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