we are hiring!

The Data-Intensive Applications and Systems laboratory at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) seeks highly motivated post-doctoral researchers with proven scientific excellence in the areas of just-in-time query processing, parallel and distributed data management, and data management systems on emerging hardware. Successful candidates are passionate about inventing, building, and publishing quality database systems research. A strong publication record and hands-on experience in system development are especially important. See full announcement here.

Data Intensive Applications & Systems Lab

Despite recent technological advances both in the data management and in computer architecture domains, our ability to analyze data still falls behind the unstoppable data collection rates. Data-intensive applications are increasingly more demanding in sophisticated algorithms to store, manage, and interpret data.
Research in DIAS lab focuses on addressing these challenges by adapting data management technology to computer architecture trends, enabling discoveries in scientific domains through automating physical database design and revolutionizing exploration algorithms in very large data repositories.
