  • assist in developing site-specific 3D-integrated ground models in close collaboration with our geologists and geophysicists 
  • support tool development for handling our large geotechnical databases 
  • derive site-specific engineering soil properties and soil profiles for the design of various offshore structures and facilities. 
Additionally, you'll prepare engineering reports (GIRs) and technical notes, and support research and development initiatives within geotechnical engineering. 

Your competences include that you 
  • have substantial experience within the field of (offshore) geotechnical engineering 
  • have a relevant engineering degree (MSc or MEng) in either civil or geotechnical engineering  
  • have a genuine interest in soil behaviour, in situ testing and laboratory testing  
  • have experience with (offshore) geotechnical site investigation and/or advanced geotechnical laboratory testing
