Engineer Position at LESIA - Observatoire de Paris

LESIA is responsible for the study and specification of on-ground data processing algorithms to derive light curves from PLATO observations. At this stage of the project, the main components of the on-ground data processing chains are identified, but the corresponding algorithms have to be studied in detail, evaluations of the expected performance have to be made, and the algorithms need to be translated into documentation that will be used to develop the data processing pipeline itself.

The successful candidate will join a team made up of several LESIA researchers and engineers involved in the PLATO space mission, and will benefit from the expertise of a team of researchers and engineers from different European countries (France, Portugal, Germany, United Kingdom) with solid experience in space missions CoRoT, Kepler and GAIA.

The position is initially for one year and is renewable for an additional year. The position is open at the earliest from 1st November 2020. The salary level corresponds to the CNRS IR (Ingenieur de Recherche) fixed-term contract salary scale and depends on the level of the diploma and experience. The successful candidate would work at the LESIA-Observatoire de Paris, at the Meudon site (92, Haut de Seine, France).
