Multi-cloud Storage Middleware - Belgium  

Company managed [?] Still accepting applications

Posted on : 13 May 2017

Project Description

Responsibilities
The age of dominance of a single database technology in the data tier of an application is behind us, and different storage resources (both relational and non-relational, both on-premise and cloud storage offerings) are increasingly being combined in practice. We currently focus on a number of related research challenges, including:
  • Application-level storage policies and customization thereof (e.g. per-tenant),
  • Monitoring dynamic properties of multi-cloud storage architecture,
  • Dynamic (re-)deployment, and other run-time tactics,
  • Online database (micro-)benchmarking, prediction-based solutions, blackbox monitoring of individual storage nodes,
  • Data modeling for different storage technologies (e.g. NoSQL),
  • Systematic support for externalizing this complexity from the application (reusable, configurable middleware).



Profile
If you share our strong interest in storage technology and middleware for distributed systems, and if you have
  • a master in computer science (or equivalent),
  • an analytical mind and technically skilled,
  • optionally some industry experience,
  • and fluent English communication skills,
  • then you might be the researcher we are looking for. 



Offer
  • a supportive and collaborative team in which you can develop know-how and expertise in state-of-the-art technologies,
  • the opportunity to build up research and innovation skills that are essential for a future career in industrial as well as academic research and development environments,
  • support in the further development of your competences to analyze strategic research problems and to architect and evaluate innovative solutions with industrial applicability,
  • an international and multicultural working environment at the Campus.
  • This position is open for junior and senior researchers, including Project Collaborators, PhD students and Post-docs.
  •  This research position can definitely lead to a PhD trajectory in computer science, but this is not a mandatory track for candidates interested to apply for this position.
