Deadline: 07 June 2019
Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste is an international multidisciplinary research center operated as a user facility, featuring a 2.0/2.4 GeV, third-generation synchrotron light source (Elettra), a new free-electron laser light source (FERMI) and a variety of support laboratories. The extremely high quality of the machines and beamlines has set new performance records and has been producing results of great scientific and technologic interest. See http://www.elettra.eu for more information.
The control system of Elettra and FERMI consists of several computers distributed along the facilities that interface with the different equipment to be controlled. State-of-the-art hardware and software technologies are adopted; the TANGO control system software (http://www.tango-controls.org) is used to develop distributed control applications.
The successful candidate will work in the development of control and data acquisition systems for the Elettra and FERMI beamlines. In particular, he/she will work in collaboration with Beamline Scientists and external users in order to understand their needs and to establish Data Acquisition processes and software requirements, to integrate scientific instrumentation in the existing control system and to manage the data reduction/analysis.
Experience in scientific data analysis and international collaborations will be considered a plus.
Good time management skills and ability to prioritize are expected, together with the ability to interact with staff and facility users at all levels and to work productively as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Good oral and written communication skills in English are essential.
