DistriNet is a research group at the Department of Computer Science of the KU
Leuven. The extensive expertise of DistriNet focuses on two key research
domains: Distributed Systems and Secure Software. Research on software
engineering techniques is performed in both domains. In collaboration with the
KU Leuven research groups COSIC and CiTiP, DistriNet forms a leading
Cybersecurity research centre. We seek to expand our team with a postdoc who
will coordinate research efforts that aim for a vertical, in-depth study of a
full-stack dependable computing platform for autonomous systems. You will be
working specifically on safety requirements engineering, safety arguments and
safety cases for complex scenarios, and formal specification and
verification/assurance, with an Autonomous Mobile Robot use-case as driver.
Successful candidates will actively seek to take a leading role in a broad
research project. We expect you to:
coordinate research efforts in autonomous systems, oversee the development
of prototypes, and foster synergies and collaboration in the project;
support and co-supervise PhD students across the project domains;
develop your own research agenda, ideally this should be aligned with our
work on autonomous systems;
support educational tasks (teaching, supervision of project students,
etc.) of the department and the research group.
We are looking for strong, enthusiastic researchers who must have
a PhD in Computer Science or Electrical Engineering (or equivalent) with
a background in autonomous systems safety and security, autonomous
decision making, or enhancing reliability and dependability of critical
a clear interest in and experience with autonomous safety-critical
a proven & convincing track record in the above domains (e.g. A-level
a team player attitude and the capability to collaborate in an
international research team;
excellent English communication skills, both oral and written.
We offer a position as postdoc researcher at KU Leuven in a very dynamic and
