Graduate Physicist, UK

Job Family: Engineering
Updated At: 2019-04-09

JOB DESCRIPTION

The Graduate Physicist will work in a wide variety of areas relating to the development of scientific geological survey instrumentation and associated methods for application in wireline well-logging.

The primary area of work for the successful candidate will cover:

  • Research and development of novel remote sensing methods and techniques
  • Evolution and optimisation of legacy sensors and processing methods
  • Application of novel signal processing techniques and mathematical inversion methods
  • Provide full-life support for existing systems including but not limited to calibration, systems analysis, documentation, trouble shooting and error management.

The areas of measurement which will be encountered fall broadly into the following categories:

  • Electrical techniques and methods. Sub-surface probes utilizing the propagation of electrical signals into geological formations using both induced and direct injection techniques.
  • Nuclear techniques and methods. Sub-surface probes using both gamma-ray and neutron transport methods are continually under review and development. Monte-Carlo numerical simulation methods are used to aid in the design and characterisation of tools.
  • Acoustic techniques and methods. Sub-surface probes investigating sound propagation utilising all wave propagation processes (p-wave, s-wave, Stoneley etc).
