Job News


The Distributed Systems group in the Department Software Technology of Delft University of Technology is looking for a talented, ambitious, and enthusiastic Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Distributed Systems.


Department/faculty: Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science
Level: PhD degree (prof)
Working hours: 38 hours per week
Contract: Tenure track (6 years initially)
Salary: €3400 to €4551 per month gross


Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science

The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS) is known worldwide for its high academic quality and the social relevance of its research programmes. The faculty’s excellent facilities accentuate its international position in teaching and research. Within this interdisciplinary and international setting the faculty employs more than 1100 employees including about 400 graduate students and about 2100 students. Together they work on a broad range of technical innovations in the fields of sustainable energy, telecommunications, microelectronics, embedded systems, computer and software engineering, interactive multimedia and applied mathematics. EEMCS: Your Connection to the Future.


The Department of Software Technology (ST) is one of the leading Dutch departments in research and academic education in computer science, employing over 150 people. The ST Department is responsible for a large part of the curriculum of the bachelor’s and master’s programmes in Computer Science as well as the master’s programme in Embedded Systems. The inspiration for its research topics is largely derived from technical ICT problems in industry and society related to large-scale distributed processing, embedded systems, programming productivity, and web-based information analysis. 


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.     


For more information about this position please check out the TU Delft website: or contact Prof. D.H.J. Epema, phone: +31 (0)15-2783853, e-mail: To apply, please e-mail an application letter, a detailed curriculum vitae including a publication list, research and teaching statements, and the names of three references by 29 February 2016 to P.T.M. van den Bergh, When applying for this position, please refer to vacancy number EWI2015-44.
