FAIR research infrastructures are key to realize the ambitions of the Open Science plans of our national and international funding bodies. For a wide variety of scientific disciplines, these systems face increasingly harder technical requirements and complex designs: the need to provide interoperability while dealing with larger, more complex, and fastly changing data, cope with highly heterogeneous data, handle both open and privacy-sensitive or copyright-sensitive research data, integrate supercomputing and trusted third party facilities, etc. At the same time, these technical requirements rapidly change as research communities evolve and new forms of consensus need to be found. We are looking for an assistant professor on FAIR research data and open science research infrastructures that feels at home in this challenging landscape. The ideal candidate has a proven track record in the design of research infrastructure, has a network in the FAIR data community and has a strong record of multidisciplinary collaboration, for example by having co-authored with colleagues from other disciplines than computer science.
We are looking for a colleague who is a leader in the field, and can contribute to a stream of high quality publications in this area, acquire external research grants, conduct excellent teaching, and act as a bridge builder to other research groups in and outside the department. The position comes with a career path to a tenured position after 1.5 years.Your duties
