Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Fac­ulty IV - Insti­tute of Soft­ware Engin­eer­ing and The­or­et­ical Com­puter Sci­ence / Data­base Sys­tems and Inform­a­tion

Rese­arch Assist­ant - salary grade E13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

under the reserve that funds are gran­ted - part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

Work­ing field:

The Data­base Sys­tems and Inform­a­tion Man­age­ment (DIMA) Group is cur­rently seek­ing to hire a Research Asso­ci­ate (PhD stu­dent) to con­duct research and devel­op­ment in the area of (geo-)dis­trib­uted data pro­cessing. One of the areas of focus is the hand­ling of data­flow con­straints arising from reg­u­lat­ory bod­ies, such as pro­hib­it­ing the flow of data across geo­graph­ical bor­ders and cop­ing with data pro­tec­tion rules that gov­ern the exchange of data among parties. Research top­ics cur­rently being under­taken include: (1) the declar­at­ive spe­cific­a­tion of data­flow con­straints, (2) the integ­ra­tion of con­straint spe­cific­a­tions into an exist­ing data pro­cessing frame­work, and (3) the auto­matic optim­iz­a­tion and trans­la­tion of quer­ies for dis­trib­uted exe­cu­tion that ensures con­straint com­pli­ance. We encour­age applic­a­tions from highly motiv­ated can­did­ates who wish to con­trib­ute to the devel­op­ment of a novel dis­trib­uted data pro­cessing sys­tem that is able to pro­cess het­ero­gen­eous, geo-dis­trib­uted data sources and take both legal and tech­nical con­straints into account.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in com­puter sci­ence with a focus on data man­age­ment, dis­trib­uted sys­tems, or scal­able data ana­lysis. You should be inter­ested in work­ing in a lead­ing research field, devel­op­ing a novel sys­tem, and con­duct­ing research in real-world applic­a­tion set­tings. Know­ledge on one or more of the fol­low­ing areas is highly desired: pro­gram­ming lan­guages and com­pilers, data­base sys­tems, data ana­lysis and machine learn­ing and dis­trib­uted data pro­cessing sys­tems. Can­did­ates must have strong pro­gram­ming skills (prefer­ably Java or C++) and good com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in Eng­lish.

How to ap­ply:

Please send your writ­ten applic­a­tion with the ref­er­ence num­ber and the usual doc­u­ments (in par­tic­u­lar cover letter, CV, academic transcripts, and reference letters) to Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin - Der Präsid­ent - Fakultät IV, Institut für Softwaretechnik und Theoretische Informatik, FG Datenbanksysteme und Informationsmanagement (DIMA), Prof. Dr. Markl, Sekr. E-N 7, Einsteinufer 17, 10587 Berlin or by e-mail to
