Large-Instrument manager

(Engineer  - duration 18 months)


Starting March 2019


Scientific context:

The Interuniversity Laboratory of Atmospheric Systems (LISA) is located in the premises of the University Paris-Est Créteil (Val-de-Marne). LISA is a mixed unit of University Paris-Est Creteil, University Paris Diderot and CNRS (UMR 7583), comprising up to date 135 staff members. It is part of the Observatory of Sciences of the Universe EFLUVE and the Federation IPSL. The main research interests are the understanding of the functioning of terrestrial and planetary atmospheres, the impacts related to the modification of the composition of the atmosphere by human activities, but also the study of the origins of life in the solar system requiring the development of complex instruments operating in extreme environments.

The profile:

The Engineer in Instrument Operations Studies will join the Instrumentation Pole of the Technical Department of the laboratory where 2 research engineers are assigned, with 4 design engineers and 1 technician.

The Instrumentation Pole is in charge of maintaining, developing and optimizing LISA's research instruments, both for experiments for field measurements (soil, balloon, airplane, satellite, etc.) , and for measurements in the environments of other objects of the Solar System (Mars, Comet, etc.). This Pole brings together all the engineering professions necessary for instrumental design and its implementation. More precisely, the engineer of studies in Exploitation Instrument will join the technical team in charge of the implementation of the instrumentation of the CESAM platform (Experimental Chamber of Multiphase Atmospheric Simulation), endorsed as National facility by CNRS-INSU. This one is dedicated to the study of the processes such as secondary aerosol formation or multiphasic reactivity gaseous compounds.

The mission

The Large-Instrument Manager will integrate the team (a research engineer and a research engineer from the Instrumentation Pole) in charge of the CESAM platform. This one brings together the CESAM chamber, labeled "national instrument", as well as the CSA atmospheric simulation chamber. He/she will operate and actively participate in the optimization and development of the instrumentation associated with this experimental platform.


- Manage the maintenance schedule of equipment associated with the CESAM platform,

- Operate instruments on the CESAM platform,

- Participate in setting up measurement campaigns and defining new ones experimental protocols,

- Write notes on the experimental protocols put in place,

- Participate in measurement campaigns,

- Diagnose and treat common operating anomalies, manage the operations of maintenance in relation with the suppliers,

- Participate in the optimization, calibration and adjustment of equipment,

- Participate in the development of the instrumentation associated with the CESAM platform,

- Get training on the principles and the implementation of the experimental devices in establishing the protocols for maintenance and implementation of the instruments,

- Monitor the evolution of hygiene and safety rules and ensure their application.


- Mastery of engineering techniques in the field of the study of physico-chemical processes atmospheric chemicals,

- Good knowledge of the physico-chemistry of the atmosphere,

- Good knowledge of the instrumentation used for the physicochemical measurements of the atmosphere (gas and aerosols),

- Good knowledge of the mathematical and computer tools needed to manage the instruments and the exploitation of the results,

- Good knowledge of quality concepts,

- General knowledge of health and safety regulations,

- Knowledge of technical English of the field,

Diploma required

- Master in Instrumentation

- General degree in instrumentation


- From the order of 2,200 to 2,500 euros gross monthly according to professional experience (excluding refunds and benefits)
