One Post-doctoral fellowship and 2 PhD Fellowship within BigData Analytics

A post-doctoral position within the area of BigData Analytics is available at the Department of Computer and Information Science (IDI), Faculty of Information Technology,Mathematics and Electrical Engineering (IME), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The postdoctoral position is for two years.

Our society has been overwhelmed with the explosion of information, where most data are available in digital form and the total amount of data grows exponentially. It isestimated that the amount of information will be doubled every ten to five years, and public information is becoming an increasingly important part of the informationinfrastructure for our society. Developing knowledge about and technology for modeling, storing, managing, searching, analyzing and protecting information is informationtechnology’s greatest challenge. Information has increasingly become important as a raw material for all development. The emergence of BigData as a research area is adirect consequence of this. The BigData research initiative was established by the Faculty for Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineeringto precisely address the related research and technological challenges incurred by the explosion of data in the society.

The research project officially starting in January 2014 will be organised in the following areas related to BigData:
- Data and Information Management
- Statistical Data Analysis and Prediction
- Search
- Machine Learning
- Bioinformatics

The BigData group’s research will primarily focus on two cases that have strong societal impact and address two strategically important thematic research areas: industry-relevant innovation, and improved healthcare for an aging society - spanning from mining the Web for trends to mining genomics and health record data for novel insights intoage-related diseases. Specifically, we will develop a computational and statistical framework dealing with all aspects of web mining towards providing good predictions ofsocial trends, and for mining genomics and health record data for novel insights into age-related diseases. Therefore, we are particularly interested in having applicants whoare competent and motivated to do research in the area of BigData Analytics.

The successful candidate will act as a liaison in a multidisciplinary team of leading scientists involved in the project. The selected post-doctoral fellow will also assist in PhDstudent supervision and a significant contribution in project applications for external funds is expected. The position represents an excellent opportunity for an individual todevelop his/her career and contribute to the development of a newly established project.
