The recruited engineer will join the AstroParticle and Cosmology laboratory (UMR 7164), one of the few functional centers of the European consortium for astroparticle physics (APPEC: https://www.appec.org). The consortium gathers some 20 European funding agencies and national government institutions responsible for coordinating and funding research efforts in astroparticle physics. The APPEC General Assembly brings together leaders of European institutions and observers from international organizations such as CERN, the European Southern Observatory (ESO), Astronet and the European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA).
The APPEC consortium is responsible for coordinating a collective European strategy, implementing the recommendations of the roadmap and creating a forum where future actions are discussed and where common efforts emerge.
The APC laboratory, due to its scientific priorities, was one of the key players in the creation of APPEC and naturally hosts one of its functional centers.
Each functional center has its own manager (here the director of the APC laboratory) and its dedicated staff, including a project manager (who is the subject of this recruitment offer), responsible for fostering international contacts and relationships with partners in academy and industry, to federate the community through networking and educational actions, to promote interdisciplinarity, while ensuring the impact of the physics of astroparticles.
The APC Laboratory, with the support of IN2P3, aims to strengthen its role as a functional center, hence recruiting a project manager. The recruited person will provide support to the director of the laboratory, in his role as a member of the Joint Secretariat of APPEC (executive body which assists the Chair (president) of the General Assembly and its General Secretary), and two scientific advisers of APPEC from the Laboratory.
More specifically, the project manager will play the role of contact person for the national astroparticle physics committees, help organize major strategic meetings and support the Joint Secretariat in implementing the European roadmap . He / she can help organize APPEC Scientific Council meetings, write and distribute its minutes.
The recruited project manager will be responsible at European level for international contacts with representatives of funding agencies, among which is the European Union. He will also be required to monitor calls for projects and advise members of the community on their various submissions to international calls.
Finally, the recruited project manager will have a key role in maintaining and developing links with other consortia such as ECFA (physics with accelerators) and NuPECC (nuclear physics).
In summary, in a demanding scientific environment, your mission will therefore imply:
- Coordinate and lead the network of scientific partners
- Contribute to the visibility of the Parisian functional center and the APPEC consortium
- Assist in the implementation of a transfer strategy to economic players
- Advise and assist the director of the Parisian APPEC functional center in his scientific and administrative responsibility by liaising between him and the various parties involved: other APPEC functional centers, French and European institutional partners, etc.
- Organize and animate the communication of the Parisian functional center APPEC internally and externally (website, newsletters, working groups ...)
- Organize events and conferences within the framework of the APPEC consortium
- A PhD diploma is a scientific field is welcome
- Knowledge of scientific communication
- Ability to work in a team and remotely
- Organizational and editorial capacity
- Initiative and reporting
- English: at least C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
- Autonomy, rigor and responsiveness
- Excellent interpersonal skills, diplomacy, negotiation skills
- Strong motivation and personal interest in research in the field of physics
The AstroParticle and Cosmology (APC) laboratory is a Joint Research Unit (UMR) created in 2005. The APC brings together around 75 permanent researchers, and around fifty engineers, technicians and administrative staff. Including non-permanent staff (doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows, foreign visitors), some 200 people form this structure, managed in addition to the Uniersité de Paris (UP), by the CNRS (represented by three of its Institutes: mainly the (IN2P3, but also INSU and INP), CEA (DSM / IRFU), the Paris Observatory, and CNES.
Constraints and risks
- Regular trips abroad to be expected, especially in Germany (Berlin).
