PHD RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP ON QUERYING BIG DATA
AT THE NORWEGIAN UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY (NTNU)

One fully-funded PhD research fellowship is offered in the ExiBiDa project (http://research.idi.ntnu.no/exibida/) in the Data and Information Management Group (http://www.ntnu.edu/idi/groups/dif) of NTNU.

In ExiBiDa, we will focus on exploratory analysis and querying of Big Data, and develop frameworks and scalable techniques for supporting such analytical queries. In particular, the PhD candidate will work with challenges related to efficient algorithms and index structures for processing Big Data.

Qualifications:

  • A master’s degree in Computer and Information Science or equivalent with very good results is required.
  • A solid knowledge of database systems and algorithms and an ability/desire to publish in top database conferences (VLDB, SIGMOD, ICDE, EDBT, CIKM) are essential.

Since Trondheim is a bilingual city where almost everybody speaks and understands English fluently, candidates need not be afraid of a language barrier. The working language of the research group is English.
