Rese­arch Assist­ant - salary grade E 13 TV-L Ber­liner Hoch­schu­len

part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

The Ber­lin Uni­ver­sity Alli­ance (BUA) is the joint asso­ci­ation of four Ber­lin uni­ver­sit­ies: Freie Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin, Hum­boldt-Uni­ver­si­tät of Ber­lin, Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin, and Char­ité - Uni­ver­si­täts­med­izin Ber­lin. The four part­ners have joi­ned forces to fur­ther deve­lop the sci­ence land­scape in Ber­lin.

The pro­ject “A Digi­tal Rese­arch Space for the BUA” is a joint ini­ti­at­ive of Tech­nis­che Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin (Qual­ity and Usab­il­ity Lab; Open Dis­trib­uted Sys­tems Group) and Freie Uni­ver­si­tät Ber­lin (Human-Cen­te­red Com­put­ing Group) and is embed­ded in Object­ive 3 “advan­cing rese­arch qual­ity and value” and Object­ive 5 “shar­ing resour­ces” of the BUA.

Work­ing field:

Wit­hin the pro­ject, an open sci­ence plat­form for rese­arch data will be deve­lo­ped. The plat­form is inten­ded to allow for the inter­act­ive search, explor­a­tion, visu­al­iz­a­tion, and ana­lysis of rese­arch data. It is fur­ther meant to demon­strate open sci­ence wit­hin con­crete usage scen­arios in the every­day work of rese­arch­ers in vari­ous dis­cip­lines. Spe­cific­ally, it invol­ves the imple­ment­a­tion of a graph­ical user inter­face (for search, explor­a­tion, visu­al­iz­a­tion, and ana­lysis of rese­arch data), vari­ous basic func­tions, the con­nec­tion to exter­nal data and know­ledge sources, as well as the integ­ra­tion of exist­ing com­pon­ents.

  • Devel­op­ment of an open sci­ence plat­form for rese­arch data based on already exist­ing com­pon­ents,
  • eval­u­ation of rel­ev­ant approa­ches and sys­tems, and selec­tion of suit­able frame­works and tech­no­lo­gies,
  • col­lab­or­a­tion with regio­nal, natio­nal, and inter­na­tio­nal part­ners,
  • rese­arch in the areas of digit­al­iz­a­tion of sci­ence and rese­arch data infra­struc­tures and reg­u­lar pre­sent­a­tion and pub­lic­a­tion of rese­arch res­ults,
  • teach­ing in the open dis­trib­uted sys­tems group.

  • very good lan­guage and writ­ing skills in Ger­man and Eng­lish,
  • Good pro­gram­ming skills and safe hand­ling of devel­op­ment tools (exper­i­ence in Python and JavaS­cript, basic know­ledge in Java),
  • exper­i­ence in the devel­op­ment of web app­lic­a­tions (ide­ally full stack) and know­ledge of cur­rent web frame­works and web tech­no­lo­gies,
  • fun­da­men­tal know­ledge of meth­ods and algo­rithms for data search, explor­a­tion, visu­al­iz­a­tion, and ana­lysis,
  • basic under­stand­ing of the seman­tic web, lin­ked data, and know­ledge graphs.
