  • Working towards or holding Chartered status.
  • A valid UK driving licence.

The following qualifications are considered desirable:

  • Detailed understanding of advanced constitutive soil models, parameter selection for undertaking non-linear analysis (e.g., dynamic analysis, Soil-Structure interaction, thermo-mechanical calculations including creep calculations).
  • Experience in programming (e.g., Python, C++) with focus in geotechnical applications.
  • Proven geotechnical analysis and design experience in seismic geotechnical analysis and design including seismic design for shallow and deep foundations, soil-structure interaction, seismic deformational analyses, seismic response of dams and embankments, liquefaction assessment and ground improvement.
