Eindhoven University of Technology: Full Professor Database Technology
Seeking a candidate who should be an authority in a core area of Database Technology, and be able to teach courses on all basic topics within the broader field, with a clear and compelling world-class research agenda.
Company: Eindhoven University of Technology
Location: Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Position: Full Professor Database Technology
Database Technology as a discipline is represented by internationally well-recognized and influential researchers but it is currently still a too small niche within the TU/e and therefore requires further strengthening given its importance. What is lacking is a dedicated Database Technology research group led by a full-professor focusing completely on Database Technology. Clearly, conducting data science is impossible without studying Database Technology: how to structure, store, select and retrieve data is at the very core of data science and therefore essential. Hence, the need for a Chair in Database Technology.
The field of Database Technology should be interpreted in a broad way and as the full professor you will focus on a subarea of choice, but should be a world-leading expert in this area. Current research in Database Technology already being covered includes the management of massive graph structured data sets, such as social networks and linked web data. The area of specialization of the new chair should complement the work done within the Section Information Systems.
The candidate should be an authority in a core area of Database Technology, and be able to teach courses on all basic topics within the broader Database Technology field (including Big Data Analytics, Data Warehousing/OLAP, Web Data Management, Data-driven Web applications, and Database systems. We expect the candidate to have a clear and compelling world-class research agenda.
