# Graduate Research Assistant Position in Programming Languages and Software Engineering
I am currently seeking a graduate student interested in programming languages
and software engineering research to commence at the Fall 2017 semester.
Potential research topics include (static/dynamic) program analysis and/or
transformation (e.g., refactoring) with a focus on helping to maintain and/or
evolve large and complex existing software systems. Potential topics also
include automated bug finding approaches and software security w.r.t. software
evolution and/or component composition. The successful candidate will be
expected to work on projects that normally yield open source developer tool
research prototypes, typically plug-ins to popular IDEs or build systems. More
information can be found on [on the main supervisor's
Of particular interest are students interested in applying to the City
University of New York - CUNY's Graduate Center Ph.D. program in Computer
Science concurrently with the research assistantship, see below.
The application deadline is November 1. The Ph.D. Program application deadline
is January 1, 2016. Please see below for additional details on applying.
## Topics of Interest
- Static code analysis
- Dynamic code analysis
- Program transformation
- Software evolution and software security
programming languages, software engineering, software evolution, refactoring,
static analysis, dynamic analysis, IDEs, developer tools, software evolution,
