The Chair of Process and Data Science, headed by Prof. Wil van der Aalst, is a new research facility at RWTHTH that focuses on the interaction of processes and data. PADS represents RWTH's ambitions in the field of Data Science and is supported by Alexander-von-Humboldt-Professorship. PADS encompasses all topics in which discrete processes are analysed, redesigned and / or supported in a data-driven way. Process-centricity is a combination of data science techniques such as machine learning, data mining, visualisation and Big Data Infrastructures. The focus is on process mining including process discovery, conformance testing, performance analysis, predictive analytics, operations support and process improvement. This is combined with related disciplines such as operations research, algorithms, discrete event simulation, business process management and workflow automation. The chair holder is the founder of the process mining discipline and one of the world's leading computer scientists. His ambition is to realise scientific breakthroughs that help organisations derive business and societal value from event data. Investments from RWTH, the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology make it possible to realise this. Software development plays a key role in the success of our group. We are therefore looking for talented software engineers who specialise in Data Science.
