The exten­sion of the Inter­net into the phys­ical world (Inter­net of Things, Cyber-Phys­ical Sys­tems) requires the integ­ra­tion of many research areas such as Web tech­no­lo­gies, dis­trib­uted sys­tems, data­bases, net­works and sensor net­works. The chair of “Open Dis­trib­uted Sys­tems” researches scal­able tech­no­lo­gies and plat­forms in this area with spe­cial focus on Semantic Web and Linked Data tech­no­lo­gies for data stream pro­cessing. In this domain a pleth­ora of inter­est­ing research ques­tions need to be answered to enable scal­able dis­trib­uted data man­age­ment which is also effi­cient at a net­work level.

Work­ing field:

Cur­rently we are look­ing for a postdoc researcher for this inter­est­ing research area. The suc­cess­ful can­did­ate will do research in an inter­est­ing and inspir­ing group and play an act­ive role in teach­ing and ment­or­ing stu­dents. Par­tic­u­larly, we are look­ing for can­did­ates with the fol­low­ing expert­ise:


  • suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) and PhD in com­puter sci­ence
  • very good lan­guage and writ­ing skills in Ger­man and Eng­lish
  • research expert­ise with sig­ni­fic­ant pub­lic­a­tion record in sev­eral of the fol­low­ing areas:
a) inter­net tech­no­lo­gies
b) net­works
c) dis­trib­uted sys­tems
d) dis­trib­uted data­base sys­tems
e) cloud
f) semantic Web and Linked Data
g) data stream pro­cessing
h) mod­el­ing and ana­lysis of Big Data
  • very good pro­gram­ming skills (C / C++, Java, Python)
  • interest in chal­len­ging sci­entific prob­lems and motiv­a­tion for inde­pend­ent goal-driven research

We strongly encour­age applic­a­tion with the goal of build­ing up inde­pend­ent research groups.
