Faculty of Science
The University of Amsterdam
(UvA) is the Netherlands' largest university, offering the widest range of academic programmes. At the UvA, 42,000 students, 6,000 staff members and 3,000 PhD candidates study and work in a diverse range of fields, connected by a culture of curiosity.
The Faculty of Science
(FNWI) has a student body of around 8,000, as well as 1,800 members of staff working in education, research or support services. Researchers and students at the Faculty of Science are fascinated by every aspect of how the world works, be it elementary particles, the birth of the universe or the functioning of the brain.
The mission of the Informatics Institute
(IvI) is to perform curiosity-driven and use-inspired fundamental research in Computer Science. The main research themes are Artificial Intelligence, Computational Science and Systems and Network Engineering. Our research involves complex information systems at large, with a focus on collaborative, data driven, computational and intelligent systems, all with a strong interactive component.
You will be embedded in the MultiScale Networked Systems
(MNS) group, part of the Informatics Institute at the University of Amsterdam. The group focuses its research on the fundamental architectural problems that arise from the interconnection of systems and of data flows and multiscale systems. E.g. cloud systems or clusters that define themselves by their dynamic size and scale, and on the network connecting them. We look at the emerging architectures that can support the operations of the future Internet. More information can be found here
