Come Work with Arnab!

I am always looking for undergraduate, PhD students and Post-docs to build the next generation of interactive database systems. The group works on fun, fast-paced research in the areas of big data analytics, interactive user interfaces, statistical methods, and next-generation mobile and web technologies.
 
To work with the group, please contact me with a link to an example of technical work you have done before (e.g., source code or demo of software, a research paper, a startup you founded, a mathematical proof).

Postdoctoral Researcher / Research Engineer (1yr term starting immediately, funded by industry partners / OSU Tech Commercialization)

The interactive data systems group has an open position for a postdoctoral researcher / research engineer in the big data analytics research area. The group works on research challenges related to empowering humans to effectively interact with data.

The specific position is related to our current low-latency data cubing efforts project, and other topics related to big data analytics and business intelligence software infrastructure. The goal of the project is to build upon our prior work and develop / test / validate production-ready MVPs in real-world environments. For this specific position you should be interested and have experience in some or all of the following: distributed systems, cloud environments (EC2, Azure, GCE), algorithms (sampling, approximation), Java / Scala, Postgres / Spark / Impala, Pig / Hive.

You should be able to work well in team settings — this includes collaboratively writing code, publishing papers, contributing to the patenting process, and working with industry partners for deployment, testing, and validation. Proven communication skills are essential to be successful.

Your background:

  • Background in data base systems / data infrastructure
  • Research background in database systems, distributed systems, or related fields
  • Some practical work experience in industry research or development
  • At least 5 year experience with Java
  • Experience with large code bases, particularly in open source
  • PhD in computer science, information systems or a related field preferred

To apply, please email Arnab [ firstname @ cse dot osu . edu ] with your (1) resume (2) link to one representative first author paper, and (3) examples of prior codebases you have contributed to (GitHub profile, JIRAs, etc.)
