Job opening at TU Delft January 2016

Assistant Professor Distributed Systems (TU Delft)


The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is looking for an Assistant Professor Distributed Systems.


The Distributed Systems group (, under the leadership of Prof. Dick Epema, performs world-class research in the design, implementation, deployment, and analysis of large-scale, Internet-based computer systems. It currently has three research lines: big-data processing (e.g., graph processing), scheduling in distributed computing systems (e.g., in clusters and clouds), and cooperative systems (e.g., trust and reputation systems). Its research is fundamental, aimed at the development and evaluation of new generic concepts in systems software, and application-driven, motivated by important application areas. Much of it is experimental, validating the proposed new concepts by means of implementation and deployment in prototypes that are used in the real world.     

Job description

The Distributed Systems group is looking for a talented, ambitious, and enthusiastic individual. His/her responsibilities include:
• Conducting research in the field of distributed systems, including the (co-)supervision of PhD students, collaboration with other academic partners and industry, and acquiring external research funding and (co-)managing externally funded research projects;
• Teaching and developing new education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including the supervision of bachelor’s and master’s students in their graduation projects;
• Transferring knowledge and technology to external parties;
• Performing department and faculty management tasks.

The successful candidate is expected to significantly contribute to the research portfolio of the Distributed Systems group and is encouraged to develop his/her own research line in a viable and promising subfield of distributed systems. He/she is expected to conduct research in the same experimental flavour as the current Distributed Systems group does.
