MoDev aims at combining well-established software development paradigms to maximise the trade-off between three core aspects: variability, flexibility and agility.  MoDev will provide methodological and technical solutions for the combination of Software Product Lines (SPLs), blended Model-based Development (MBD), and DevOps, with focus on early verification and validation (V&V). The solutions will be concretised into a prototype framework.

The postdoc researcher will focus on identify theories, methods and tools for blended and collaborative modelling, in terms of editing, visualization and synchronisation, of SPLs, and theories, methods and tools for continuous model-based development and analysis of product families. The position also involves teaching.

The postdoc will work with the project team in MoDev, but is expected to manage her/his duties independently.
