The Hopkins Storage Systems Lab (HSSL) is dedicated to building storage and database systems that address emerging requirements in scientific, high-performance, and distributed computing. Towards these goals, the lab conducts research into: scientific data management, scalable storage systems, data archival and preservation, and storage security.
New PhD Students: The Hopkins Storage Systems lab is seeking talented students in the areas of storage systems, operating systems, secure systems, and high-performance computing to join the lab as PhD students. PhD students are typically fully supported--tuition, stipend, and health insurance--by Teaching or Research Assistantships. Please refer to the Department's Graduate Application Information and apply through the University's Online Application. Indicate Randal Burns as a Faculty member of interest in your application and either Storage and Database Systems or Operating Systems as your areas of interest.
