The duration of the contract is determined by the DFG-funded project "Declarative Performance for Datalog". The project aims at integrating true de-clarative performance in Datalog engines: Without any manual user intervention, a Datalog engine should be able to translate a declarative program into a highly optimized execution plan. To do so, you are supposed to step-wise integrate a set of analytical and empirical optimizations techniques into a state-of-the-art Datalog execution engine and evaluate their effectiveness.
The position is initially limited in time and will end after a period of 3 years. The successful applicant is expected to work on her or his PhD thesis during that time.
