The High Performance Distributed Computing group of the Computer Systems section studies parallel and distributed programming systems in combination with real-world applications. Modern applications with societal impact (e.g., Internet-of-Things, blockchains, Bioinformatics) often need to address a wide spectrum of techniques for data generation and processing, using a range of computing infrastructures from small sensors to big supercomputers. The HPDC group investigates programming environments for modern processors/accelerators and distributed sensor processing systems for IoT, always with experimental evaluations. The group works on several high-performance parallel applications in computer science (e.g., reasoning, machine learning, multimedia), other science domains (e.g., astronomy, bioinformatics, forensic science), and industry/government (blockchains, business analytics). The group has a strong international profile and excellent ties to the other chairs within the computer systems section (Massivizing Computer Systems, led by prof. Alexandru Iosup, and Systems & Network Security, led by prof. Herbert Bos), and with other Computer Science and applications groups.
We are looking for a candidate with a strong international research profile, as shown by publications in top conferences in the area of high performance distributed systems, and a strong track record in teaching computer science courses at university level. The candidate should be able to conduct core systems research, including real-world experimentation (supported by our state-of-the-art experimental wide-area DAS-5 supercomputer), as well as application-inspired research.
All appointments will be for tenure track positions, with an initial contract period of 5 years. Starting dates are negotiable, but should be close to September, 2018. You may find information about our excellent fringe benefits at http://www.workingatvu.nl.
• Remuneration of 8.3% end-of-year bonus and 8% holiday allowance
• Participation in a solid pension scheme (ABP)
• A minimum of 29 holidays in case of full-time employment
The salary will be in accordance with university regulations for academic personnel, and range from a minimum of € 3475,00 gross per month in the first year up to a maximum of € 6438,00 gross per month (salary scale 11 to 14) based on a full-time employment.
