Run-time Management and Scheduling in Big Data Infrastructures Mobile and Cloud-based Systems

Politecnico di Milano is one of the Technical Universities in Italy, it was established in 1863 and it is ranked as one of the most outstanding European universities in Engineering, Architecture and Industrial Design. In many disciplines it is regarded as a leading research institution worldwide. The number of students enrolled in all campuses is approximately 42,000.
The DEpendable Evolvable Pervasive Software Engineering (DEEP-SE) group works within the Dipartimento di Elettronica e Informazione It has been ranked among the “internationally excellent” groups in the software engineering area by [Ren and Taylor, Commun. ACM 50, 6, Jun.2007]. This result has been confirmed by an international peer review panel requested by Politecnico di Milano.

The research activities of the DEEP-SE group ( focus on techniques, tools and frameworks for the development of complex software systems. It encompasses a variety of aspects of such systems, ranging from modeling and analysis issues in the early phases of their development, to issues related to their implementation and runtime management with particular emphasis on middleware solutions for self-management, resource allocation and optimization. The group includes 14 faculties, 12 Post-docs, and 17 PhD students.
In this context, expressions of interest are being sought for two Post-doc positions in the broad area of software engineering, and more specifically on the run-time management and scheduling in big data infrastructures and on the conception, design, implementation, and validation of mobile and cloud-based systems.
The successful candidates are expected to have a PhD degree in a relevant field and a good publication record. Experience in collaborative research projects and in supervising masters and undergraduate students will constitute a preferential element.
Expertise in one of the following fields will be highly regarded: cloud computing, performance evaluation, machine learning, optimization, scheduling, mobile apps, IoT.
The working language will be English, knowledge of Italian is not required.
The position will be fixed-term for one year, renewable for an additional period of another year. The starting date is negotiable but should be around July 1st 2016.
Inquiries and expressions of interest, including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications (with a shortlist of the three most important papers), and an outline of prospective research (no more than 2 pages) should be sent by e-mail to Prof. Danilo Ardagna ( and Prof. Luciano Baresi (

Deadline for submissions: April 30 2016 (submissions received after that date are welcome and will be considered as long as the positions will be still available).
