Interested in a PhD in Big Data / Data Science / Data-Centric Systems?
Within the Department of Computer Science at Brown University we are currently looking for strong students with system-building skills and out-of-the box thinking capabilities to develop the next generation of Big Data management systems. Brown's database group is one of the world-leading groups in systems-oriented database research, known for example through the H-Store, C-Store, SciDB, Aurora and Borealis systems. The ivy league university in general ranks amongst the top 20 places in the US for computer science and provides a nice work/life balance through its affordable living cost (important for PhD salaries), student culture, amazing restaurants, closeness to downtown Providence, as well as proximity to other bigger cities (Boston - 45min with the train, New York - 3h with bus or train).
If your are interested, please apply until December 15 at http://www.cs.brown.edu/grad/doctoral/.
