Please note the status of each position. We welcome applications from qualified personnel at all times, but may have current openings only in positions labeled immediate.
Proposal Manager job responsibilities will include;
- fielding calls or emails from potential clients and determining (in consultation with Project Managers) which geophysical technique(s) to use to address their project needs (in consultation with field project managers)
- being able to effectively describe the recommended geophysical approach to clients, and writing technical proposals which outline custom project scopes and costsscheduling fieldwork and field equipment
The successful candidate must have an excellent working knowledge of all land, marine, and borehole logging geophysical techniques to be able to effectively recommend the best technique(s) for a given application. In addition, the successful candidate must be very personable and diplomatic (since he/she will often be the face of Enviroscan), have exceptional oral and written communication skills, have excellent attention to detail, and be able to multi-task efficiently. A sense of humor is helpful. A minimum of a BS or BA in Geophysics, Geology or related Engineering field is strictly required. Salary dependent upon training and experience. Other benefits include health/dental insurance, vacation and company retirement plan.
Candidates for a Field Technician position must have a Bachelors degree in a physical science or math, or two years of geophysics, geology, environmental science, or civil/geotechnical engineering fieldwork experience. Field Technicians will participate in land and marine geophysics field surveys (using GPR, EM, magnetics, resistivity, seismic, sonar, and gravity methods), and may assist with data processing.
Candidates for Project Geophysicist must have a minimum 3 years of specific geophysical experience: either on-the-job, or in graduate school. Upon hiring, Project Geophysicists will be expected to immediately participate in land and marine geophysical field surveys (using GPR, EM, magnetics, resistivity, seismic, sonar, and gravity methods). After a short training period (3 to 12 months, depending on prior experience), a Project Geophysicist will be expected to lead field efforts and process data. Within a year, a Project Geophysicist will be expected to interpret results, and write reports. Continued sufficient progress will lead to a Project Manager position.
Candidates for Project Manager must have a minimum of 4 years of specific on-the-job geophysics experience, with a Masters degree or higher in Geology or Geophysics. Project Managers must be able to lead field surveys (using GPR, EM, magnetics, resistivity, seismic, sonar, and gravity methods), supervise multiple concurrent projects, process data, interpret results, write reports, manage project budgets, and supervise and train Project Geophysicists and Field Technicians.
All three field positions above require that the candidate be willing to travel (often on short notice – but rarely for long periods), be able to get along with people, and have excellent oral and written communication skills. A sense of humor is helpful. Prior OSHA 40-hour HAZWOPER training (with annual updates) is a plus. Mechanical or electrical/electronic skills are also a plus. In addition, qualified candidates need to be physically fit since geophysics fieldwork often involves carrying instruments for long distances in a wide variety of conditions and terrains.
Starting salary for all positions is dependent upon previous training and experience. Other benefits will include: health & dental insurance, company retirement plan, generous holiday and vacation time, and either overtime pay or billability-based quarterly bonus (depending on position).
Interested candidates should send a resume and cover letter to Felicia K. Bechtel, President.
