Fully Funded PhD Position in SeeQR Project at TU Eindhoven

The SeeQR project is a research collaboration between TU Eindhoven and TU Delft, the leading technical universities in the Netherlands, focusing on web data management. The project has an opening in Eindhoven for a fully funded PhD student position (4 years), supported by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), to start as soon as possible but no later than 1 April 2011.

Motivated by the growing increase in the practical use of semantic web data management technologies such as RDF and SPARQL, e.g., in the Linked Open Data initiative, the PhD student will investigate sophisticated scalable RDF indexing mechanisms and SPARQL query processing strategies over massive dynamically evolving data sets.

The work will be carried out together with an experienced team of computer scientists in a challenging yet supportive research environment. Tasks will include developing new algorithms and data structures; their prototyping, benchmarking, and theoretical analysis; and, scientific publishing of results.


We are looking for a candidate who meets the following requirements:

strong mathematical and programming skills;
an MSc degree in Computer Science, Mathematics, or other closely related discipline;
experience in empirical research (e.g., system design and benchmarking);
comfort with formal notation and writing, and unsupervised researching of relevant scientific literature;
excitement and drive to contribute to cutting edge research in web data management systems; and,
good communication skills in English, both in speaking and in writing;
Appointment and salary

We offer:

a full-time temporary appointment for a period of 4 years, with an intermediate evaluation after 10 months;
a gross salary of € 2,042 per month in the first year, increasing up to € 2,612 per month in the fourth year;
