PhD position: Formal methods in control (Munich, Germany)

We invite applications for a doctoral researcher position in the
field of formal methods in control. The successful candidate is
expected to advance theory of as well as computational methods for
abstraction-based controller synthesis, to a degree that facilitates
routine, fully automated, practical application of the approach to
nonlinear continuous-state plants and complex specifications. The
focus is on synthesis algorithms that are both efficient and formally

The project involves theoretical work, algorithm and software
development, and, on a small scale, experimental work. There is no
teaching requirement and no coursework to be completed. Competitive
salary is offered according to the tariff ``TVOeD Bund, E 13''.

Required qualifications:
* MSc degree (or equivalent, giving access to doctoral studies) in
  Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, or a related
  field. Students about to complete their MSc will also be considered.
* Excellent academic record, showing a strong theoretical/mathematical
  background and a strong interest in dynamical systems.
* Proficiency in programming (C or Ada/SPARK).
* Excellent communication skills in English (CEFR level C1).

In addition, experience in one of the following fields would be a
plus: Set-valued or validated numerics; dynamic programming;
formal methods in control; reactive synthesis; 
professional-grade software development.

Your complete application consists of the following documents, which
should be sent as a single PDF file to the email address given below
(deadline: Feb 15, 2017):

* CV with photo
* One-page cover letter (clearly indicating available start date as
  well as relevant qualifications, experience and motivation)
* University certificates and transcripts (both BSc and MSc degrees)
* Contact details of up to three referees
* Possibly an English language certificate and a list of publications

All documents should be in English, with the exception of university
certificates and transcripts, which may also be in German. The
position is open to applicants worldwide; no special security
clearance necessary.
