- A stimulating research environment in an expanding group.
  The candidate will be integrated in the WIT laboratory of the Department of
  Computer and Decision Engineering (CoDE). The CoDE department has a track
  record of cutting-edge research in big data processing, data management,
  business intelligence, mobility data management, stream processing, swarm
  robotics, optimization and decision engineering and is well-equipped for
  research in these areas. The department strives for excellence in its research
  and education, as witnessed by its two ERC grant holders, the organization of
  the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Big Data Management and Analytics, and
  Joint Doctorate College on Information Technologies for Business Intelligence.

- An interesting city to work in.  The ULB is located in Brussels,
  Belgium --- the Capital of Europe. Bustling with activity and
  undeniably multilingual, Brussels offers both the advantages of a
  culturally rich capital and the comforts of a friendly, accessible,
  city. Accommodation is reasonably priced compared to Paris or
  London, and the city boasts an extensive public transportation
  network. It is home to the offices of the European Union and NATO
  and innumerable multinational companies, and is also at the heart of
  Belgium's economic, political and cultural life. Located 1 hour 25
  minutes from Paris, 1 hour 30 minutes from Amsterdam and 1 hour 51
  from London, Brussels offers all the advantages of a cosmopolitan
  city on a human scale.  In this green city, a true crossroads and
  place of exchange, where the cuisine and music of the whole world
  meet and mix, culture enthusiasts will have almost too much choice
  in terms of music and cinema festivals, Brussels overflows with
  museums, concert halls and theatres.
