Internal Research Fellow PostDoc in Advanced Requirements Engineering for Space Systems

2018-11-12 11:30:23| Space-careers.com Jobs RSS

Research Fellow opportunity in the Directorate of Technology, Engineering and Quality. ESA is an equal opportunity employer, committed to achieving diversity within the workforce and creating an inclusive working environment. Applications from women are encouraged. Post Internal Research Fellow PostDoc in Advanced Requirements Engineering for Space Systems This post is classified F2 on the Coordinated Organisations salary scale. Location ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands Description The Software Systems Division deals with development techniques for space systems, in particular in the functional domain. This covers all lifecycle aspects from requirements specification to development, verification and validation. It covers missioncritical software, with relevant software technology for flight as well as ground systems. Increased importance is being devoted to the Requirements Engineering RE process and, for the functional domain in particular, to the link between system and SW specifications. This highlights the importance of a wellcontrolled requirements engineering process at all levels. Currently ESA spacecraft requirements are highly diverse across all projects, whereas they ought to be streamlined and made consistent, to reduce the industrial effort, make it more systematic and favour product lines. RE activities targeting the requirements content as opposed to configuration management or exchange look at possible ontologies. Creating ontologies from scratch is workintensive, with no guarantee as to its feasibility currently. Instead, starting from existing requirement documents and trying to derive generic requirements from them could be more efficient. This has been done in the railway sector and also at NASA. It can be done using classic Natural Language Processing NLP techniques. Artificial Neural Networks ANN can also be used to analyse natural language. For example, Hopfield networks or Restricted Boltzman Machine RBM can be used to classify requirements denoising autoencoders can be used to capture the essence of the semantic for requirements Deep Belief Networks DBN can be used to generate similar requirements Deep Convolutional Inverse Graphics Networks DCIGN can be used to rewrite requirements in harmonised ways. Interested candidates are highly encouraged to visit ESA website www.esa.int Fields of activitiesresearch The Research Fellows task will be to use ESA requirements documents e.g. spacecrafts System Requirements Documents as well as ECSS standards to exploit the Neural Network or related AI possibilities to analyse the documents, generate a term glossary, classify the requirements accordingly, support their reorganisation and streamlining, and possibly regenerate them in the form of generic documentation of ESA missions. Technical competencies Ability to conduct research autonomously Breadth of exposure coming from past andor current researchactivities Researchpublication record Knowledge relevant to the field of research General interest in space and space research Ability to gather and share relevant information Behavioural competencies Innovation Creativity Continuous Learning Relationship Management Self Motivation Communication Problem Solving CrossCultural Sensitivity Education Applicants should have recently completed, or be close to completing, a PhD in computer science, modelling methods, or systems requirements engineering. Preference will be given to candidates awarded their doctorate within past five years. Additional requirements The working languages of the Agency are English and French. A good knowledge of one of these is required. Knowledge of another Member State language would be an asset. Other information For behavioural competencies expected from ESA staff in general, please refer to the ESA Competency Framework. The Agency may require applicants to undergo selection tests. The closing date for applications is 10 December 2018. In addition to your CV and your motivation letter, please add your proposal of no more than 5 pages outlining your proposed research.
