SOLEIL is the French national synchrotron facility, located on the Saclay Plateau near Paris. It is a multi-disciplinary instrument and a research laboratory, whose mission is to run research programs using synchrotron radiation, to develop state-of-the-art instrumentation on the beamlines, and to make those available to the scientific community. SOLEIL, a unique tool for both academic research and industrial applications across a wide range of disciplines including physics, biology, chemistry etc., is used by over 5 000 researchers coming from France and abroad. The facility is a “public” company employing about 500 people, founded by the CNRS and the CEA, and partner of the Paris-Saclay University.
The head of the optical group carries out its activity in the Experiences division under the responsibility of the scientific directors; supervising a team currently composed of 5 engineers and 1 technician.
Manage the optics group, which implements optical systems for beamlines from a functional specification provided by the scientific managers; ensure the maintenance and good performance of these systems throughout their life. Ensure a suitable level of R&D to offer solutions when the need arises. Ensure the existence and reliability of metrology, and the means of qualifying optics and associated opto-mechanical devices, to the best level of precision. Responsible for quality control of the materials deployed.
The optics group leader will:
- Ensure the proper functioning of the team:
- Take charge of the detailed design of beamline optics and associated instruments over a broad spectral range, from IR to hard X-rays:
- Supervise and validate quality control procedures for the various components of optical systems:
- Define the strategy and protocols for mounting and adjusting the above-mentioned assemblies:
- Define an R&D program and submit it for the approval of the managers of the Experimental Division:
This job is for an experienced engineer (with at least 10 year experience in optical design and development, preferably at a synchrotron source) or researcher with an engineering degree or PhD. A solid experience in comparable activities is essential as well as a very deep knowledge on the sources of synchrotron radiation.
