Do you want to join the team responsible for pushing the boundaries of geotechnical design for offshore wind turbine foundations?
Join us and become a Senior Geotechnical Engineer in the Geotechnical Engineering department where you'll be responsible for a wide range of geotechnical activities related to the planning, development, design and construction of offshore wind farms. You'll be part of a large and diverse team of 25 Geotechnical Engineers from more than 14 different countries.
Your key tasks will be to:
- perform detailed geotechnical design tasks with the aim of implementing novel foundation designs and mature new design strategies
- develop in-house design tools capable of solving complex geotechnical problems related to detailed foundation design
- use purpose-built or commercially available software for analysis of complex soil-structure interaction problems
- prepare detailed geotechnical reports and memoranda with the aim of having geotechnical parameters and design methods approved by a Certification Body
- closely collaborate with people from different engineering disciplines within the Foundations group, e.g. structural, loads and installation departments, with the goal of executing state of the art foundation design and collaboratively developing new foundation solutions.
As part of the role, you'll be the geotechnical expert on an array of projects related to offshore geotechnical engineering, including large offshore wind farm developments, R&D projects (in collaboration with both internal and external parties) and in-house software development. You'll take ownership of several complex tasks and will be expected to actively engage yourself in technical discussions and challenge the status quo.
Your competences include that you:
- have 5 - 10 years of experience within the field of offshore geotechnical engineering
- hold a MSc or a PhD in civil/geotechnical engineering (or equivalent)
- have a strong understanding of soil-structure interaction
