Position available: WALA developer

I am currently seeking the assistance of a developer(s) with WALA expertise to help fix several WALA bugs that would greatly improve the progress of our current research project. Compensation is negotiable. There is also a possibility to participate in the research project once the bugs have been fixed. We will also encourage the engineer to integrate the bug fixes into the main WALA branch. Please, direct inquiries to the PI, Raffi Khatchadourian.

Graduate Research Assistant Positions in Programming Languages and Software Engineering

Graduate Research Assistant Position in Programming Languages and Software Engineering


I am currently seeking a graduate student interested in programming languages and software engineering research to commence at the Fall 2018 semester. Potential research topics include (static/dynamic) program analysis and/or transformation (e.g., refactoring) with a focus on helping to maintain and/or evolve large and complex existing software systems. Potential topics also include automated bug finding approaches and software security w.r.t. software evolution and/or component composition. The successful candidate will be expected to work on projects that normally yield open source developer tool research prototypes, typically plug-ins to popular IDEs, build systems, or static analyzers. More information can be found on the main supervisor’s webpage.

Of particular interest are students interested in applying to the City University of New York – CUNY’s Graduate Center Ph.D. program in Computer Science concurrently with the research assistantship.

Please see below for additional details on applying.  (more…)
