SOLEIL is the French national synchrotron facility, located on the Saclay Plateau near Paris. It is a multi-disciplinary instrument and research laboratory whose mission is to conduct research using synchrotron radiation, to develop cutting edge instrumentation on the beamlines, and to make these developments available to the scientific community. SOLEIL synchrotron, a unique tool for both academic research and industrial applications across a wide range of disciplines including physics, biology, chemistry etc., opened in 2008. It is used annually by thousands researchers from France and abroad. SOLEIL is based on a synchrotron source that is state-of-the-art both in terms of brilliance and stability. This large scale facility, a partner of the Université Paris Saclay, is a “publically owned” private company, founded by the CNRS and the CEA.

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.

I Mission:

Your main function will be to ensure the technical implementation of the solutions adopted by the ExPaNDS project for the publication of experimental data according to FAIR principles, and the analysis of these data remotely in line with the constraints specific to the environment. of SOLEIL.

You will work on the SOLEIL site, in close collaboration with scientific software and database engineers from SOLEIL and other installations involved in the ExPaNDS project. In particular, you will benefit from the achievements of the European PaNOSC[i] project and the JRA2 activity of the European CalipsoPlus[ii] 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.
