*research doctoral student*

with a keen interest in:

     * Large-scale Graph Processing
     * Semantic Web / Linked Data
     * Distributed Computing

to work on Signal/Collect - a framework for synchronous and asynchronous 
parallel graph processing that allows programmers to express many 
algorithms on graphs in a concise and elegant way. More information on 
Signal/Collect can be found on our project page 
(http://www.ifi.uzh.ch/ddis/research/sc.html & 
http://code.google.com/p/signal-collect/).

We offer:

     * motivated colleagues who are passionate about research
     * a work environment that is well equipped with the newest hardware
       and software technology
     * a salary according to the standard university regulations
       ( > 57'000 CHF / year; increases with experience)
     * support for your personal development and career planning
     * an attractive work environment both within the research group and 
beyond
       (Zurich is repeatedly voted the city with the highest standard of 
living
        in the world)
     * A highly successful PhD program with graduates at top rated 
institutions
       world-wide

You will be collaborating in a larger research team consisting of the 
Dynamic and Distributed Information Systems Group 
(DDIS)(http://www.ifi.uzh.ch/ddis/)  headed by Prof. Abraham Bernstein, 
which is part of the Department of Informatics of the University of 
Zurich. The group is active in International and Swiss National research 
projects and we are looking for candidates to help us continue these 
efforts.

You have:

     * a master's degree in informatics, computer science (or an equivalent
       university study)
     * expertise in database systems, distributed computing,
       or Semantic Web / Linked Data
       (note: only expertise in one of the fields is necessary;
        multiple areas is desirable)
     * good programming skills in several languages (Scala a plus)
     * an interest in applying computer science research to real-world 
problems
     * excellent command of English
     * German is a plus but not required

If you are interested:

Send your application (including CV, final grades, and - if possible - 
thesis copy as a PDF file) via e-mail to:
