The REVEAL group consists of two professors (Michele Lanza & Gabriele Bavota), 2 postdocs, and 5 PhD students, all focusing their research on the above listed topics. REVEAL is part of the Software Institute (SI), a soon to be founded center of excellence in software engineering research.

The Faculty of Informatics at USI, located in beautiful Lugano, Switzerland, was established in October 2004 and offers BSc, MSc, and PhD study programs. The official teaching and working language of the Faculty is English. Salaries are very competitive (80 kCHF for postdocs), but refrain from applying if you think that money is more important than fun & hard work.

  • PhD in Computer Science or Software Engineering
  • Proficiency in spoken and written scientific English
  • Strong track record of publications in top software engineering venues (you should know which ones)
  • Excellent communication skills

Candidates are requested to submit their applications via email. With respect to the format you’re allowed to surprise us, but if you want to play it safe, a CV, a publication list and one or two references will suffice.
