We have a great opportunity in our UK team for an ambitious Sediment Dynamics Engineer to join our multi-disciplinary Marine Geo-team, with a focus on acting as technical lead for seabed mobility and scour assessment scopes of work.

With more than 300 professionals, AtkinsRéalis’ ground engineering reputation is built on the skills, excellence and commitment of our people in all aspects of ground engineering. We see a bright future as we adapt and strengthen our technical expertise in growth areas, such as offshore renewables and interconnectors.

Within AtkinsRéalis’ Ground Engineering and Tunnelling Practice, you will join a small team of Marine Geophysicists, Engineering Geologists, Geotechnical Engineers and Geomorphologists to provide support to our clients within the offshore renewables and subsea cables sectors.

You will act Technical Lead for sediment dynamics, within our Marine Geoscience service line, leading both seabed mobility and scour assessments scopes of work. You will act as a mentor to junior members of staff in the area of seabed dynamics, and also take the lead in developing AtkinsRéalis’ sediment dynamics capabilities, such as by further developing our in-house scour tools, undertaking business development activities as well as presenting our sediment dynamics capabilities to key clients.

We recognise that seabed mobility and scour assessment is a highly multi-disciplinary activity, and we therefore welcome applicants with a range of industry backgrounds, including but not limited to, fluid dynamics, metocean, geospatial consultancy, GIS, marine geoscience, geotechnical engineering, and coastal and maritime engineering.
