Job Description


  • Coordinates all the companys geophysical data acquisition and interpretation activities.
  • Reviews and performs QA/QC on all acquired geophysical datasets.
  • Undertakes technical project work including stand-alone seismic interpretation projects using high resolution single and multi-channel seismic data, side scan sonar and bathymetry datasets.
  • Conducts in-house 3D seismic interpretation and attribute analysis by integrating geological, sampling data parameters and geophysical datasets.
  • Utilizes and integrates quantitative interpretation techniques such as seismic inversion and attributes analyses for geological and geotechnical ground characterization.
  • Undertakes and actively supports the companys Research & Development portfolio with a particular emphasis on the testing of new concepts and processes related to marine geophysics and seabed mapping.
  • Works collaboratively with other departments to ensure geophysics discipline input during key projects technical gate reviews.
  • Evaluates current practices and keeps current on new developments in shallow marine geophysics and other related fields to identify improvement opportunities on current practices.
  • Mentors and coaches on geophysics for all in-house geoscientists and provides oversight for all geophysical interpretation outputs while contributing to the development of geophysical skills in-house.
  • Provides geophysical technical support as required across other departments and works collaboratively between teams to ensure that best practices, optimizations, and innovations are consistently and efficiently applied.


  • Good working knowledge of the 3 facets of marine geophysics: acquisition, processing, and interpretation as well as the ways in which they interact and affect each other.
  • Competency and practical experience in seismic data acquisition and processing, both single and multi-channel seismic data.
  • Proficiency and awareness of bathymetry and side scan sonar data processing and interpretation.
  • Working knowledge of specific geophysical data acquisition, processing, and interpretation software (e.g Oasis Montaj/Sequent, Dug Insight, IHS Kingdom, Petrel, ProMax etc) as well as Esri ArcGIS.
  • Experience in seismic attribute analysis and the integration of geological, geophysical, and geotechnical drilling parameters for ground characterization.
  • Practical competencies in integrated, multi-disciplinary teamwork in exploration and resource development.
  • Strong ability to assess complex geological problems and a strong understanding of regional geological processes in the marine and fluvial environment.
  • Demonstrated experience and interest in the development and mentoring of specialist staff.
  • Interest in novel and innovative technology development and implementation.
  • Creative thinker with a desire to challenge the status quo and conventional thinking with the ability to implement new ideas, processes, and technologies.
  • Very strong computer skills and an ability to adapt quickly to new software.
  • Strong data analytics, quantitative analyses, and data integration skills with demonstrable experience.
  • Strong verbal, written, analytical and persuasive skills. Ability to write high quality technical reports.

  • Able to work under pressure, exercise discretion and judgement in job performance while meeting or exceeding expectations set by management.
  • Positive safety-minded contributor to the team with a strong commitment to safety at all times.



  • MSc in Geophysics/Exploration Geophysics (BSc Hons in Geophysics may be considered with specific course work or experience in geophysics, marine geology, and sedimentology).
  • 8 years experience working as a Geophysicist specifically involved with aspects of high-resolution geophysical data acquisition, processing, and interpretation.
  • Experience in the use of software such as OpendTect, DUG Insight and Geosuite or related packages for seismic interpretation and 3D modelling.
  • Experience in marine geophysical data processing software such as QPS Qimera, FMGT or similar.
  • Experience in the use of GIS software (ArcGIS, QGIS or similar).
  • Experience and awareness of marine geophysical methods and techniques.
  • Knowledge of marine geology and sedimentology.
  • Strong Tertiary level Mathematics and Computing Skills
  • Knowledge of programming (e.g python) is desirable.
