Postdoctoral Researcher in Distributed Computing
The Department of Computer Science at the Aalto University School of Science is presently looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher in Distributed Computing (Helsinki, Finland). The position belongs to the Aalto career system and the selected person will be appointed for a one-year fixed term appointment with an option for renewal.
The candidate will work in the research group of Assoc. Prof. Keijo Heljanko with focus on Distributed Computing. The group works both on applied algorithms development research on Big Data processing and large scale Distributed Database platforms, as well as on the theoretical foundations of these systems, including theory of concurrent and distributed systems. Typical application areas of the group are the massively parallel processing of next generation sequencing data in Genomics, and the processing of Big Data from the process industry. The profile of the candidates should include either a strong practical background on parallel and distributed computing (e.g., Apache Spark, Hadoop) or a strong theoretical background in algorithms design or concurrency theory. In either case, the postdoc position will include both practical systems work combined with work on the theoretical foundations of large scale distributed systems, such as Big Data platforms and large scale Distributed Databases.
