As our Geoscience Specialist, you will report to the CTO and collaborate closely with our technical team and project managers.
We are in search of a multifaceted geoscience professional with a solid grounding in geotechnical engineering and extensive experience in offshore surveying. The role is crucial for early-stage project development, requiring the ability to derive strategic insights from limited geodata for site selection and development activities. Your core responsibilities include overseeing geoscience-related aspects during the development phase of offshore wind projects. This encompasses utilizing diverse geoscience data sources for preliminary assessments, assisting in initial design decisions, site selection, anchor technology, and planning offshore survey operations. The role demands a candidate who is adept in a dynamic, small team environment.
- Lead and manage offshore geoscience investigations (e.g., bathymetric, seabed, and geological surveys).
- Analyze and integrate subsoil, geological, and geophysical survey data for site assessment and design.
- Handle technical and contractual aspects of explosive ordnance disposal in offshore settings.
- Compile and interpret soil and rock condition parameters, including geological stratigraphy.
- Generate detailed site assessment reports encompassing soil and geological conditions for design purposes.
- Participate in design and cost estimation for both floating and fixed support structures, focusing on soil-structure and rock-structure interactions.
- Advise on anchor technology selection and evaluate anchor capacity based on geoscience data.
- A Master's degree in Civil Engineering, Geotechnics, Geology, or a related geoscience field.
- Extensive professional experience in offshore surveying, site investigation, and soil-structure interaction.
- Proven track record in managing and interpreting offshore geoscience surveys.
- Adaptability to rapidly engage with new tasks and challenges.
- Fluency in English with strong teamwork and communication skills.
- Experience with moored and anchored structures in marine environments.
- Knowledge of advanced geophysical survey techniques and data analysis in offshore settings.
Type of employment: Full-time employment with 6 months probationary period
