The Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille (CNRS) is looking for an experienced engineer to lead a team of hardware, firmware and software developers on FPGA-based cards.


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 must be able to carry out management activities in the context of international collaboration such as:
o o Coordinate developments with the teams creating the devices interfacing with the CPPM developments
o o Organize progress meetings with partners
o o Present progress and issues to CERN's governance bodies
o o Periodically update the risk analysis
o o Check that the schedule and allocated budgets are respected
o o Participate in international conferences
As such, a perfect command of English is required.
The candidate must have significant experience in all technical subjects related to the proposed developments:
o CAD tools for fast electronic board design
o FPGA development techniques
o High-speed serial 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)

He will have to contribute strongly to the developments and will therefore have to master the above-mentioned techniques.

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.
