18 PhD positions in RELATE Project


RELATE: Trans-European Research Training Network on Engineering and Provisioning of Service-Based Cloud Applications (

The FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) "RELATE" provides an opportunity for young researchers to study the latest technologies, platforms and tools in the area of engineering and provisioning of service-based Cloud applications. The ITN consists of seven leading European research institutes and five associated partners.

The ITN will organize regular workshops and summer schools, so that the trained Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) - PhD candidates, and Experienced Researchers (ERs) - PostDocs, can exchange research experience, insights and ideas. A total of 21 fellows, 18 ESR fellows who will register for PhD degrees and three ER fellows, will be recruited. Through an integrative and multidisciplinary research approach, RELATE will promote the advancement of the state-of-the- art in the related areas of model-driven engineering and formal methods, service-based mash-ups and application integration, dependability, performance and trust in service-based cloud applications, as well as quality management and business model innovation.

We are seeking to recruit Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and Experienced Researchers (ERs) under employment contracts with full social security coverage, with living allowance and maximum duration of employment 3 years for ESRs and 2 years for ERs.

In accordance with EU gender policy, the candidacy of women is strongly encouraged.
