Text: Company Description At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on http://home.cern. Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. Job Description Join us in building open and reproducible research tools for scientists! We are developing a reproducible research data analysis platform called REANA that allows researchers to run scientific workflows on containerised clouds (Kubernetes) and high-throughput and high-performance compute platforms (HTCondor, Slurm). You will be part of a small and dynamic team working in the CERN Information Technology department. We are using mostly the Python programming language with Docker, Kubernetes, RabbitMQ, PostgreSQL, Singularity technologies on the back-end and React framework on the front-end. You will contribute to the development and operation of the REANA platform supporting the growing use from LHC experiments. This will consist of working closely with particle physicists on improving the individual analysis workflow experience, facilitating analysis sharing among groups through web interfaces, improving platform monitoring and accounting capabilities, allowing ad-hoc use of external cloud resources, and more. There are many challenges and opportunities that are bound to match some of your scientific computing interests and strengths! Take part in the global Research Software Engineering efforts to advance robust, reproducible science through leveraging latest container technologies! Qualifications Eligibility criteria: You are a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State ; You have a Bachelor or Master’s degree in Computer Science, Computational Physics, Computational Biology or other related field; You have no more than 4 years’ experience after completing your highest diploma. Essential skills and experience: You have demonstrated experience developing software using the Python programming language; You are passionate about research software development and advancing science through building robust, secure, well-tested software components and tools; You enjoy working in a small agile software development team building practical solutions in close collaboration with scientific user community; You value learning and sharing knowledge with colleagues, following best open-source collaborative practices and egoless programming. Desired technical skills: Professional experience in one or more of the following would be an asset: container technologies (Docker, Singularity), container orchestration solutions (Kubernetes), front-end development (React). Please note that CERN Staff members are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship. Additional Information CERN would very much like to benefit from your expertise, commitment and passion. In return, CERN will provide you with: An employment contract for between six months (minimum) up to a maximum of 36 months. A stipend ranging from 5,281 to 6,558 Swiss Francs per month (net of tax). Coverage by CERN’s comprehensive health scheme (for yourself, your spouse and children), and membership of the CERN Pension Fund. Depending on your individual circumstances: an installation grant, family, child and infant allowances as well as travel expenses to and from Geneva. 2.5 days of paid leave per month.
