SnT is a leading international research and innovation centre in secure, reliable and trustworthy ICT systems and services.

We play an instrumental role in Luxembourg by fueling innovation through research partnerships with industry, boosting R&D investments leading to economic growth, and attracting highly qualified talent.

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).

  • Contribute to project deliverables, milestones, demonstrations, and meetings; disseminating results at international scientific conferences / workshops.
  • Conducting cutting-edge (joint and independent) research in Software Engineering and particularly in the area of Software Testing.
  • Development and maintenance of cooperation with national and international partners.
  • Publication of articles in international conferences and in peer-reviewed journals.
  • Your Profile

    We are looking for a talented and motivated PhD graduate who has :

  • A PhD in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Programming Languages or related disciplines.
  • Documented research expertise in the area of Software Engineering and particularly in Software Testing.
  • Strong programming and analytical skills.
  • Industrial experience in software testing will be considered an advantage.
  • Experience in research collaboration with industrial partners will be considered an advantage.
  • Fluent written and verbal communication skills in English are mandatory. Knowledge of French would be an advantage.
  • Publications in top tier conferences.
  • Commitment, affinity for working in a group, and a critical mind.
  • Here’s what awaits you at SnT

  • A stimulating learning environment. Here post-docs and professors outnumber PhD students. That translates into access and close collaborations with some of the brightest ICT researchers, giving you solid guidance
  • Exciting infrastructures and unique labs. At SnT’s two campuses, our researchers can take a walk on the moon at the LunaLab, build a nanosatellite, or help make autonomous vehicles even better
  • The right place for IMPACT. SnT researchers engage in demand-driven projects. Through our
