Are you an experienced geophysicist looking for a new opportunity? Do you have experience in near-surface geophysical investigations to share with a growing and enthusiastic team of graduate geophysicists?
Then you might be our next Senior Geophysicist!
My client are one of the UK's leading independent geophysical specialist, providing environmental and engineering geophysical solutions to a wide range of construction, infrastructure and engineering clients. Renowned for our innovative solutions, breadth of capability, and going the extra mile, we are the 'go-to' for many of the UK's largest engineering and environmental consultancies and site investigation contractors.
We are looking for highly motivated, inquisitive, and meticulous people to help us provide rigorous and informative site investigations that are critical to the success of our clients' projects. You will have a broad knowledgebase in geophysical surveying and be enthusiastic about sharing this knowledge with our growing team.
We will expect you to have a good technical base, including a post graduate degree in Geophysics, combined with experience in near surface, high resolution geophysical surveys. You will have extensive experience in collecting, processing, interpreting and reporting on geophysical investigations for environmental or engineering applications using most of the following techniques:
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)
Electrical methods (e.g. DC Resistivity, Induced Polarisation)
Seismic methods (e.g. seismic refraction, borehole seismics, surface wave seismics).
You should be proficient in relevant geophysical data processing and interpretation software packages such as Oasis Montaj, ReflexW, SurfSeis or similar. Any experience in mapping or GIS packages (AutoCAD, Microstation, ArcGIS, QGIS or similar) is an advantage as is proficiency in Matlab or Python.
Alongside a scientific and enquiring mind, you will have good commercial awareness and be comfortable talking about technical concepts with customers and consultants. You will also have a friendly and approachable persona
