We offer a position to work in European projects based on improving the eco-efficiency and competitiveness of process industries (SPIRE sector) together with a dedicated team.

The candidate is expected to have experience developing process monitoring software tools oriented to clients (decission support systems). The main objective is to ensure an appropriate monitoring of KPI designing monitoring systems based on low-cost sensors and taking advantage of the already installed instrumentation in order to minimise the initial inversion.

He/She will be involved in the development of holistic software tools which will be able to support process control decision considering the upstream and downstream of different processes with the aim of optimising the overall energy and environmental performance of intensive energy industries. In addition, the selected candidate will participate in the comprehensive description of the data acquisition and treatment system (ETL) including sample calculations (e.g., parameters to be recorded, frequency of measurement, data averaging time, reporting units, recording process) and sensors deployment.

Benefits

We offer a permanent position for you to join a high-tech internationally recognized Research Centre in which your talent, passion and expertise will be fostered. Our flexible and modern working environment offers you a range of possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. This is your opportunity to contribute to the technology that will enable a sustainable society for tomorrow, taking part of a young team, with high development potential in a highly collaborative working environment.

In addition to Excellence, CIRCE’s values are based on Compromise, Integrity, Respect and Persons Development. In this line, CIRCE is committed to employ disabled individuals and encourages them to apply. Furthermore, CIRCE is aiming for a higher proportion of women in technology and science, so we ask qualified female technologists and scientists to apply. Finally, CIRCE supports a family-friendly workspace. Therefore, applicants with children are highly welcome.

Gross Salary: 30.000 - 39.000€
