Job title:

Physics Intern - Ultrasonic Phased-Array Development (6 months)



Clamart, France


About Schlumberger:

We are Schlumberger, the leading provider of technology and services to the energy industry. Throughout much of the oil and gas lifecycle in over 120 countries; we design, develop, and deliver technology and services that transforms how work is done.

We define the boundaries of the industry by unleashing our talented people’s energy. We’re looking for innovators to join our diverse community of colleagues and develop new solutions and push the limits of what’s possible. If you share our passion for discovery and want to find out what you could really do, then here is the place to do it.


Job Summary:

The intern will be integrated in a multi-disciplinary team that develops measurement-equipment to detect defects in the barrier between oil-wells and the surrounding rock, preventing potential catastrophic events. SRPC designs and manufactures ultrasonic tool to control the integrity of boreholes and cased wells. In the last years a significant effort has been made to introduce Phased-Array techniques in such controls. This internship will focus on the qualification of the ultrasonic sensors from the user's point of view. Such work will require the design of tests setups using existing prototypes that will undergo high temperature and high-pressure environments. The experiments will be faced to existing models or to new models to be developed by the candidate.


Essential Responsibilities and Duties:

The candidate will work on the following subjects: 

Laboratory experiments: 

  • control test equipment and test setup, 
  • perform data acquisition using MATLAB or/and Python. 

Data analysis and evaluation: 

  • acoustic characterizations of materials, setup and transducers, 
  • investigation of alternative measurements and methods to characterize experimental setup. 



  • Master’s degree – 2nd year or final year of Engineering School



Programming - experience with MATLAB or/and Python Experiments - basic knowledge of laboratory instruments and control.  

Material Science - basic knowledge of elastic properties and damping mechanism. 

Signal Processing - fundamental knowledge of vibration and acoustic data analysis in the time and frequency domain.  

Acoustics/Physics - basic (elastic) wave propagation theory.
