Universidad Rey Juan Carlos is a young university, founded in 1995, located in the suburban area of Madrid, with very good connection by bus, subway and train. The university has a big campus in Mostoles for all short of Engineering disciplines, including an important School of Software Engineering and Computer Science.
The candidate will be involved in the H2020 project ElasTest (GA 731535), coordinated by the CodeURJC research laboratory. The CodeURJC lab has been involved in more than 20 research and industrial projects, including European projects like Nubomedia (coordinated by URJC), FIWARE, and ElasTest (which we are coordinating right now), and industrial projects with important international companies from the telecommunications and energetic sectors.
The CodeURJC lab is focused on two main areas: real-time communication, where the group leads the open source projects Kurento and OpenVidu, currently running in production in several products developed by third parties; and software testing, where the group is leading the ElasTest open source platform aimed at bringing observability and better management to the testing process and helping companies to improve their CI/CD practices.
The group is seeking for a postdoc researcher, with experience in software testing or software engineering, to be involved in the research work being carried out within the group. The applicant will be integrated into a motivated team, with other developers and researchers, that enjoy building software for the community.
The selected candidate will work in a team with other researchers worldwide, including some of the most influential researchers in software testing. They will attend meetings and could take over tasks the group have in the context of the ElasTest project, being involved in the activities of the project in general.
We offer a range salary between 35,000-40,000€/year depending on the skills of the candidate. We have a good environment, and we work remotely on Fridays.
If you’re passionate about software engineering, research and open source, with a willing for helping the community, we look forward to having you on board!
Candidates, please send an email to Dr. Francisco Gortázar (email@example.com), indicating in the subject “ElasTest postdoc position” with a short CV, including the most relevant publications, and a description of the work carried out by the applicant within those articles. We might ask applicants for an online interview. All candidates will be contacted back with information on the results of their application.
