The LHCb experiment will enter a new exciting phase of data-taking in 2021. 

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.
The experience required for this post is:
* Demonstrated experience in high-speed digital design and programming of FPGAs.
* Experience with data acquisition systems.
* Experience with working in a distributed development team.

The technical competencies required for this post are:
* Development and configuration of online software for data acquisition.
* Use of scientific and engineering software packages: VHDL, C, C++.
* Digital circuit design, modelling and simulation.
* Digital circuit testing and measurement techniques.
