Description of the thesis topic
IN2P3 is the institutional framework for French research in nuclear and particle physics. Created in 1971, he is in charge of the planning and the management of the major instruments in these fields. Research in particle and astroparticle physics, accelerator-type instrumentation, nuclear physics and computation and data management is supported today by 25 laboratories and research platforms, including more than 3,000 researchers, engineers and technicians.
The IN2P3 will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2021, and wishes to finance a doctoral contract in order to retrace its history, which, despite the influence of the Institute, has not yet been studied from an socio-historical perspective - with the methods, the advances but also the uncertainties of the structuring of a scientific community, from an interdisciplinary perspective and halfway between knowledge and science politics, in a national context closely included in an environment of international cooperation.
We expect the student to study the archives and collect the testimonies of the historical actors of the IN2P3, according to a problematic wich will be defined jointly with the thesis director who will follow his / her work, the governance of the Institute and the CNRS historical committee to which the student will be attached.
The candidate will have to demonstrate autonomy, rigor and synthesis skills. Good communication skills are desirable in order to facilitate exchanges with the various interlocutors (numerous interviews will be required, as well as participation in events organized for the 50th anniversary of the Institute). Particular attention will be paid to transdisciplinary profiles articulating knowledge in fundamental physics and history.
This proposal is jointly supported by the IN2P3, which will facilitate all the procedures, contacts and travel for the doctoral student, and the CNRS Historical Committee, which will provide scientific and methodological support and logistics.
