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.
We are working on Security, a service in charge to ensure the security of any person entering the domains of the organization, their properties and the properties of the Organization.
You will be part of a small and dynamic team working in the CERN Site Management and Building Department. Within the framework of video surveillance, we have more than a thousand cameras, spread over 16 sites, representing an area of more than 200 hectares fenced. For the management of the video system we use a Milestone platform.
With more than a thousand cameras, it is important that we can use some automation of the analyses to optimize the efficiency of the system and facilitate the task of the operators in the control room (relevance of the information/alarms transmitted to the operator). At the same time, we would like to carry out tests on software applications that could help us in our subsequent research (video search efficiency, reduction of search time). Part of the work will also involve thinking about intrusion management through the formalisation of a strategy, standards, and procedures. We also wish to set up a reflection on the life cycle management of technical installations. Finally, we would like someone capable of doing technology watch to identify trends in the sector and products that could bring added value.
In addition, the person will therefore need to have a strong aptitude for video in all its forms (video surveillance, video analytics, thermal video, image analysis...) and a good understanding of security issues.
There are many challenges and opportunities that are bound to match some of your interests and strengths!

At an intergovernmental meeting of UNESCO in Paris in December 1951, the first resolution concerning the establishment of a European Council for Nuclear Research (in French Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire) was adopted.Two months later, an agreement was signed establishing the provisional Council – the acronym CERN was born.Today, our understanding of matter goes much deeper than the nucleus, and CERN's main area of research is particle physics. Because of this, the laboratory operated by CERN is often referred to as the European Laboratory for Particle Physics.
Physicists and engineers at CERN use the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles. Subatomic particles are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives us clues about how the particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. We want to advance the boundaries of human knowledge by delving into the smallest building blocks of our universe.
The instruments used at CERN are purpose-built particle accelerators and detectors. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these collisions.Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits astride the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva. It was one of Europe's first joint ventures and now has 23 member states.
