The Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille (CNRS) is looking for a junior engineer or with a few years of experience to participate in hardware, firmware and software developments on FPGA-based boards.


The objective is to develop very high bandwidth acquisition systems for particle physics experiments
Such as Belle2 located in Japan at the laboratory KEK or such as the LHCb experiment (http:/ installed at CERN's Large Hadron Collider, the most powerful particle accelerator in the world located on the French-Swiss border (


The candidate should have, if possible, notions or experience on most technical subjects related to the proposed developments:

o CAD tools for fast electronic board design
o FPGA development techniques
o Transmission techniques.
o Signal integrity issues for fast transmissions.
o Commercial communication protocols (PCIe, Ethernet)
o Hardware description languages (VHDL, Verilog, HLS,...)
o Simulation techniques (RTL, signal integrity, power integrity,...)
o Computer languages (C, C+++, Python, ...)
o Software engineering tools (git, rpm creation, continuous integration systems,...)
o Operating systems (mainly Linux)
If necessary, the candidate will receive refresher training in the above-mentioned areas.

Work Context

The Marseille Centre for Particle Physics is a Joint Research Unit (UMR 7346). The laboratory is part of the Institut national de physique nucléaire et de physique des particules (IN2P3), under the dual supervision of the CNRS and Aix-Marseille Université. The research conducted at CPPM is at the crossroads of two infinites - the infinitely small and the infinitely large - from the study of the elementary components of matter to the exploration of the cosmos. To achieve this, we design and manufacture state-of-the-art detection systems, often operating in extreme conditions: under the sea, in space or underground. Most of our research continues in leading international collaborations and our contributions are recognized worldwide.

The position is to be filled in Marseille on a fixed-term contract for a period of two years, which may be consolidated as a permanent contract at the end of the period.
