LPC2E is a joint research unit of CNRS, the University of Orléans and CNES. The laboratory has around 80 people including 29 researchers and teacher-researchers, 36 permanent and non-permanent IT and 15 doctoral and post-doctoral students.
Within the Ground / Airplane / Balloon instrumental pole, the instrument development expert will participate in the study, production and implementation of gas measurement and aerosol analysis instruments in atmosphere, used in the laboratory or on experimental platforms at ground level, or on board airborne platforms (balloon, drone, plane, etc.). These sensors implement different physical principles (electrochemistry, light diffusion, absorption spectroscopy).
Opportunities to benefit from training through the University.
The main mission of the engineer will be to study and adapt the instrumentation to the measurement conditions encountered on board the various airborne vectors, or on the ground under potentially severe conditions (extreme temperatures, sandy, volcanic environments, etc.)
- Design all or part of a scientific measuring instrument to meet the needs of a scientific project.
- Perform sizing and performance calculations.
- Write specifications and definitions.
- Ensure the realization and guarantee the operational safety
- Consult with suppliers to guide the choice of materials and processes.
- Develop procedures for qualifying the instrument, perform tests and calibrations, produce user manuals.
Remuneration depending on qualifications and experience from € 25,000 to € 30,000 gross per year.
Contract length : 1 year renewable
- Master or Magistère in Physics or Measurement Sciences.
- Engineer in physics or instrumentation.
- Doctorate in experimental physics.
