Assistant Professor of Distributed Systems
Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands

Delft University of Technology invites applicants for a tenure-track appointment at the Assistant Professor level in the Distributed Systems Group in the Department Software and Computer Technology of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science.

The Distributed Systems Group
The Distributed Systems Group, under the leadership of Prof. Dick Epema, performs world-class research in the design, implementation, deployment, and analysis of large-scale, Internet-based computer systems. It currently has three research lines: big-data processing (e.g., graph processing), scheduling in distributed computing systems (e.g., in clusters and clouds), and cooperative systems (e.g., trust and reputation systems). Its research is fundamental, aimed at the development and evaluation of new generic concepts in systems software, and application-driven, motivated by important application areas. Much of it is experimental, validating the proposed new concepts by means of implementation and deployment in prototypes that are used in the real world.
Job description
The Distributed Systems group is looking for a talented, ambitious, and enthusiastic individual. His/her responsibilities include:
• Conducting research in the field of distributed systems, including the (co-)supervision of PhD students, collaboration with other academic partners and industry, and acquiring external research funding and (co-)managing externally funded research projects;
• Teaching and developing new education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including the supervision of bachelor’s and master’s students in their graduation projects;
• Transferring knowledge and technology to external parties;
