Temporary Research Positions

Apart from announcements of specific job positions on this page, the AtlanMod team is open to requests for temporary research positions (i.e., student internships, prospective Ph.D. students, post-doctoral researchers, and/or research engineers). Prior experience with Eclipse Modeling technologies, such as EMF, Ecore, ATL, AMW, AM3, and MoDisco is an important asset. Postdocs must hold a Ph.D. degree in computer science or a related field and have a solid research background on Model-Driven Engineering topics. If you are interested, please send us an email with your current resume to

Post-doctorate and Research Engineer positions on Scalable Model-Driven Engineering

The AtlanMod team is opening two 18-months positions (one postdoc and one research engineer) in the field of Scalable Model-Driven Engineering (MDE).

The aim of the research is developing theoretical foundations and an open-source infrastructure to enable the application of MDE techniques to large volumes of data.

We are looking for highly-motivated researchers, interested in participating in international research projects. The working language of the team is English.

The researchers will investigate enhancements to MDE languages and frameworks to support efficient handling of large models. The parallelization properties of MDE languages like ATL and OCL will be studied, allowing for parallel execution of queries and transformation networks. Efficient persistence of large models on high-performance backends will be investigated. This research will enable the application of MDE in distributed and cloud computing environments.

Within this scope, the precise subject of research will be defined considering the candidate background and his research interests.

Candidates should apply directly via email (with current resume, references and a brief description of research interests) to Applications are welcome until the position is filled but first set of applicants will be considered beginning July 15th, 2013.

Feel free to contact us for more information.

Research Engineers in Model-Driven Engineering

We are opening 2 new positions for postdoctoral fellows or research engineers (i.e. anyone with at least a master can apply for a research engineer position) in the field of Model-Driven engineering (for these open positions main topics will be scalability of MDE techniques, MDE in the cloud and modeling of enterprise architectures using TOGAF and similar frameworks).

Minimum duration is 1 year but positions can be renewed for several additional years if we are both happy with our collaboration. Salary is based on the resume of the candidate. Salary scale follows the official salary scale for French education institutions.

Working language of the team is English (so no need to know French to come to work with us).

Prior knowledge of EMF-based technologies is mandatory for research engineers. Postdoctoral fellows are expected to have a strong research record in MDE. Only applications satisfying this requirement will be acknowledged/considered.

Job location is the beautiful city of Nantes in France (the “most livable city in Europe” according to Time magazine!)

Candidates should apply directly via email with current resume to Applications are welcome until positions are filled (FIFO approach). Starting date is as soon as possible (ideally February/March next year) but we are open to discuss other arrangements.

These positions are an opportunity to work in one of the strongest research teams in MDE and be part of the group that has created the popular ATL transformation language, the MoDisco Reverse Engineering framework among many other modeling technologies. We hope you see this as an exciting opportunity to advance in your career!
