Big Data Architect for large scale experiment (CTA)

The Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) is the next generation ground-based observatory for gamma-ray astronomy at very-high energies. With more than 100 telescopes located in the northern and southern hemispheres, CTA will be the world’s largest and most sensitive high-energy gamma-ray observatory. We expect to generate 4 PB of data per year that needs to be stored.

The goal of the internship is :
- to implement an archival/storage solution for CTA’s data using mainly CERN technology.
- to evaluate pros and cons of the solution regarding CTA requirements

The trainee will be in contact with CERN in Geneva, and Data center across Europe (Berlin, Barcelona, ..)
