Current Roles

Senior Geophysicist (Current)

Are you a highly experienced geophysicist looking for a new opportunity? Do you have lots of experience in near-surface geophysical investigations to share with a talented and enthusiastic team of geophysicists?

Then you might be our next Senior Geophysicist

 

Zetica

We are 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 for going the extra mile, we are the ‘go-to’ geophysical service provider for many of the UK’s largest engineering and environmental consultancies and site investigation contractors.

The company’s success is due in no small part to a strong team ethos combining the resources of our geophysics, systems engineering, RnD and administration teams, with an enviable geophysical survey equipment inventory and a purpose-built office to covet.

You

We are looking for experienced, highly motivated, inquisitive, and meticulous geophysicists  to help us provide the 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 a number of years’ 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)
  • Electromagnetics (EM)
  • Magnetometry
  • Microgravity
  • Electrical methods (e.g. DC Resistivity, Induced Polarisation)
  • Seismic methods (e.g. seismic refraction, borehole seismics, surface wave seismics).

You should be experienced in using relevant geophysical data processing and interpretation software packages such as Oasis Montaj, ReflexW, SurfSeis and Res2DInv. 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.

 

Due to the restrictions imposed by the Covid-19 crisis, these roles are currently only available for applicants who permanently reside in the UK
