Master Thesis - Hardware-in-the-Loop Demonstrator for Particle Detector Read Out

 Our team is working on integrated circuits for the read out of particle detectors. Our main goal is to serve a wide range of sensor types, which requires highly adjustable electronics with scaling power consumption based on performance. We consider the complete processing chain, including analog front end, digitization stage and digital signal processing. For detailed studies of all components as system, we want to build a demonstration and verification setup that incorporates our custom analog to digital converter (ADC), together with a front end and a Field-Programmable-Gate-Array (FPGA) for the digital content. Specific tasks are:

  • Setup of an arbitrary waveform generator as signal generator
  • Setup of the ADC with control software
  • Incorporating a FPGA as a hardware-in-the-loop model to be programmed and controlled by Matlab/Simulink
  • Integrating all stages with our already existent Matlab software and perform measurements to demonstrate the system’s performance

Your Profile:

  • Current Master studies at a university for Electrical Engineering, Physics or similar fields
  • First experience in Matlab/Simulink (MathWorks)
  • Knowledge of digital circuit description (VHDL/Verilog)
  • First experience with software-controlled lab equipment
  • Good English capabilities and preferably good knowledge of German

Please apply for the position even if you do not have all the required skills and knowledge.

Our Offer:

We work on the very latest issues that impact our society and are offering you the chance to actively help in shaping the change! We support you in your work with:

  • Small, highly motivated working group where your contribution is highly valued
  • Continuous scientific mentoring by your scientific advisor as well as a close integration in the international research group
  • Work within one of the largest research centers in Europe
  • Ideal conditions for gaining practical experience alongside your studies
  • Excellent scientific and technical infrastructure
  • The possibility to partially work from home
  • Flexible working hours as well as a reasonable remuneration

The position is fixed for a limited time, including the introduction phase and the time to write your thesis (max. 9 months in total).

We welcome applications from people with diverse backgrounds, e.g. in terms of age, gender, disability, sexual orientation / identity, and social, ethnic and religious origin. A diverse and inclusive working environment with equal opportunities in which everyone can realize their potential is important to us.

We look forward to receiving your application. The job will be advertised until the position has been successfully filled. You should therefore submit your application as soon as possible.
