part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

The expan­sion of the Inter­net into the phys­ical world (Inter­net of Things, Cyber-Phys­ical Sys­tems) requires the integ­ra­tion of many areas of research, such as: Web tech­no­lo­gies, dis­trib­uted sys­tems, data­base sys­tems, net­works and sensor net­works. The Depart­ment of Open Dis­trib­uted Sys­tems (ODS) is ded­ic­ated to the devel­op­ment of scal­able tech­no­lo­gies and plat­forms for this area, with spe­cial emphasis on Semantic Web and Linked Data tech­no­lo­gies for power data pro­cessing. Thereby, a mul­ti­tude of inter­est­ing open research ques­tions have to be solved in order to enable simple dis­trib­uted scal­able data man­age­ment with sim­ul­tan­eous net­work effi­ciency.

Work­ing field:

Cur­rently we are look­ing for a PhD researcher to work on and research excit­ing sci­entific ques­tions in this field. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will con­duct research in an inter­est­ing and inspir­ing group and play an act­ive role in teach­ing and ment­or­ing stu­dents.


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in com­puter sci­ence, applied math­em­at­ics, stat­ist­ics, or sim­ilar sub­jects with excel­lent res­ults
  • very good lan­guage and writ­ing skills in Ger­man and Eng­lish
  • know­ledge of sev­eral of the fol­low­ing areas:
a) dis­trib­uted data­base sys­tems
b) stream data pro­cessing
c) mod­el­ing and ana­lyz­ing big data
d) dis­trib­uted sys­tems
e) cloud
f) semantic Web and Linked Data
  • very good pro­gram­ming skills (C / C ++, Java, Python)
  • interest in chal­len­ging sci­entific issues and motiv­a­tion for inde­pend­ent and focused research
