Ph.D. Positions at Aalborg University in Denmark

(taken from

Center for Data-Intensive Systems, Daisy (, has
several fully funded Ph.D. positions available.

The positions concern research in data management technologies that
aim to allow energy distribution infrastructures to manage higher
amounts of renewable energy and to better balance supply and demand.
The production of renewable energy depends on external factors such as
wind and sunlight. Hence, available energy from renewable sources can
only be predicted, not planned, This renders it challenging for energy
distributors to efficiently accommodate renewable energy sources.

The research will explore the use of so-called micro requests for
controlling demand and supply at the level of individual households.
The research calls for advanced, distributed aggregation of requests
as well as novel forecasting techniques. Key technology areas include:
cloud and distributed computing, real-time data warehousing, sensor
and stream data management, indexing, and query processing.

With more than 20 members, Daisy provides a very active research
environment that is well integrated into the global database research
community. Aalborg is the center of a beautiful region of Denmark,
with nice beaches, unique nature, and clean air.

The monthly salary is approximately DKK 24,000 before taxes (EUR 1
approximately equals DKK 7.5).

An M.S. in Computer Science or a closely related field from a
recognized institution and with excellent results. The ideal candidate
has a strong background in databases, algorithms, and data structures.

Very good communication skills in English, oral as well as written.

The application deadline is December 15, 2009.
