The ANR/Digiteo MaGiX project aims the development of a free software for “computer analysis” called Mathemagix (http://www.mathemagix.org). The idea is to generalize the exact and certified spirit of symbolic computation to areas closer to mathematical analysis, and simultaneously ensure high performance. We also pay special care to the development of a high quality user interface, based on GNU TeXmacs (http://www.texmacs.org). The applicant will be integrated in a small team lead by Joris van der Hoeven and Grégoire Lecerf, who both have a strong background in the area of symbolic computation and software development.

Job description

The main goal of the job is to ensure a better compatability between TeXmacs and other scientific text publication software, such as TeX/LaTeX, Open Office and Word. Depending on his profile, the applicant will further improve the existing TeX/LaTeX converters and/or develop high quality converters for Open Office, Word, or other data formats used by scientific publishers. Other possible related tasks are the development of a better editing mode for bibliographic data files and better integration of versioning tools such as Svn or Git.


Application and appointment

In order to apply for the job, please send a detailed CV to Joris van der Hoeven by email (see below). The job will be at the École polytechnique (Palaiseau, France). The duration can be negotiated, but will not exceed one year. The salary will be established by the CNRS according to the rules described at www.sg.cnrs.fr. The application process has started since september 1, 2011.
