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 seeks to hire a Rese­arch Asso­ci­ate (PhD can­did­ate or Post­doc) to con­duct R&D in the area of “scal­able data man­age­ment on mod­ern hard­ware”. The goal is to rese­arch how to lever­age mod­ern hard­ware, such as many-core pro­ces­sors, co-pro­ces­sors like GPUs and FPGAs, new stor­age media like NVRAM and SSDs, as well as high-speed net­works for scal­able data stream pro­ces­sing. In this con­text, the rese­arch asso­ci­ate will invest­ig­ate how mod­ern hard­ware can be effi­ciently app­lied in mod­ern com­puter archi­tec­tures and con­sider app­lic­a­tions such as e-sci­ences, Indus­try 4.0, Inter­net of Things, or Digi­tal Human­it­ies as tech­no­logy dri­vers. This effort is part of the recently estab­lished pri­or­ity pro­gram SPP 2037 “Scal­able Data Man­age­ment for Future Hard­ware" fun­ded by the Ger­man Sci­ence Found­a­tion (DFG).
