Job description

Job summary

We are looking to hire a Research Associate (post-doctoral) to work on projects at the intersection of compilers and data management systems at the Department of Computing at Imperial College London. The objective is to study how techniques and technologies from compilers can be applied to data management systems and vice-versa. You will also have the opportunity to work on larger projects (involving other members of the Large-Scale Data & Systems group as well as external & industry collaborators). You will also have time to develop your own research agenda towards a successful career in academia or industrial research.

The post will be based in the Department of Computing at Imperial College London at the South Kensington Campus. The Department of Computing is a leading department of Computer Science among UK Universities, and has consistently been awarded the highest research rating. In the 2014 REF assessment, the Department was ranked third (1st in the Research Intensity table published by The Times Higher) and was rated as "Excellent" in the previous national assessment of teaching quality.

The position is fully funded for two years and includes funding for equipment and travel. Depending on success, the position may be extended beyond the initial two years.

Duties and responsibilities

You would be joining the LSDS group (http://www.lsds.uk) of the Department of Computing under the supervision of Holger Pirk. The group currently has 12 Ph.D. students, two postdocs and four faculty. We work on topics as diverse as data management, compilers, computer architecture, security and even some machine learning (with a systems touch).

Main responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Support existing and new research projects in the group with hands-on contributions and supervision
  • Coordinate contributions to projects by external collaborators
  • Develop new research ideas into publishable results

Essential requirements

    • A completed or about-to-be-completed Ph.D. in computer science or a related field
    • A track record of publications in top conferences or journals in the field
    • Strong & proven implementation skills in the development of complex software
    • Programming experience in a systems programming language (Java, C++, C#, Rust, C, etc.)

It is desirable that you have experience in either the development of data management systems or programming language compilers.

Further information

*Candidates who have not yet been officially awarded their PhD will be appointed as Research Assistant within the salary range £36,694 - £39,888 per annum.

In addition to completing the online application, candidates should attach:

  • A full CV, with a list of all publications
  • A 2-page research statement indicating what you see are interesting research issues relating to the above post and why your expertise is relevant.
