Development, implementation and integration of the simulations in the Euclid space mission


The « Centre de Physique des particules de Marseille » (CPPM) is offering a position to work on software development in the Euclid space mission. Euclid is an international European Space Agency (ESA) mission, scheduled to be launched in July 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.
For the needs of data processing in Euclid, dedicated pipelines are developed in a specific computing architecture. The pipeline software is developed and integrated in this computing architecture within the Science Ground Segment (SGS) of Euclid. For the preparation of the pipelines of the different processing levels, Euclid collaboration needs to produce simulated images to be processed in those different levels.
The CPPM team is implied in the software developments of the simulations pipeline, in the organizational unit of the simulations (OU-SIM) in Euclid SGS. More precisely, the team is in charge of the simulations of the NISP spectroscopic images, instrument in which the team has also other technical developments and responsibilities.
The hired person will work within Euclid computing framework, and will be in charge of the developments of the NISP spectroscopic simulations and also on the evolution of the code with the NISP instrument model. The hired person will work on the development and integration of the code in Euclid framework with link with the simulations team of the French Science Data Center, CC-IN2P3.
The position is to be filled as soon as possible, for a 1-year contract, renewable for two years in total.


The candidate must have:
• A degree in Physics, Astrophysics or high school engineer
• A good skill in software engineering
• A good knowledge of programming languages C/C++/Python
• A good skill of Linux/Unix operating system and virtualization methods
• English: Level C2 or C1 (Common European languages referential)
• Writing technical reports in English.
Team Work:
• Ability to work within a team and in an international collaboration.

 An expertise in simulations and/or data reduction in astronomy/cosmology will be considered.
 Recommendation letters are welcome

Contexte de travail

Located in the heart of the Parc National des Calanques, on the Luminy campus, the CPPM is a joint research laboratory of the CNRS and Aix-Marseille University, with about 180 researchers, engineers and PhD students. The laboratory studies topics ranging from particle physics to astroparticle physics and cosmology, with a strong technological background in electronics, mechanics, instrumentation and computer science, allowing the design and construction of state-of-the-art detection systems, often called upon to operate under extreme conditions: in the depths of the sea, in space or underground. Most of our research is conducted in the context of leading international scientific collaborations and our contributions are recognized worldwide. MPCC is committed to conducting ethical research and promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and provides administrative and logistical support to newcomers (more details here: https://www.cppm.in2p3.fr/web/fr/index.html)
