Keywords: graphical user interface, software analysis, formal methods, open source


At the heart of the Paris-Saclay campus, CEA List’s Software Safety and Security Laboratory develops analysis tools to verify and enforce sensitive properties of software. Our goal is to provide trust in mission-critical and sensitive systems. We are open-source believers, and we take pride in seeing our science-fueled tools used for industry-grade applications.

We are looking for an engineer to join our Frama-C team during 3 years. Frama-C is a sound static and dynamic analysis platform targeting C/C++/JavaCard source code. It relies on advanced techniques such as abstract interpretation and theorem proving. The platform has been used in academia and the industry to verify the safety and security of control systems and communication protocols, to prevent various CWE occurrences, and to prove functional properties on small and large codebases.

The main goal of this position is to improve the new Frama-C graphical user interface. The platform is used by developers, auditors, and evaluators to validate security properties, and we want to provide them with beyond-state-of-the-art methods, and tools to support their mission. For this, we need an efficient and meaningful visualization of the results of the analyses, in particular since codebases become larger and larger.


  • Develop new features and improvements for Frama-C
  • Run case studies for partners and OSCS
  • Interact with practitioners, prescribers, and the open-source community
  • Contribute to the dissemination of the team results in top scientific and technical venues
  • Contribute to the development of the team


  • Master’s degree or PhD
  • Ability to develop in TypeScript or JavaScript
  • Knowledge of a framework React-like
  • Knowledge of a functional language
  • Knowledge of the C language and ability to quickly grasp new ones


This position will be filled as soon as possible. Every potential candidate feeling they could fit the description are welcome to contact us or apply by emailing the persons indicated below. We try hard to run an inclusive team, so candidates from under-represented groups are certainly welcome. The selection process will include scientific, technical, and HR interviews.
