Titulaire d’un doctorat ou diplôme équivalent ou justifiant de titres et travaux scientifiques jugés équivalents par l’instance compétente de l’établissement. Il n’y a aucune condition d’âge ou de nationalité pour candidater. Tous les emplois CNRS sont accessibles aux personnes en situation de handicap en bénéficiant d’aménagement d’épreuves rendus nécessaires par la nature du handicap
This interdisciplinary CNRS chair is built at the interface of the CNRS institutes of engineering and systems sciences (INSIS), the national institute of science for the universe (INSU) and the institute of ecology and environment (INEE), also in connection with its Mission for Transversal and Interdisciplinary Initiatives (MITI). The targeted laboratories to host this CPJ are already involved in this issue within the framework of EquipEx+ Terra Forma, a research topic that benefits from national actions around in particular the national workshops "instrumentation for environmental monitoring" and the business network "Sensors in environment ".
Stratégie du laboratoire d'accueil
The successful candidate will conduct research based on the development of embedded or in situ sensors for understanding the environment, biodiversity and ecosystem health within the framework of EquipEx+ Terra Forma, and in conjunction with the ICOS, OZCAR and RZA IRs for the exploitation of socioecological and Critical Zone data, but also in conjunction with the Data Terra data IR (and the EquipEx+ Data Gaia). He/she will be able to rely on existing systems, such as the network of Observatories of the Sciences of the Universe (OSU), and the partnership systems in ecology and environment (DIPEE) distributed throughout the territory. The components, subsystems and systems developed for field deployment purposes will be based on the platforms of the RENATECH network for micro- and nanotechnology. The main USOs potentially concerned are: OMP and OSUR, and the concerned universities are Toulouse University and Rennes University. The INSU, INSIS and INEE laboratories concerned are: GET, LAAS, and SETE for the Toulouse site and Geosciences Rennes, LETG et IETR for the Rennes site.
This chair is directly linked to the involvement of INSIS, INSU and INEE CNRS instituts in European research infrastructures, in particular eLTER (European Long Term Ecological Research) and its national mirrors OZCAR and RZA. Thus, the recruited candidate will be required to lead international partnerships within the framework of eLTER and more generally around the design of innovative, intelligent and connected sensors and the exploitation of data, as well as the implementation of observation campaigns involving these developments. Recurring observations and measurement campaigns will be conducted on the workshop sites and existing systems. They have already demonstrated their ability, over the past 10 years, to train a pool of excellent young researchers on the development of new instruments, new methods of analysis and modeling, likely to apply for this position.

Résumé du projet scientifique
This chair aims to develop embedded or in situ sensors for understanding the environment, biodiversity and the health of ecosystems at different spatial and temporal scales, as well as the multiple compartments of the Earth system envelopes. This auscultation with the necessary precision, both spatial and temporal, requires breakthrough instruments and tools, meeting strict criteria of miniaturization, intelligence, connectivity, energy sobriety, sustainability, environmental responsibility and appropriation. by humans.
The main environmental issues particularly targeted are:
• The quality of water, its physico-chemical properties, its availability as a resource, and the way life develops in it, whatever its nature, environment or infrastructure.
• The state of the living, microbial, animal or plant, vector of observation allowing access to sensitive or inaccessible areas, or observable in its own right.
For example, within the framework of EquipEx+ Terra Forma, there are particularly important issues around the development (1) of low-cost operational prototypes of multi-parameter probes (including optical systems) that can better characterize the flow of matter (soil water content, suspended matter, dissolved organic matter, Chl-a, turbidity, nitrates, CO2, etc.), (2) new methods and instrumentation to measure and qualify the diversity of living organisms and their responses to local and global environmental changes.
Thus, the candidate must have demonstrated their ability to develop innovative instrumental concepts and acquisition methods, to analyze large volumes of multi-scale data to answer major questions of the environment, biodiversity and ecosystem health. The ability to build and set up instrumental projects involving several partners at national and European level will also be valued, as well as the ability to bring together specialists from various environmental disciplines and new methods in data sciences, like artificial intelligence.
Résumé du projet d'enseignement
The teaching service will be carried out in the form of an "observation support mission" at the interface between the OSU, the IR ICOS, RZA and OZCAR. This mission will aim to establish a policy in order to solve the challenges of integration, archiving and distribution of very large volumes of data resulting from the new acquisition technologies developed in the project. A major challenge is the systematic FAIRization of observation data, which is associated with a high level of demand for the quality of data and services in close interaction with the infrastructures and USOs that acquire this data. In particular, this will involve adapting the procedures in order to archive and make available to the scientific community large volumes of data in an efficient and interoperable manner according to the current international standards, while improving the quality control of these data.

The dissemination of the results will be done through world-class scientific productions: publications, patents, software... In addition, the results will be communicated to various targets such as scientific communities, media, decision makers, general public, schools, etc., with an adapted calendar. Specific tools may be developed such as websites, newsletters, meetings, international symposia, summer schools and conferences.
The CNRS is developing a strong policy in favor of open science. Open science consists of making research results "as accessible as possible and closed as necessary". As such, the CNRS aims to make 100% of the texts of publications resulting from the work of its laboratories accessible , in particular through deposit in HAL. The data produced must also be made available and reusable, except for specific restrictions. In addition, the guiding principles of individual evaluation have been revised in accordance with the DORA declaration, to be more qualitative and to take into account all facets of the researcher's profession.
Science et société
The relationship between science and society is now recognized as a full dimension of scientific activity. The project will develop this dimension in synergy with all the partners. The resulting research work will contribute to informing public decision-making. Participatory science initiatives may be initiated with actors from the project’s socio-economic and cultural eco-system .
The activity will be evaluated in particular on the basis of scientific production (publications, software, patents, etc.), on institutional and private partnerships formalized by contracts, on international presence, on the promotion of work to multidisciplinary scientific communities, on innovation and its transfer to society and on scientific dissemination to non-specialist audiences.
