Enterprise collaboration has been on the mind of business executives since the advent of collaboration technologies and even more so as mobile devices have been widely adopted as standard distribution channels for enterprise applications. The challenge however is to understand how to make all these tools and technologies useful to drive higher business outcomes in more agile work processes. We believe that enterprise collaboration can revolutionize the way how enterprises organize work and at the same time tighten relationships with clients. We also believe that standard public frameworks for collaboration such as face book, LinkedIn, Google+ etc. are not suitable to enable enterprise collaboration; industry and academia alike must innovate in this space of enabling collaboration in highly constraint environments such as large enterprises. Finally, we believe that effective usage of social computing techniques have the potential to introduce disruptive changes in the way we work.
We are seeking candidates for Researcher level positions with IBM Research – India.

Desired Skills & Experience
The research agenda of the Programming Technologies and Software Engineering department at
IBM Research – India focuses on improving productivity in software development, testing, and
maintenance, and on improving software quality. Our agenda is driven specifically by the needs
of the software services industry. Our research uses many core techniques, such as static and dynamic program analysis, model-driven development, text analysis, and data mining. In addition
to developing new technologies that have a significant business impact, we strive for broader scientific impact by publishing our research in top programming languages and software engineering conferences. Below we describe our current research themes and list our recent publications.
Our research agenda in software testing focuses on developing innovative techniques and tools that bring automation and rigor to the tasks that are performed manually in testing services, often in an ad-hoc manner, and are prone to human lapses. Our research covers a broad spectrum of topics, including test automation, test data generation, test suite reduction, test repair, and regression testing.
Mining Software Repositories
Repositories, such as version-management systems and bug-management systems, contain a wealth of information on how an application evolves over time. This information, if mined appropriately, can help project teams gain insights for supporting maintenance of the software, improving design/ reuse, and enabling effective transitioning of new people into a project. Our research agenda in this area focuses on using a combination of text analytics, mining, code analysis, and visualization to enable decision making, based on knowledge derived from software repositories.
Programming the Web
Modern web application design requires expertise in multiple, low-level, sophisticated web technologies and mobile platforms. The pervasive use of error-prone dynamically-typed scripting languages for web programming together with the significant effort required to interface among these mismatched web technologies drastically slows down the overall development process. Our research on structured web development intends to systematize the prevalent chaotic practices for developing rich internet applications across their complete life-cycle, i.e., their design, implementation, deployment and maintenance, and enable low-effort, rapid application development. Our investigations span over multiple interesting problems including automated web development using high-level declarative models, responsive web design for heterogeneous mobile platforms and correct-by-construction application development.
The Programming Technologies and Software Engineering department at IBM Research India is seeking applications, for permanent researcher and fixed-term postdoc positions, from fresh as well as experienced researchers. Applications should have a PhD in Computer Science and an excellent track record demonstrated by publications, patents, and technical impact. Our current areas of interest (see overleaf) include program analysis and its applications to program understanding, debugging and testing; mining of information from software repositories; empirical software engineering; and model-driven development. Candidates with an MS degree and an aptitude for working in a research environment are also encouraged to apply. A strong interest in industrial research and building complex software systems is a must. As a member of the research team, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with some of the best minds at IBM, work with premier academic research institutions, and deploy your methods and tools for use by a vast network of IBM practitioners. Researchers in IBM are expected to publish their work at the top conferences in their field.
