modeling Group at the Lab for Internet Software Technologies

Position Description:
    The goal of this group is to develop methods related to representation, instantiation, simulation and enactment of software processes. Visiting students to fill this position will be asked to perform certain research tasks in the following topics:

  • Modeling of software processes with formal methods to avoid ambiguities and inconsistencies in non-formal ones and lay a foundation for the analysis and execution of process models.

  • pModeling of the capabilities of organization entities based on the autonomous and inferring mechanism of agents to increase the flexibility and intelligence of software process models.

  • Automatic and optimized resource scheduling for given tasks and resources.

  • Simulation of instantiated software process models with stochastic process algebras and discrete event simulation to discover the dynamics of software processes.

  • Mining process models from various kinds of execution logs to learn how a defined process model is implemented
