Introduction

The Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), situated in Grenoble, France, is Europe’s leading research facility for fundamental research using neutrons. The ILL operates the brightest neutron source in the world and hosts over 2000 visits by scientists per year, who come to carry out world-class research in a wide variety of scientific fields. Funded primarily by its three founder members, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, the ILL has also signed scientific collaboration agreements with 10 other countries. Our Scientific Computing group is currently looking for a Software Developer (M/F).

Job description

The mission of the Scientific Computing group is to develop and support the data reduction and analysis software that enables visiting scientists to exploit their scattering data effectively during experiments. Working in a team of scientists and software engineers, you will:

  • take charge of the integration of new functionalities into the software MDANSE, which is used to analyse molecular dynamics trajectories to derive physical quantities for isotropic materials
  • contribute to the investigation into how the ASE (Atomic Simulation Environment) and PhonoPy can be used to estimate the phonon dispersion relations in crystalline materials
  • participate in the maintenance of FullProf, a suite dedicated to the treatment of x-ray and neutron diffraction data
  • interact with a group of expert users to gather all necessary requirements prior to starting the coding tasks
  • perform a complete survey of the available mathematical and graphical libraries to be included in the various projects.

This position is part of the SINE2020 European project, whose main objective is the standardization and sharing of scientific software among different neutron and synchrotron facilities.

Notes

  • 36-month fixed-term contract
  • Medical fitness for work under ionising radiation is required.
  • Further information can be obtained by contacting the head of the Scientific Computing group: Dr. Paolo Mutti, email: (please do not send your application to this address).

Benefits
Generous company benefits (expatriation allowance), relocation assistance and language courses may be offered (for more information, please consult our employment conditions).

Requested Profile

Qualifications and experience

You have:

  • a master’s degree or a PhD in physics or applied mathematics with a strong interest in software development, or a degree in software engineering with an interest in complex physics problems
  • an in-depth knowledge of Python and C++ and a good knowledge of all modern programming techniques and tools
  • experience in GUI design would be an advantage.

Language skills
As an international research centre, we are particularly keen to ensure that we also attract applicants from outside France. You must have a sound knowledge of English and be willing to learn French (a language course will be paid for by the ILL). Knowledge of German would be an advantage.
