Postdoctoral Fellow in marine geology/micropaleontology
Arctic marine sediments contain the most direct and continuous archives of sea ice variability across Quaternary glacial cycles. These records are important for deciphering the dynamics of the Arctic cryosphere and establishing tele-connections with the global climate system. However, we struggle to accurately date Quaternary Arctic marine sediments. This is due to the sporadic occurrence and limited diversity of biostratigraphically-useful microfossils needed for globally calibrated biostratigraphic age control. Encouragingly, recent research has identified regions in the Arctic where calcareous micro- and nannofossils are more abundant and can provide critical biostratigraphic age control to anchor Quaternary age models – the key to the understanding of Arctic’s climate history.

We have exciting opportunities to further expand our skilled and experienced team of 35 biostratigraphers. To complement our current
skill base we are looking for candidates ideally experienced in wellsite and routine micropalaeontology and nannopalaeontology.
The roles will require working within a team on a wide variety of analytical studies, including single or multi-well and reservoir to regional
scale projects, to be undertaken either in our UK offices, overseas and at wellsite. We offer varied and interesting career opportunities
and are currently active in many areas including North, West & South Africa, the Middle East, North & South America, the North Sea,
Norwegian Sea, Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, SE Asia and Australasia. Applicants should ideally be qualified and willing to conduct
wellsite work, both onshore and offshore. This post will involve a balanced mix of office-based analytical work and wellsite work, with
excellent opportunities for career progression within an expanding and dynamic organisation which has exciting plans for further
The successful candidates will have a minimum of an MSc in an appropriate biostratigraphic discipline. Previous industrial experience,
including wellsite work is preferred, but not essential as appropriate training will be given.
We offer a highly competitive benefits package, including pension and bonuses for wellsite work. Salary will be commensurate with
qualifications and experience
