The goal of the IRMAR project is to model waste processes from the generation of waste to the disposal of waste and to describe their effect on the environment. In particular, IRMAR intends to model the recycling potential of waste. This PhD project aims to provide a theoretical and methodological framework for the development of domain specific languages for environmental science. In particular, the interest is in building domain specific languages that allow researchers to easily build new types of waste processes and new types of analysis for them.
Candidates must have a master degree in software engineering or equivalent academic qualifications, and must have a strong background in modelling and meta-modelling techniques, like UML and EMF or equivalent technologies, and the development of programming languages or formal languages. Furthermore, good command of the English language is essential.
