IPE 20-20 Internship: A Web-based Orchestration Tool for Scientific Control Systems of Large-Scale Experiments

Organizational unit

Institute for Data Processing and Electronics (IPE)

Job description

Very complex control systems are employed by large-scale scientific experiments. Hundreds thousands of process variables are continuously monitored to ensure safety and correct experimental environment. The traditional way of operating such systems is inefficient in terms of effort required to configure, maintain, and scale them. We aim to accelerate and ease these operations by utilizing novel cloud computing technologies in the backbone and web technologies as an interface for control engineers. The announced position is a part of effort to build a new web-based configuration interface for control engineers. This web application provides an interface to configure and orchestrate control system servers e.g. EPICS and to deploy them on a private cloud powered by OpenShift. You will contribute both back-end and front-end software to provide a convenient interface for control engineers to configure and maintain a large list of process variables.

Personal qualification

  • Familiar with cloud computing technologies, specifically docker containers.
  • Good programming skills and preferably prior experience in web technologies. Experience in RESTful APIs, TypeScript/JavaScript and Python is highly appreciated.
