Would you like to take part in developing new offshore wind farm projects by supporting the Geophysical Assessments team?

Join us and become Student Assistant in our Site Investigation Management department where you’ll influence decisions and handle tasks on your own, thereby contributing with your knowledge and expertise. You’ll be part of a large group of committed geophysicists, geologists, hydrographic surveyors, scour engineers and project managers. In the department, we strive for a high degree of professionalism when planning and conducting our surveys, interpretations and engineering work.

You’ll be working in the Geophysics & Seabed Surveys group, where you’ll join the newly established Geophysical Assessments team, initially working closely together with our data engineer and eventually the geophysicists.

Your key tasks will be to

  • commence data mining and populate metadata in the future overview of all relevant geophysical site data
  • support in aligning data standards and clean-up of legacy projects
  • support internal IT, Software & Data Management and data deliveries to internal and external stakeholders
  • assess geophysical data from offshore wind farm sites and export cable routes during project development
  • integrate and prepare different geophysical data sets (e.g. UHRS, SBP, MBES and SSS data) in future global reference projects.

You may also support ongoing geophysical development initiatives related to both maturing internal processes as well as technical development of processing and interpretation work.

Your competences include that you

  • are currently undertaking a relevant degree in earth sciences
  • potentially have some experience with geophysical methods related to site investigation
  • have some interest in solving IT-related challenges
  • have a proactive and systematic approach to your work tasks
  • speak and write English fluently and have excellent communication skills, enabling you to convey your messages to your stakeholders smoothly and efficiently.

Furthermore, you’re motivated by technical challenges and a highly dynamic workplace. Preferably, you enjoy working with database setup and automated coding languages (i.e. Python, Matlab, etc.) or are willing to learn.
