SOLEIL is the French national synchrotron facility, located on the Saclay Plateau near Paris. It is a multi-disciplinary instrument and a research laboratory, whose mission is to run research programs using synchrotron radiation, to develop state-of-the-art instrumentation on the beamlines, and to make those available to the scientific community. SOLEIL, a unique tool for both academic research and industrial applications across a wide range of disciplines including physics, biology, chemistry etc., is used by over 5 000 researchers coming from France and abroad. The facility is a “public” company employing about 500 people, founded by the CNRS and the CEA, and partner of the Paris-Saclay University.

This position is open in the frame of the European project ExPaNDS[i], in which SOLEIL is actively involved. Funded for a period of 3 years from 01/09/2019 to 31/08/2022, it aims to promote open science and to federate within the framework of EOSC[ii] the services provided by the national Neutron and Synchrotron infrastructures: data catalog, remote data analysis services. Indeed, their production of scientific data evolves significantly both in complexity and in volume, implying a substantial change in the management and processing of data.

This mission will be carried out under the supervision of Majid Ounsy (majid.ounsy@synchrotron-soleil.fr), co-leader of the "data analysis services" tasks of the ExPaNDS project.

I Mission

One of the main objectives of the ExPaNDS project is the development of a software platform based on a cloud-type microservices architecture, accessible via a web portal and allowing remote access to scientific data catalogs as well as to offices. virtual machines presenting users of the platform with pre-packaged calculation codes for processing this data (Notebooks, containerized Docker applications).Your main function will be to ensure the technical implementation of the solutions adopted by the ExPaNDS project for access to experimental data.You will work on the SOLEIL site, in close collaboration with software and database engineers from SOLEIL and other facilities involved in the ExPaNDS project.

II Responsibilities and tasks

During the European ExPaNDS project:

III Education and experience

This job is intended for a holder of an engineer level diploma, specialized in software development, scientific computing or equivalent, with 2 to 5 years of professional experience.
