Temporal logics for collective adaptive systems

1 Research Collaborator position


The candidate will study the temporal logics appropriate for supporting distribute monitoring of cyber physical systems and the linguistic constructs useful for specifying spatial aspects of such systems. These formal languages will be the starting point for the definition of a distributed algorithm that can be used to monitor systems consisting of a large number of agents distributed over the space, taking noise and imprecision consistently into account. The monitoring routines will be integrated into statistical verification routines for model-based design of cyber physical systems, relying also on machine learning methodologies.

Formal requirements:

Possession of a 4-5 years undergraduate degree or equivalent MSc’s level education in the related areas. The candidate must have a curriculum with a suitable scientific and professional background for carrying out research activity and experience in the required field. Excellent knowledge of English, both written and spoken.
