Company Description

At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on https:// home.cern.

Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.

Job Description

The Beam Instrumentation (BI) group is in charge of the instrumentation for beam parameters across the Accelerator Complex. Large amounts of data are produced either as beam measurements or as information related to the system components (e.g. mechanics, analog/digital electronics).

BI has developed a framework to systematically analyze this data, based on existing tools (e.g. Spark based NXCALS logging system, Python and its associated data analysis libraries, and Openshift and Django for application development)

You will work in the improvements of the tools to include more anomaly detection algorithms, flexible scheduling of jobs and improved notification of relevant results. This will be done in collaboration with other groups with similar needs.

You will also work on specific analysis for Beam Position Monitors (BPM) such as time synchronization integrity checks, tracking of orbit drifts or optical lines power monitoring.

Qualifications

Eligibility criteria:

  • You are a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State;
  • You have a Master's degree and between 2 and 6 years' experience or PhD with up to 3 years of relevant experience in software development for data analytics or other related field;
  • You should have a working knowledge of English or French.
  • Skills and/or knowledge:

  • Excellent knowledge of Python programming;
  • Good knowledge of data analysis techniques and tools;
  • Knowledge of Linux;
  • Knowledge of electronics systems or beam instrumentation would be an asset.
  • Additional Information

    What we offer:

  • An employment contract of in principle 24 months, with a possible extension up to 36 months;
  • On-the-job and formal training at CERN as well as in-house language courses for English and/or French;
