According to the German TVöD 13
At the Institute of Data Science in Jena we are establishing a new research group on „Data Management Technologies“. In this group, we develop novel methods and techniques for storing, managing, describing, and processing large amounts of multi-dimensional data in distributed storage systems. The work is conducted in close collaboration with the German Remote Sensing Data Center and external partners at the Thüringer Landessternwarte Tautenburg and the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy.
In addition to our ongoing research on data management challenges for remote sensing (in particular earth observation), your task is to develop and establish Radio Astronomy as another important application domain for research in the area of large-scale data management. To fully leverage the potential synergy of common data management problems between both application domains, it is of importance to gain a good understanding of the Radio Astronomy domain and its data management challenges. You are responsible for the in-depth analysis of requirements for the storage, management, description, and processing of large volumes (in the PB range) of scientific, multi-dimensional data in cooperation with our external partners from the Radio Astronomy domain. Based on these requirements you design novel methods and techniques for scalable storage management of large scientific data sets, efficient data access paths, and processing capabilities for Radio Astronomy applications.
The emphasis of your activities will be on:
The position allows obtaining a PhD degree at a collaborating university.
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives.
Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (m/f/non-binary).
Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
