Perform geotechnical engineering to monitor GeoEngineers’ subsurface exploration programs for projects with soft, fine-grained soils. Document field conditions, monitor earthwork construction, write field reports on soil condition and construction related projects as they relate to geotechnical engineering. Research technical geological literature and historical information. Interpret subsurface data and perform technical analysis of results on geotechnical engineering issues such as seismic issues and slope stability. May participate in project management activities such as project budgeting, proposal writing and client liaison or be assigned small projects to manage. Domestic travel may be required up to 25% of time
Applicants have a Bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering or a closely related engineering field and 1 year of experience as a Geotechnical Engineer, Research Assistant, Teaching Assistant or another geotechnical engineering occupation. Experience must include:
1 year performing engineering or conducting research into one of the following specific areas of geotechnical engineering: geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering properties of fine-grained soils, or performance-based analysis of foundations or earth retention systems.
1 year performing coding, numerical modeling, or geotechnical software development in FLAC, Matlab, or Abaqus.
Additional requirements include:
Valid U.S. driver’s license.
Completion of at least 3 academic years of graduate-level (Masters or Doctorate) coursework in Civil Engineering, including classes in foundation design, slope stability, lateral earth pressures, and geotechnical earthquake engineering.
All education, training and experience may be gained concurrently. Applicants must be U.S. workers (includes U.S. citizens, permanent residents, foreign nationals granted temporary residence under one of the 1986 legalization programs, refugees, and asylees.
