Port d'Informació Científica (PIC, http://www.pic.es ) is searching for computer scientists, software engineers or science graduates motivated to work in e-infrastructure for international astroparticle research projects.
PIC participates in the MAGIC ( https://magic.mpp.mpg.de) and CTA ( https://www.cta-observatory.org) Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes (IACTs) that detect very high energy gamma rays (VHE). MAGIC has been in the scientific exploitation phase for more than 15 years. CTA is the reference project for the next generation of IACTs and it is considered the highest priority in the European astroparticles (ASPERA) and astrophysics (Astronet) road maps. In addition, CTA is a "landmark" of the roadmap of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI).
The successful applicant will participate in the development and operation of the data management infrastructure for the MAGIC and CTA experiments including, but not limited to, the prototyping of data services within the Data Lake infrastructure being developed within the ESCAPE EU H2020 project (http://www.escape2020.eu)
Degree and area of specialization
BSc in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, or related fields.
● GNU/Linux administration experience.

Experience in any of the following is a plus
● Configuration management systems and automated server deployment.
● Distributed computing or HPC (e.g., cluster, grid, or cloud computing)
● Server deployment and orchestration in Cloud environments.
The recruiting center will be the Institut de Física d'Altes Energies (IFAE). The place of work will be the headquarters of PIC at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. The contract is funded by ERDF(FEDER) funds as well as by the Ministry of Science and Innovation for the project PID2019-107847RB-C41 "Gamma Ray Astronomy with MAGIC and CTA-North, Project 2 - contributions of IFAE" from the State R&D Program Oriented to the Challenges of the Society. The contract will be for 1 year, including a 3 month trial period, renewable up to an additional year depending on mutual satisfaction and availability of funds.
Salary Range: between 27.000 and 33.000 € yearly gross, depending on experience.
IFAE is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace, and we welcome
applications from all qualified candidates. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
PIC provides a flexible work environment and promotes a proactive goal-oriented approach in the workplace.
PIC is a scientific-technological center located in the UAB University campus near Barcelona and it is maintained through a collaboration agreement between the research centers IFAE ( http://www.ifae.es ) and CIEMAT ( http://www.ciemat.es ).
PIC uses distributed high throughput computing technologies including clusters, Grid, Cloud and Big Data, to support the scientific mission of various international collaborations in the field of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology doing data-intensive research.
Providing data processing capacity at the level of 8000 cpu cores, 10 Petabytes of disk and 25 Petabytes of tape, PIC is a world-wide recognized center for scientific data processing and High Throughput Computing. It is the main computing center in Spain for the CERN LHC particle accelerator, a Science Data Center for the ESA Euclid satellite mission and the main data repository for the MAGIC and PAU astrophysics experiments.
