If by "consciousness", you mean your memories and feelings about self-identity, I find it hard to believe that it continues in any way after death. Whether that's end of simulation or just in-simulation death, the coherence of your history, beliefs, and experiencing-process goes away.
It's possible that you'll be archived, but unless they decide to extend that sim, rather than re-running it or modifying it and running a new sim, it won't contain you.
I disagree with the premise that a simulation containing conscious beings would be created for mere reasons of information gathering. It wouldn't be ethical.
