HEPHY, Vienna - Austria

My work includes the simulation of detector layouts for future experiments like the upcoming upgrade of the CMS Tracker for the SLHC accelerator and the next generation International Linear Collider. This is done with LiC Detector Toy, a fast simulation tool for charged tracks based on MATLAB. I will be responsible for the programming parts of the online data acquisition for a test beam setup at DESY and the subsequent analysis of the obtained data. There a first prototype of a silicon external layer for the ILD experiment will be tested using the C++ based LCIO framework, which is the common data model for linear collider detector studies. In addition I will undertake the task of the analyses of various test beams with silicon microstrip sensors.
