About the project.
The aim of the research is to study open source software supply chains. Open source software provides critical infrastructure for software projects, yet the widespread copying of code, the reliance on unverified components and involvement of potentially unqualified developers pose enormous risks that are not well understood. The measurement of these supply chains requires collection curation, and analysis of massive datasets representing the evolution history of all open source projects and involves machine learning and big data techniques. This research will lay the foundations needed on one hand, to quantify the risks of software supply chains and on the other hand, to develop practices and tools to mitigate them.
Main research directions: Open Source Software Engineering, Mining Software Repositories, Software Supply Chains
The research will be conducted at the Institute of Data Science and Digital Technologies of the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, Vilnius University.
Minimum qualification requirements.
A researcher seeking the position of Chief Researcher must have had at least 15 scientific articles listed in CA WoS. Senior Researchers may be reappointed if they had at least eight scientific articles listed in CA WoSduring the last five years.
The position requires: a Ph.D. in Computer Science or a related area, a
minimum of 7 years of experience as a Professor, a research record that includes
widely cited publications related to open source software and a demonstrated
track record of multidisciplinary research.
The candidate would be responsible for conducting and promoting this research locally and internationally. He or she will be expected to foster collaborative work, not only with researchers within the University, but also with talent in the field.
