Description de l'offre d'emploi


Institut Mines-Télécom is the leading public group of engineering and management Grandes Écoles in France. Consisting of eight public graduate Grandes Écoles and two subsidiary graduate schools, Institut Mines-Télécom leads and develops a rich ecosystem of partner schools, economic, academic and institutional partners, key players in education, research and economic development.

Mines Saint-Étienne, a graduate school of the Institut Mines-Télécom, is responsible for education, research, innovation, industrial transfer and scientific culture dissemination. With 2,500 students, 500 staff and a budget of €50m, it has 3 campuses dedicated to the industry of the future, health and well-being, and digital sovereignty and microelectronics. It is ranked in the top 10 graduate engineering schools in France and the top 500 universities worldwide.

The 2023-2027 strategy of Mines Saint-Etienne is in line with that of Institut Mines Telecom. It aims to:

  • Support the ecological, digital and generational transitions and educate the people involved,
  • Support national and European sovereignty in microelectronics and digital technology.

To support this strategy, it is recruiting a software development engineer.


The position to be filled is that of software development engineer based at Centre Ingénierie Santé (CIS).

The CIS brings together 70 people, including 18 professors in engineering industrial/computing, biomechanics and healthcare engineering. Since its creation in 2004, the CIS has been representative of the ability of Mines Saint-Etienne to acquire leadership on innovative themes such as, for example, soft tissue biomechanics. SAINBIOSE (INSERM UMR 1059) brings together researchers from the CIS (biomechanics, biomaterials and bioengineering), the faculty of Medicine from Jean Monnet University, Saint-Etienne University Hospital, Inserm and the French Blood Establishment. The global scientific objective of SAINBIOSE is a better understanding and of biostress in osteoarticular (LBTO team) and cardiovascular pathologie (DVH team).


Biomechanics, experimental and computational, is a major research topic of SAINBIOSE, which goes from modelling the mechanical behaviour of tissues to clinical and industrial applications, especially with the textile industry.

We are planning to open a non-permanent position of software development engineer to join a team elaborating a digital twin of the venous and lymphatic networks of the lower limb.

Job duties and activities: as a software developer, your job will involve:

  • Collaborate with researchers conducting basic research in biomechanics and biomedical engineering, within the framework of a laboratory environment, and in collaboration with a company leader on the compression stocking market.
  • The work will be carried out at Mines Saint-Etienne, within the SAINBIOSE research unit (Inserm U1059). It is based at the Centre Ingénierie et Santé (Hospital campus at the North of Saint-Etienne). There will be collaboration with and regular visits to the compression stocking manufacturer and to other laboratories in France participating to the project.
  • The objective of the project is to develop a software to assist product design for compression stockings. A team is already at work for developing and combining a digital twin of the lower limb and on models of compression textiles predicting the hyperpressures induced by elastic compression in the deep soft tissues. We are seeking to hire a software developer to complete the team and integrate all the developments in a platform with a graphical user interface developed in Python. Eventually, the software will be tested and validated by engineers of the stocking company. 

The project will take place in a research group having 15 years experience in developing software for biomechanical applications (

The position is based on the Saint-Étienne campus. Participation in activities operated by the Saint-Étienne/Aix-Marseille-Provence/Lyon campuses and international collaborations are encouraged.
