The ESRF is a multinational research institute, situated in Grenoble, 
France and financed by 20 countries mostly European. It operates a 
powerful synchrotron X-ray source with some 30 beamlines (instruments) 
covering a wide range of scientific research in fields such as biology 
and medicine, chemistry, earth and environmental sciences, materials and 
surface science, and physics. The ESRF employs about 600 staff and is 
organized as a French /société civil./


/Within the Instrumentation Services and Development Division, the 
Software Group is now seeking to recruit a:/

  Software Developer (m/f)

permanent contract


The ESRF is in the process of a major upgrade of the accelerator source 
and of several beamlines. In particular, the Upgrade Programme has 
created a heavy demand for data visualisation and analysis due to the 
massive data flow coming from the new detectors. The next generation of 
experiments will rely on both advanced parallelised algorithms for data 
analysis and high performance tools for data visualization.

You will join the /Data Analysis Unit/ in the Software Group of the ISDD 
and will develop software for data analysis and visualization. You will 
be expected to:

  * develop and maintain software and graphical user interfaces for
    visualizing scientific data
  * help develop a long term strategy for the visualization and analysis
    of data (online and offline)
  * contribute to the general effort of adapting existing software and
    developing new solutions for data analysis

You will need to be able to understand data analysis requirements and 
propose working solutions.


The candidate should have a higher university degree (Master, MSc, DESS, 
Diplom, Diploma, Ingeniera Superior, Licenciatura, Laurea or equivalent) 
in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Bioinformatics, 
Engineering or related areas. Applicants must have at least 3 years of 
experience in scientific programming in the fields of data analysis and 

The candidate must have good knowledge of OpenGL and the OpenGL Shading 
Language or similar visualisation libraries. Experience in data 
analysis, especially of large datasets is highly desirable, particularly 
using e.g. OpenCL, CUDA. Knowledge of one high level programming 
language (Python, Matlab, ...), a high-level graphics library (VTK ,...) 
and one low level language (C, C++, ...) will be considered assets in 
addition to competence in using development tools for compilation, 
distribution and code management. Proven contributions to open source 
projects will also be appreciated.

The successful candidate should be able to work independently as well as 
in multidisciplinary teams. Good English communication and presentation 
skills are required.

Further information on the post can be obtained from Andy Götz 
(andy.gotz at esrf.fr <mailto:gotz at esrf.fr>) and/or Claudio Ferrero 
(ferrero at esrf.fr).
