The SNE lab conducts research on leading-edge computer systems of all scales, ranging from global-scale systems and networks to embedded devices. Across these multiple scales, our particular interest is on extra-functional properties of systems, such as performance, programmability, productivity, security, trust, sustainability and, last but not least, the societal impact of emerging systems-related technologies.

We are looking for a PhD candidate who wishes to develop expertise in big data management and cloud computing. You will investigate new approaches and techniques for building infrastructure-aware big data computing and knowledge extraction systems in Cloud, making use of advances in data fusion, log mining, machine learning, knowledge discovery, and optimization techniques that can support efficient data analysis and processing across multiple heterogeneous infrastructures. The use cases driving the research will be drawn from two recently funded EU H2020 projects.

Candidates who have a background in data analytics, machine learning, graph theory and/or semantic web technologies (e.g. regarding ontologies and semantic reasoning) are preferred.

The appointment will be on a temporary basis for a period of 18 months and after satisfactory evaluation it can be extended for a total duration of 4 years. The appointment should lead to a dissertation (PhD thesis). An educational plan will be drafted that includes attendance of courses and (international) meetings. The PhD candidate is also expected to assist in teaching of bachelor and master students.

The total salary includes an additional 8% holiday allowance and 8,3% end-of-year bonus, under theCollective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities (Cao).

English is the working language in the Informatics Institute. As in Amsterdam almost everybody speaks and understands English, candidates need not be afraid of the language barrier.
