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 large dynamic graphs. As the cur­rent nature of graph pro­cessing is shift­ing from quer­ies over a static graph rep­res­ent­a­tion to highly dynamic graph envir­on­ments (e.g., Social Net­works, Inter­net of Things), we are inter­ested in build­ing a het­ero­gen­eous, dis­trib­uted, stream­ing sys­tem that is able to not only answer quer­ies, but also run graph ana­lyt­ics and machine learn­ing tasks using the tem­poral aspect of events. In some instances, recog­niz­ing a tem­poral effect can be insight­ful (e.g., the dur­a­tion of time a link exists between two nodes). Although there is a rich body of work on static and dynamic graphs, ana­lyz­ing their tem­poral nature is less well stud­ied. We encour­age applic­a­tions from highly motiv­ated can­did­ates who wish to con­trib­ute to a novel het­ero­gen­eous and dis­trib­uted stream­ing sys­tem for tem­poral graph stream query pro­cessing in highly dynamic envir­on­ments.


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: dis­trib­uted sys­tems, stream pro­cessing, graph pro­cessing/min­ing, and scal­able machine learn­ing. Can­did­ates must have good com­mu­nic­a­tion skills in Eng­lish and be pro­fi­cient in pro­gram­ming lan­guages, such as Java or C++.

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
