Big Data offers com­pletely new pos­sib­il­it­ies for data pro­cessing and data ana­lysis. Massive amounts of data can be ana­lyzed with low latency by advanced machine learn­ing meth­ods and thus enable the near real-time action­ab­il­ity on new insights and pre­dic­tions about com­plex rela­tion­ships are cre­ated. However, these pos­sib­il­it­ies pose immense eth­ical chal­lenges to data ana­lysis with respect to sys­tems, algorithms and data pro­cessing. Thus, fair­ness, diversity and, trans­par­ency, neut­ral­ity and pri­vacy have to become key fea­tures of novel data man­age­ment sys­tems.

Work­ing field:

The goal of this research pro­ject is to research and develop the found­a­tions and pro­to­types for
respons­ible data man­age­ment with respect to ensur­ing the afore­men­tioned key fea­tures by means of test­ing and veri­fic­a­tion of algorithms as well as trace­ab­il­ity and repro­du­cib­il­ity of open source and open data. This pos­i­tion includes the oblig­a­tion to teach.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in com­puter sci­ence; PhD (summa cum laude) with focus on data­bases and data man­age­ment; deep know­ledge in imple­ment­a­tion of DBMS, and in data ana­lyt­ics as well as math­em­at­ics (stat­ist­ics and logic) and com­piler con­struc­tion; flu­ent Ger­man and Eng­lish.
desired: exper­i­ences in open-source pro­jects, in industry, pro­ject man­age­ment, and a long record in sci­entific pub­lic­a­tions, teach­ing, and pub­lic present­a­tions
