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 SATOCROSS project (Support of Advanced Test cOverage Criteria for RObust and Secure Software) aims at improving software testing practice by bridging the gap between the potentialities offered by the huge body of academic work on (code-)coverage criteria on one side, and their limited tool support and use in the industry on the other side. The consortium includes two academic partners: CEA List (CEA) and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) of Univ. of Luxembourg (UL), and one industrial partner MERCE (Mitsubishi Electric). The partners will design generic and efficient testing techniques and tools for all major testing services: test input generation, detecting polluting test objectives and test assessment. They will focus on a large class of criteria important for the industrial practice. A particular attention will be paid to the continuous development paradigm. The project will feature these tools in an integrated open-source toolkit that will be evaluated on real-life industrial code provided by the industrial partner. Finally, the project will establish industrial application guidelines that will allow practitioners to benefit from the project results. Besides conducting high-quality research, the candidate will: Carry out the research work specified by the SATOCROSS project (such as collaborating with our partners, conducting literature surveys and establishing state-of-the-art; developing necessary experimental and simulation facilities where required; planning, executing, and analyzing experiments and simulations).
