Job Offer: Research Assistant (m/f) in the Field of Performance & Virtualization


The fortiss institute at the Technical University of Munich offers a job as a research assistant at the Department of Information Systems in the Group Performance & Virtualization

Topic - Performance & Virtualization:

Large software systems such as Google and Amazon spend a lot of energy to offer their users a positive user experience. An important aspect for the users of such systems is the perceived response time. If a service responds too slowly, the user leaves the system and a company loses revenue. Our research group is therefore concerned with ensuring the performance (in terms of response time, throughput, and resource consumption) of complex software systems. The focus is on the one hand resource and energy efficiency of software and on the other hand to ensure the user experience in changing environmental conditions or seasonal fluctuations (e.g. Christmas sales).
