General information

Reference : UMR9001-LOILAN-003
Workplace : PALAISEAU
Date of publication : Tuesday, September 13, 2022
Type of Contract : FTC Technical / Administrative
Contract Period : 12 months
Expected date of employment : 1 November 2022
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : Gross salary between 2661,06 € and 2851,40€ per month (depending on experience)
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : 1 to 4 years


The selected applicant will be responsible for developing and operating "smart" devices for automated polarization control and measurement. In particular, these devices will:
- Be self-calibrating through machine learning, within an experiment or application
- Adapt to various applications in the fields of optics, materials analysis, and classical or quantum communications
- Be compatible with photon routing and multi-photon state tomography


- Design, build, characterize and improve demonstrators of "smart" instruments for automated polarization control
- Program and optimize software, interfaces, and machine learning strategies, as well as their integration into "plug & play" systems
- Develop first applications in the classical or in the quantum regime
- Communicate and/or protect the results and the developed know-how, participating in the project valorization strategy
- Manage the project: organization and follow-up of the project progress, reporting and presentation of results, animation of meetings and internal collaborations, supervision of trainees, etc.
- Ensure a technological watch (scientific publications and patents)


Core skills:
- Optical characterization & development of optical experiments and devices
- Instrumentation & interface development (software and hardware aspects)
- Programming (especially Python) & automated data processing
- Project management
- English language (European level C1)

Profile :
- PhD or Research & Development Engineer with professional experience
- Dynamic personality with a taste for initiative, autonomy and teamwork, as well as a strong potential to learn new techniques, software & hardware
- Strong interest in innovation and research valorization

Many other experiences and skills can be useful to the project, for example:
- Machine learning and/or optimization algorithms
- Electronics, circuit boards, microprocessors (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ...)
- Ellipsometry, polarimetry, or quantum state tomography
- Valorization: intellectual property, industrial transfer, ...

Work Context

The work will be carried out in the Solid State Quantum Optics Group of the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (C2N). Located at the heart of the Paris Saclay campus, C2N is a joint research unit of CNRS, Université Paris Saclay and Université Paris Cité. The mission is part of the valorization project SALTo (Scalable & Automated Light polarization Tomography), funded by the LabEx PALM and NanoSaclay.

The research engineer will be integrated in an international team, with the most recent know-how on the subject, and developing breakthrough technologies. He/she will be closely supervised by the two project leaders (a post-doctoral researcher and an Associate Professor) who will help him/her to develop skills beyond his/her initial training. He/she will be included in the strategy for the valorization of results.

The selected applicant will also be able to benefit from the CNRS training offers, on scientific and technical aspects as well as on project management and research valorization (intellectual property, innovation ecosystem, entrepreneurship...).

Constraints and risks

In view of the perspectives for valorization and industrial transfer, the work will be subject to a declaration of confidentiality, some of the techniques used requiring intellectual protection prior to their communication.

Occasional use of class 3B to 4 lasers, involving the wearing of protective glasses.
