À propos de  L'École polytechnique

École polytechnique (also known as “L’X”) is a world-class higher education and research establishment dedicated to sciences and technology, founded in 1794. The School granted a military status in 1804, and operates under the administrative supervision of the Ministry of Armed Forces. École polytechnique is a founding member of Institut Polytechnique de Paris, alongside four other Grandes Ecoles in engineering: ENSAE Paris, ENSTA Paris, Telecom Paris and Telecom SudParis.

École polytechnique is highly internationalized (40% of students and 40% of faculty members are international) and combines top-level research, academics, and innovation at a global level. Its various undergraduate and graduate-level programs – Bachelor of Science, “Ingénieur Polytechnicien” (Master’s level program), Master’s, and PhD – are highly selective and promote a culture of excellence with a strong emphasis on science, anchored in humanist traditions.

With its 23 laboratories, 22 of which are joint research units the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the École Polytechnique’s research center explores the frontiers of interdisciplinary knowledge to provide significant contributions to science, technology, and society.

Le poste

Presentation of the research laboratory

The centre for applied mathematics “Le Centre de Mathématiques Appliquées (CMAP)”, aims at the development and the exploration of mathematics in relation with their applications. The opening of the CMAP to other disciplines can be seen through the variety and the complexity of the research topics which are addressed. Its organisation allows the different groups to initiate and explore new topics. The research areas of CMAP are in tight relation with some problematics in physics, mechanics, chemistry, biology and health, finance, but also in social sciences, economics and information technologies. The essence of the research led at CMAP follows the cycle: modelling, mathematical analysis, numerical simulations, visualisation and then refinement of the modelling. Each stage of this cycle draws on the skills of the laboratory's members (80 permanent researchers, doctoral students, numerous visitors and guest researchers).

The lab has also tight links with the Département d’Enseignement-Recherche en Mathématiques Appliquées of Ecole Polytechnique (DepMap), notably through the definition of the teaching and research politics, the recruitment and the participation of the CNRS researchers to the teaching in applied mathematics (in the engineer curriculum as well as the Master's degrees). The CMAP has strong interactions with some industrial and financial companies, through multiple research grants and fundings of Ph.D.'s (CIFRE), and through different teaching and research "chaire" programs.

We are looking for: Research engineer position in deep learning for reliability and predictive maintenance (H/F) – Fixed-term contract for 2 years.


This position is open within the framework of the Chair “AI and Predictive Maintenance”(IAMP) supported by Ecole polytechnique and sponsored by Europorte.

Project description:

The nowadays advance in sensing and data acquisition technologies enable the collection of heterogenous and large amounts of monitoring data from the industrial components and systems along their entire life, during different operating regimes, and under varying environmental conditions. The efficient analysis and processing of such data using advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques can provide valuable indicators about the industrial component/system health, safety, and reliability. These indicators, eventually, contribute to the overall availability and profitability of the industrial facility.

In this context, the chair IAMP is offering 2-years contract for a highly skilled and motivated research engineer. The successful candidate will contribute to cutting-edge research projects focused on developing advanced methods and software based on deep and transfer learning algorithms to improve fault detection, diagnosis and prognosis, health management, and predictive maintenance of industrial components and systems.

In this role, you will be responsible for the following main tasks:

• Develop innovative methods and software based on deep and transfer learning techniques, targeting Prognostics and Health management (PHM) and predictive maintenance problems.

• Write scientific articles and publish research findings in top conferences and journals.

• Support master and doctoral researchers.

• Advise interns and trainees, and supervise collective scientific projects.

• Develop innovative pedagogies in statistical learning, artificial intelligence and their applications in industry.

This post is to be filled in Palaiseau (Essonne) by secondment or contract.

We're made for you because :

École Polytechnique’s strategic model is based on three pillars: education, research and innovation.
