The « Centre de Physique des particules de Marseille » (CPPM) is offering a position to work on the preparation and the verification of the performances of the Euclid NISP instrument, and its follow-up during the in-flight operations. Euclid is an international European Space Agency (ESA) mission, scheduled to be launched in 2023. The scientific goal of the mission is to understand the nature of the dark matter and the dark energy that represent 95% of the content of the Universe. For that, Euclid will measure the shapes and the positions of tens of millions of galaxies thanks to two instruments, an imager in the visible domain, the VIS instrument, and a spectrophotometer observing the sky in the near infra-red domain, the NISP instrument.
The CPPM team is highly implied in the Euclid project, and has in charge the scientific responsibility of the spectroscopic part of the NISP. The team works on the ground and space based NISP data analysis and instrument calibration. The CPPM is also a major actor in the NISP infra-red detectors characterization and a part of the team works on the developments of the pipeline of the NISP spectroscopic simulations.


The hired person will join this team of experts on the NISP instrument. He/She will have the responsibility of the instrument and its performances follow-up, before and after the in-flight commissioning phase, starting just after the satellite launch. He/She will work as a support for the NISP Instrument Scientist, based at CPPM. This activity includes the preparation of the in-flight data analyses software, the validation of the calibration procedures and the performances verification of the instrument.


The candidate must have:
• A degree in Physics, Astrophysics or in instrumentation engineer high school
• A good skill in software engineering
• A good knowledge of signal and images processing and statistical methods
• Scientific data analysis and modelization
