Emploi type : Ingénieur-e en ingénierie logicielle
The person recruited will occupy a position of software engineer, dedicated to development in relation to the research projects of the LS2N PACCE team. The aim will be to provide technical support for setting up experiments with humans, and for exploiting the ensuing results. As many of these experiments involve mixed reality systems (augmented or virtual reality), specific skills in this field are expected. Secondarily, simple application development may be required (displaying tasks to be carried out on a computer or tablet, recording participants' actions, calculating and saving indicators). Lastly, the person recruited may be asked to participate in the analysis of experimental data (calculation of relevant indicators from raw data, and statistical analysis if required).
By way of illustration, current projects concern the study of the perception of vegetation in urban environments (in virtual reality) or the study of inter-individual differences in the ability to regain control of an autonomous vehicle (in simulation).
The person recruited will support a number of current and future projects. Tasks include
- Development of virtual environments and scripting of experiments in Unity
- HMI development in Python, C++ or equivalent
- Synchronized acquisition of data from external sensors (e.g. physiological)
- Carry out pilot tests to validate experimental designs in collaboration with researchers and, if necessary, assist in the conduct of experiments.
- Participate in data analysis
- Archiving and documenting projects to capitalize on existing knowledge
- Very good command of Unity
- Good knowledge of C++, Python, or equivalent
- Ability to work as part of a team in a multidisciplinary environment
Skills appreciated :
- Experience in conducting human experiments
- Experience in recording and analyzing physiological data
- Knowledge of data processing (visualization, statistics) using software such as R, Jasp, Statistica or Matlab
Contexte de travail
The Laboratoire des Sciences du Numérique de Nantes (LS2N) was created in January 2017 to meet the ambition of significantly raising the profile of digital science research in Nantes. This joint research unit is supervised by three higher education establishments (Université de Nantes, Centrale Nantes, IMT Atlantique/campus de Nantes), as well as CNRS and Inria. LS2N is the largest public research unit in Nantes and the Pays de la Loire region. LS2N employs over 500 people, half of whom are permanent staff, spread over 5 sites. However, the person recruited will mainly be based at Ecole Centrale de Nantes.
The PACCE team (Perception, Action, Cognition for Design and Ergonomics) is a multidisciplinary team defined by the central role of the human factor in system design. It is developing expertise in human modeling and human-system interaction. The fundamental issues addressed concern perception, movement control and cognition. Application issues concern cooperation with automated systems, the design of virtual environments and product design. Further information is available here: https://www.ls2n.fr/equipe/pacce/
The person recruited will work under the supervision of Franck Mars, CNRS Research Director and head of the PACCE team, in collaboration with the team's PhD students, post-docs and staff. Please do not hesitate to contact him for any further information (email@example.com).
Contraintes et risques
This position is not associated with any particular risk. Teleworking will be possible up to two days a week, depending on service constraints.
If applicable, the CNRS will cover part of the cost of a public transport pass.
