Positions in Applied Data Engineering: Big Data Management & Governance
To further shape and strengthen our Applied Data Engineering team, we seek enthusiastic colleagues who have completed a PhD degree in applied data/software engineering, information systems, computer science, or a related discipline (e.g., cloud service computing), who hold a strong track record in research demonstrated by internationally recognized publication(s), and who have proven to be excellent lecturers, as witnessed, for example, by (very) positive teaching evaluations.
Since we are particularly high-impact and high-relevance research-oriented, you should be interested to develop application specific solutions in domains such as agro-food, and, safety and security. We refer to this as flavor of data engineering as “applied data engineering” that ultimately aims at business expansion or entrepreneurial growth. We are thus particularly interested in scholars who develop and experiment with new and creative data-driven and applied data engineering approaches in conjunction with data entrepreneur- or business scholars and practitioners in the before-mentioned domains.
Although we thus encourage applications in all areas of Applied Data Engineering, our group is particularly looking to increase its strength in (1) applying machine-learning solutions to data-pipelines and data lakes, (2) quality and compliance aspects in distributed data-intensive computing, and, (3) digital servitization, edge-computing and IoT. These three areas also pertain to data-driven national and EU projects that currently run, and revolve around entrepreneurial governance, privacy-by-design, and, security and safety in the security and agro food domains.
We specifically invite applications for this position at the level of assistant professor.
The successful candidate is expected to start asap. In particular, the profile of the Data-Driven Services Computing candidate should meet the following qualifications:
The candidate will be involved in courses such as IoT, innovation Service, and, Data-Driven Services.
A position at the vibrant JADS Mariënburg campus for five years for 0.8 – 1 FTE as an assistant-professor, with a potential continuation as a tenured assistant/associate professor.
In particular, after two years the contract may be continued either as a tenure track position, or for at least three years as a regular assistant professor position. In case after two years the candidate continues in the tenure track, the position can become tenured after four/five years if the candidate satisfies the tenure requirements of JADS Mariënburg.
Note that the position comes with a very attractive job package that features benefits including pension subsidence, insurance discounts, career support spouses, ample vacation days (41), and a fixed end-of-year bonus (8,3%), to mention but a few.
The gross salary is largely determined by the Dutch labour agreement (CAO NU) for universities, namely scale 11 (a maximum annual gross salary of € 69,500) and we aim to offer a competitive salary within this framework.
