[Frama-c-discuss] [Job] 2-year Postdoc Position on Frama-C/E-ACSL

The Software Reliability and Security Lab at CEA LIST (Paris Saclay, 
France) is hiring a 2-year postdoctoral researcher who will improve 
E-ACSL, the runtime verification plug-in of Frama-C.

Frama-C is an opensource framework providing several analyzers for C 
code. The analyzed programs can be annotated by formal specifications 
written in the ACSL specification language. E-ACSL is one of the 
existing Frama-C analyzers. It converts ACSL annotations into C code in 
order to verify their validity at runtime, when the program is being 

The goal of this postdoctoral position is twofolds: on the one hand, the 
postdoctoral researcher shall propose new compilation schemes to support 
additional ACSL constructs; on the other hand (s)he shall define new 
compilation techniques (or adapt existing ones) in order to optimize the 
generated code for reducing the time overhead and the memory footprint 
of the generated program. The work will be guided by and evaluated on 
case studies providing by a few of our academic and industrial partners.

Knowledge in at least one of the following fields is required:
- functional programming (ideally OCaml)
- C programming
- compilation
- static analysis
- semantics of programming languages
- runtime verification
- formal specification
