Vacant position for a Full Professor Database Technology in section Information Systems
Database Technology plays a key role in data science (research, education, and valorization). Database Technology as a discipline is represented by internationally well-recognized and influential researchers, but it is currently still a too small niche within the TU/e (and DSC/e) and therefore requires further strengthening given its importance. Database Technology is now embedded within the Web Engineering (WE) group. The WE group currently focuses on database technology, data engineering and personalization and adaptation.
Given the growth of data science at TU/e, it is essential to have a chair on Database Technology. Conducting data science is impossible without studying Database Technology: how to structure, store, select and retrieve data is at the very core of data science and therefore essential. A dedicated Database Technology research group led by a full-professor focusing completely on Database Technology is necessary.
The appointment of a new professor in Database Technology will complete the transition process towards a group focused entirely on database technology and engineering, and a renaming to Database Technology (DT).
