Innovative Training Network (ITN)
MARIE SKLODOWSKA-CURIE ACTIONS
Lowcomote is an international project aiming at training 15 PhD students, with the potential to become the leaders of tomorrow engineering of low-code development platforms.
Low-code development platforms allow non-programmers to build full applications by interacting through dynamic graphical user interfaces, visual diagrams and declarative languages. The modelling and software engineering research group (miso) of the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid is hiring two PhD researchers within this project:
- ESR1 Scaling Up Citizen Development with Recommender Chatbots. In this PhD, you will create a pro-active recommender system for low-code environments that can be addressed using natural language (a chatbot). The system chatbots will use conversational recommendation techniques exploiting preferences of the target user and like-minded users, artefact attributes, and contextual (action-based) data. See more details here.
Technologies involved: Natural Language processing, Machine Learning, Model-driven Engineering.
- ESR5 Low-code Development of Rich Collaborative Mobile Apps using Active DSLs. Based on Language Engineering techniques, you will create automation support to build mobile apps, employing the novel notion of "Active DSL" developed by our team. In this approach, a domain model will be decorated with contextual and access control rules, graphical representation, geolocation information, collaboration approach, and external API interactions. See more details here.
Technologies involved: Mobile development, Model-driven Engineering.
General elegibility conditions: Master degree in computer science or equivalent (achieved less than 4 years ago), English proficiency, must not have resided in Spain for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior to the recruitment date.
How to apply?: You can apply from the project web page here. Please note that you can apply to more than one project.
Application deadline: April 12th 2019.
