The European Synchrotron, the ESRF, is an international research centre based in Grenoble, France.
Through its innovative engineering, pioneering scientific vision and a strong commitment from its 700 staff members, the ESRF is recognised as one of the top research facilities worldwide. Its particle accelerator produces intense X-ray beams that are used by thousands of scientists each year for experiments in diverse fields such as biology, medicine, environmental sciences, cultural heritage, materials science, and physics.
Supported by 22 countries, the ESRF is an equal opportunity employer and encourages diversity.
The ESRF is a user-based research infrastructure, serving 7,000 researchers annually. In 2020, a revolutionary new fourth-generation synchrotron was delivered and implemented.
In this context of deep evolution, the STREAMLINE project has been funded by the EU Commission to help ensure the long-term sustainability of the ESRF. This project will contribute to key updates to the facility’s scientific strategy, renew its business plan and revisit access modes, with a new access service package, and capitalise rapidly on the new scientific opportunities and increased experimental capacities at the beamlines. In particular, one of the activities carried out in STREAMLINE will be dedicated to the assessment of the socio-economic impact of the ESRF.
In this respect, the ESRF is recruiting an impact analyst to carry out a deep study focused on the elaboration of a set of KPIs to allow a continuous assessment to support the strategic management by the directorate team.
As the driving force in this study, the analyst will be in charge of the following tasks:
- Conduct and write a literature review in English on the topic.
- Conduct and carry out a socio-economic impact study.
- Ensure interactions and links with project partners and external stakeholder.
- Participate in project meetings and present the project at conferences or workshops when necessary.
The candidate will be recruited in the Business Development Office (BDO) of the ESRF and work in close collaboration with the Grenoble School of Management (GEM).
