As part of the adaptation of existing seismometers and the development of new sensors, strengthen the technical team composed of a project manager, 4 engineers: electronics, IT, AIV / AIT, and mechanics. These activities range from the design of mechanical sub-assemblies and / or tooling to model qualification and acceptance tests.
In addition, the team has extensive testing resources (two clean rooms, ISO6 and ISO7, a thermal vacuum chamber, a seismic pillar), as well as the associated instrumentation (electronics, mechanics, vacuum, optics, etc.). The second part consists of ensuring that all the testing resources are operational. The candidate will steer the actions to be taken, and will have the support of all team members.
Finally, and more occasionally, the team develops test benches for in-situ instrumentation for which technical support is necessary upstream of the deployment phase in the field. The candidate may be involved in this context.


- Design, plan and produce mechanical flight sub-assemblies (Sismobox for the FSS lunar project - Farside Seismic Suite, optical seismometer sub-assembly - PIONEERS) but also test means (Ground Support Equipments (GSE) ) giving flexibility in the tests and allowing to meet a maximum of technical and scientific specifications.
- Realization of manufacturing files, technical specifications, contacts with subcontractors, follow-up of realization and validation of mechanical elements and assemblies.
- Participation in AIT campaigns (Assembly / Integration / Tests / Validation) of the various elements and models of the scientific instruments developed.
I- mplementation and monitoring of qualification tests and report writing, in compliance with the quality approach specific to the space sector.
- Monitor and update technical documents, provide expertise and integration solutions.
- Maintenance of test resources in operational conditions (calibration, supply of cleanroom and gas consumables, maintenance of vacuum chambers and thermal chambers).


- Good knowledge of mechanical design rules and skills with Catia V5, Inventor, or other mechanical CAD software
- General knowledge of solid mechanics and commonly used materials
- Knowledge of the requirements related to mechanical design and instrumentation techniques in space
- General knowledge of physics: Dynamics, Vacuum, Thermal
- Ability to work in English appreciated
- Ability to work independently
- Experience in integration / maintenance of test means is a plus.

Work Context

Following INSIGHT's success, NASA's Mars mission operating since November 2018, Planetology and Space Sciences team (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris / Université de Paris / CNRS) is looking for a collaborator. The position will be dedicated to the technical team in charge of the production and qualification of planetary seismometers. Several profiles of lunar missions are being developed currently, whether by accommodating INSIGHT spare models to lunar environment or by developing new instruments, including optical sensors.
The characteristic functions of the position are :
- Mechanical design of assemblies related to space instruments development.
- Tools and instruments prototypes integration.
- Test facilities responsability.
- Integration into international and multidisciplinary project groups.
- Collaborations with French and foreign laboratories and organizations.
- Office : Université de Paris, Lamarck building (Paris 13th) and IPGP Paris (Paris 5th)

Constraints and risks

Work in the context of a space project, ie a framework imposing quality standards and strict PA/QA rules.
Travels to be planned (monitoring of subcontracting, tests and integration missions).
