Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:

Are you ready to take responsibility for data acquisition at the Terabit scale, at the limit of currently available technology? Are you familiar with large multi-developer FPGA firmware projects? Then join the Online team of the LHCb. CERN, take part!


Firmware Engineer specializing in Data Acquisition in the Experimental Physics Department (EP), LHCb Computing Group (LBC).

The LHCb experiment will enter a new exciting phase of data-taking in 2021. Reading out every single bunch-crossing of the LHC will result in an unprecedented data-rate of 40 Terabit/s. This readout system employs a single type of custom-built FPGA powered readout-module. About 500 such modules are integrated with latest-generation server computers connected to the highest bandwidth-data acquisition system built to this day. Operating at the limit of currently available technology, every bit counts and firmware and software must be designed accordingly. At the same time data is very valuable and the overall system is complex, thus reliability and maintainability of the data acquisition software and firmware are crucial for the success of LHCb.

You will join:

.The Physics (EP) Department that carries out basic research in the field of experimental and theoretical particle physics. It aims at providing a stimulating scientific atmosphere and remains an important reference centre for the European physics community. It contributes to the education and training of young scientists.

.The LHCb Computing Group (LBC) which is supporting the Large Hadron Collider Beauty experiment (LHCb), an experiment set up to explore what happened after the Big Bang that allowed matter to survive and build the Universe we inhabit today.

.Within the LBC group you will join the Online team, which is the main team responsible for all aspects of data movement and handling, controls and monitoring, and IT infrastructure of the LHCb experiment. We are also the main player in the global LHCb detector operations.


As a Firmware Engineer in the LBC group, you will play an important role in the development, implementation, commissioning and operation of the LHCb Data Acquisition system.

You will:

.Be responsible for the common part of the readout system implemented in high-end FPGAs and very high-performance servers connected by a high-speed local area network; this includes an important part of the FPGA firmware (written in VHDL) and the associated Linux kernel drivers.

.Take a leading role in the integration of sub-detector firmware and in the integration of the readout-modules in the overall data acquisition system for which the LBC group is also the main responsible.

.Achieve the commissioning of the upgrade of the LHCb data acquisition.

.Assist users and other developers in the integration of their own data acquisition into LHCb.
