Computing Fellowship: Full-Stack Software Engineer
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.
Within the scope of the HI-LUMI project, you will take part in the renovation of vacuum software applications to ensure their operability and maintainability throughout the HI-LUMI era, and in the development of the next generation of data analytics tools for vacuum.
The main tasks will be the following:
- Participate in the consolidation of the vacuum SCADA codebase by contributing to the refurbishment of the vacuum SCADA user interfaces and diagnostic functionalities;
- Work on the consolidation of the vacuum supervision system, by participating in the migrations of the vacuum framework and SCADA applications from their current version to WinCC-OA 3.18;
- Perform upgrades and renovations of vacuum web applications to ensure that their underlying technologies, based on Java Spring and React, will be supported throughout the HI-LUMI era;
- Contribute to the development of the next generation of diagnostic tools for vacuum, based on modern data analytics architectures and paradigms to better support the vacuum operations team;
- In addition to this, you will provide support for running applications, by performing diagnostics and bug fixes.
- You are a national of a CERN Member or Associate Member State;
- You have graduated, or are about to graduate with a university degree (BSc or MSc level in computer science, engineering or another relevant course) and have no more than 4 years’ relevant experience after obtaining your degree;
- Kindly note that experience prior to the latest obtained degree will not be taken into account for the calculation of your overall years of experience.
Essential skills and experience:
- Demonstrated experience in WinCC-OA;
- Proven experience in the design, maintenance and upgrades of web applications based on Spring Boot, React, and ORACLE databases;
- Good working knowledge of English and/or beginner level of French.
Desired technical skills:
- Knowledge of data analytics architectures and ETL pipelines.
Please note that CERN Staff members are not eligible to apply for a Fellowship.
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).
