Cambridge - United States

R & D Scientist with Nuclear Physics Modeling Expertise

Qualifications or Experience: PhD or equivalent

Date of Start: Immediate

The Modeling and Interpretation department is seeking applicants for a Research Scientist position in the domain of nuclear physics and computational modeling. Nuclear measurements are among the most important technologies for characterization of the Earth’s subsurface. Building on many decades of expertise, Schlumberger develops the hardware and algorithms that deliver in-situ measurements deep underground and provide answers for the ongoing energy transition.

As a member of our multidisciplinary team, you will have a key role in developing and implementing new models and integrated algorithms that use fundamental science to solve real-world problems. You will provide the physical understanding and computing skills to take advantage of nuclear measurements within datasets that span diverse spatial scales and sensing techniques. Our projects serve the technical challenges and market needs for the emerging sectors of decarbonization and the energy transition, including Carbon Capture and Storage and subsurface characterization for renewables. Scientists are encouraged to publish research results, present work at conferences, and file for patent protection.

Scientists in the M&I department combine expertise in the fields of nuclear, acoustics, EM, and geophysical measurements, along with state-of-the-art computational sciences and deep learning. Extensive datasets and computing infrastructure are available on the premises and in the cloud.
