Description of employer and working environment

Geosciences and astronomy are two fields in which both observational and simulation data are becoming increasingly voluminous, varied and complex, with the consequent need for 1/ services to store and manage them in a distributed way, manipulate them efficiently, visualize and exploit them through cross-referencing with other information, and 2/ interoperable services to make them accessible and to distribute the high value-added products resulting from processing.

The engineer will work at OCA. This institution is made up of three research units (UMR) and a support and research unit (UAR), with a total of almost 450 people on 4 sites. The engineer will be part of the UAR Information Systems team. He/she will be required to work on projects emanating from the various UMRs of OCA and thus interact directly with members of several teams as well as with those of several local, national and international groups working on this theme. He/she will thus help position the OCA as a regional expert in the field.
