The University of York’s Department of Computer Science and Leonardo UK are collaborating in an Innovate UK funded Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), aiming to develop a model-based software architecture digital platform that will support the engineering and delivery of complex systems of systems at Leonardo, and are looking for a KTP Associate to join the project. Leonardo is a global high-tech company and one of the key players in Aerospace, Defence and Security. Headquartered in Italy, Leonardo has over 45,000 employees, of which 7,000 are based in the UK. York’s Computer Science is a UK top ten research department - according to the Times Higher Education’s ranking of the latest REF results (2021). The Department’s Automated Software Engineering group that the KTP Associate will join, is a global leader in model-based software engineering research, open-source development and knowledge transfer.
The successful applicant will be employed by the University of York and based within Leonardo UK. We welcome applications from candidates who may wish to work fully remotely (from within the UK) or to combine remote and office working, in accordance with the University's remote working policy. You must be eligible for full security clearance. For more information and guidance please visit: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/united-kingdom-security-vetting-clearance-levels.
Please note this role is available for up to 30 months.
The KTP Associate will contribute to the envisioned digital platform by designing and developing a domain-specific modelling language, supporting graphical/textual modelling tools, interoperability facilities with existing modelling tools used at Leonardo, and model management facilities for activities such as model validation and code generation. The KTP Associate will collaborate closely with a second associate who will develop a model repository for publishing and reusing component and system models across systems, and a continuous integration/delivery infrastructure that can automate consistency checking and artefact integration and delivery activities. Both KTP Associates will work closely with the Leonardo Software Application Framework (LSAF) team and will jointly develop a case study with internal customers to assess the benefits of the new software architecture digital platform.
