We, the faculty in the DSRG group, are always looking for bright, motivated, and hard-working graduate and undergraduate students to join our group and work on projects with us to develop data-centric solutions and systems that solve pressing problems in healthcare, medicine, science or engineering with societal impact. Currently active project and research areas include, but are not limited to, large-scale data management, scalable data mining and discovery, annotation management for scientific applications, high velocity data stream processing, map-reduce infrastructures, intelligent event analytics, and interactive data exploration.
Prof. Rundensteiner currently has several openings for funded research positions for bright undergraduate students (American citizens or US residents only) funded by the NSF REU program for 2013/2014. The project centers around scalable event detection in data streams in applications from mobile object tracking to business intelligence. Skills required are software engineering and maturity in programming.
