Postdoc Fellowships at The Swedish National Strategic Research Centre on Embedded Software (PROGRESS), Malardalen University, Sweden.

One Year Post Doctoral Research Fellowships
The Swedish National Strategic Research Centre on Embedded Software PROGRESS

Mälardalen University is an expansive university with a strong focus on engineering, and the School of Innovation, Design and Engineering is a research intensive environment with strong focus on Embedded systems, Real-time systems and Software Engineering.

The Swedish national strategic research centre on embedded software PROGRESS, hosted by Mälardalen University in Västerås, Sweden, is offering excellent career opportunities for top-talents by providing 8 one year post doctoral research fellowships with possible extension to two years

Earliest starting date: September 1st 2009.

Deadline for submissions:
June 30, 2009 (cut-off date; submissions received after that date are welcome and will be considered as long as there are fellowships available).

Required qualifications:
PhD in Computer Science, Software Engineering, or Computer Engineering (or equivalent) and proven research excellence in at least one of the areas listed below.

Application: Submit your application electronically at www.mrtc.mdh.se/progress/postdoc09/

Research areas:

Prospective candidates should have a proven track record related to one of the following research directions:

Component Model:
This research direction has the main responsibility for developing ProCom, the component model to which all PROGRESS activities are linked.

Formal Modelling and Analysis:
This research direction works in the area of formal models, analysis techniques, and tools for verification of embedded systems.

Timing Analysis:
This research direction deals with code-level timing analysis techniques for components and component-based systems, mainly Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) analysis.

This research direction focuses on techniques for analyzing and ensuring dependability of component based real-time systems.

This research direction provides mappings and translations from the software design to executing code on particular target platforms.

Development Environment and Process:
This research direction provides a tool infrastructure with a set of basic tools and support for integration of other tools (provided by PROGRESS or externally), as well as guidelines for component-based development processes, and techniques for integrating such development in existing processes.

Componentization of Legacy:
This research direction provides methods and techniques that assist in integrating legacy code in the component-based development, as well as providing faithful execution of legacy code in a component-based setting.

Legacy Property Prediction:
This research direction focuses on existing industrial “legacy” systems, with the purpose of providing timing and resource usage information necessary for componentization of legacy code.

PhD Position in Nano-Optics With a Focus on Biosensor Development, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

Reference number: 2009/84

Application deadline: 2009-06-30

The last decade has witnessed a rapid development in the area of nano-optics. Using metallic nanostructures, it is now possible to dramatically enhance light matter interactions at the nanoscale using so-called surface plasmon resonances. The structures can, for example, be used as nanoscopic biological sensors for medical diagnostics, but there are probably many more novel applications laying ahead, for example in areas such as metamaterials, solar cells and cancer treatment.

The Division of Bionanophotonics at the Department of Applied Physics, now seeks two new doctoral students in nanooptics.

Job description:

This position focuses on development of biosensors based on gold and silver nanostructures. Of particular interest is the possibility to design the particles resonance wavelength through nanolithography and the possibility to specify their interaction with biological structures using surface functionalization.

Direct recruitment will be applied. Send in your application as soon as possible.

The project is conducted in a network that involves several national and international collaborations. The position is financed through Vinnova, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF), the Swedish Research Council (VR) and Göran Gustafssons Foundation.


We seek creative and independent candidates with documented analytical capacity, excellent language skills and a particular interest for optical spectroscopy and microscopy.

A suitable background is Master of Science in photonics or engineering physics.

Application procedure:

The application shall be written in English and include the following items:

1. An application of a maximum of one A4 page containing your specific qualifications for the position.
2. Attested copies of education certificates, including grade reports and other documents.
3. Curriculum Vitae.
4. Letters of recommendation and name of reference persons (optional).

The application shall be sent electronically as pdf or zipped documents.

If any material is not available electronically or cannot be transferred to pdf format, the material can be sent as a hard copy to Registrar. The applicants name and the reference number (2009/84) must be written on the first page of the application.

Chalmers University of Technology
SE-412 96 Göteborg

Further information:

The goal with a PhD-position is to develop general research proficiency and a high competence within your specific research area. As a PhD-student, you will primarily conduct research, often together with other researchers and PhD-students. You will also follow PhD courses, be involved in teaching activities, and participate in international conferences and networks. You are expected to write a licenciate thesis within 2-3 years and defend your doctoral thesis within 4-5 years.

In order to improve the gender balance at the Department, we welcome in particular applications from female candidates.

Further information about the research conducted in the group can be found on our homepage: http://www.chalmers....ionanophotonics or by contacting Prof. Mikael Käll, kall@chalmers.se
