Positions open at ETH in concurrency and verification

We have positions open at both the PhD and Postdoc levels at the Chair of Software Engineering at ETH Zurich, the Chair of Software Engineering. As noted in an earlier article, I recently
received an Advanced Investigator Grant from the European Research Council (5 years, 2.5 million euros) on the theme “Concurrency Made Easy”; see [1] for the project description. We are also recruiting for our effort of building an advanced verification environment around Eiffel (EVE, Eiffel Verification Environment), under the slogan “Verification As a Matter of Course”; see e.g. the slides at [2], although the details are no longer up to date.


  • Excellent background in verification.
  • For the concurrency project, excellent background in concurrency.
  • Good publications on relevant topics (particularly for the postdoc positions).
  • Excellent mastery of object-oriented programming, including Eiffel concepts & Design by Contract.
  • Mix of theoretical and practical (software development) talents.
  • Passion for research and determination to advance the state of software engineering.

Please send a CV to this address; also include a position statement describing (briefly, half a page to two pages) on what topics you would like to work and what you think you can contribute. Obviously you should take some time to become familiar with our work , starting from the research pages at [3].
