Annoucement, Open position 


Instrumentation and metrology research engineer for mobile greenhouse gas measurements: laboratory and field operations


16 months term contract


The Laboratory for Sciences of Climate and the Environment (LSCE) is looking for a qualified and motivated Instrumentation and metrology research engineer to support its activities in the context of mobile measurement campaigns aiming at estimating fluxes of CO2 and other greenhouse gases.



LSCE ( is a joint research unit of the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), CNRS and UVSQ. Its 250 staff are dedicated to measurement and modeling of climate change and greenhouse gas (GHG) fluxes. Besides long term measurements in the context of the ICOS (Integrated Carbon Observing System) European research infrastructure, the ICOS-RAMCES team is involved in several project to detect and quantify GHG sources and sinks using novel instrumentation, platforms and approaches. Airborne applications involving UAV aim at quantifying emissions from site to landscape to regional scale and to identify emission ratio of pollutants for anthropogenic emissions. Ship-borne measurements will extend the coverage of the in situ measurement network and support the estimation of marine GHG fluxes.

The position is based in the ICOS team at LSCE in Saclay.


Responsibilities and tasks

-       Characterization and validation of CO2 and CH4  in situ sensors for airborne/mobile operations

-       Design of sensor system of CO2 and CH4 sensor on mobile platform campaigns (involving a range of unmanned aerial systems from light platforms to helicopters)

-       Deployment of the measurement systems on test targets; processing, validation and analysis of CO2 and CH4 data collected in Cyprus

-       Participate to the operational sensor test and validation activities at ICOS ATC

-       Evaluating the added value of drones measurements for local, regional and global estimations of GHG emissions



PhD or engineering degree with experience in atmospheric measurements and/or greenhouse gas fluxes estimation, with a relevant experience in operating high-precision atmospheric composition analyzers.


For more information, please contact: Jean-Daniel Paris,


To apply, please send CV and cover letter to before 30 April 2017.


The position is expected to start: 3rd July 2017.
