The European Synchrotron, the ESRF, is an international research centre based in Grenoble, France.
Through its innovative engineering, pioneering scientific vision and a strong commitment from its 700 staff members, the ESRF is recognised as one of the top research facilities worldwide. Its particle accelerator produces intense X-ray beams that are used by thousands of scientists each year for experiments in diverse fields such as biology, medicine, environmental sciences, cultural heritage, materials science, and physics.
Supported by 22 countries, the ESRF is an equal opportunity employer and encourages diversity.
Within the ESRF Instrumentation Services and Development Division (ISDD), you will join the Mechanical engineering group, comprising 50 engineers and technicians in charge of the development, design, construction and testing of new scientific instruments for the ESRF particle accelerator complex and experimental stations (beamlines).
You will contribute to the modelling, design and tests of advanced high precision positioning devices integrating actuators, ultra-high precision displacement sensors and real time active feedback control systems. You will work in close relation with electronics and software engineers, within a mechatronics unit.
You are expected to become the expert engineer for high precision motion systems integrating mechatronics solutions and be in charge of promoting these techniques within the ESRF.
We offer a comprehensive benefits package designed to support your quality of life and your installation in the Grenoble area when relocation is needed.
The monthly salary may be complemented by additional allowances upon eligibility (expatriation allowance, etc.).
