Project/Senior Geophysicists (two posts) – Environmental and Engineering Geophysics

1(Post References: SG-1-2020 & PG-3-2020)

Do you want to contribute to a carbon-free future by working with one of the UK’s leading geological and geophysical consultants? Our innovative, growing team are now looking for a Senior and a Project Geophysicist to work predominantly in the land-based environmental and engineering sector.

 Are you technically entrepreneurial and commercially aware? Would you like to work in an environment that offers variety, scientific rigour, and innovation? Then Reynolds International could be the perfect fit.  We’re recognised as the UK’s leading independent, near-surface geological and geophysical consultancy. Founded in 2009 by our Managing Director, Professor John M. Reynolds, we specialise in:

  • Near-surface engineering and environmental geophysics
  • Offshore wind farm geophysics
  • Earthquake preparedness
  • Geohazards, especially glacial hazards.

We’ve been involved with designing, managing, and/or interpreting some of the most prestigious engineering and environmental geophysics projects over the last few years. Here are just a few highlights:

  • Investigations for the offshore wind farm and renewable energy developments in the UK and abroad
  • Over-water surveys for Crossrail and Docklands Light Railway, the Thames Tideway Project, and the London Gateway Project
  • Searches for natural and man-made cavities and voids for infrastructure schemes such as the new Mersey Crossing at Halton, Wirral.

And that is far from all; we’ve also carried out site surveys for jack-up rig locations, dredging and marine aggregates, airport expansion projects, mineral exploration geophysics and geophysical investigations for hydropower dams, underground nuclear repositories, and new nuclear stations.

We’re always pushing boundaries when it comes to new methods of data processing and 3D interpretation and presentation of seismic data for over-water engineering projects. We remain a strong influence on how surveys are conducted for offshore structures.

We are the go-to near-surface geological and geophysical consultants in the UK. As such, we are the principal geoscience consultant to North Wales Tidal Energy Ltd’s prospective 2.5 GW tidal range project off the North Wales coast and are playing strategic roles in other major infrastructure projects in the UK,

We are dedicated to helping the UK and indeed nations worldwide achieve a zero-carbon future. This is what drives us to stay at the leading edge of geological and geophysical consultancy in hydropower and renewable energy.
