Researcher in geophysics

Company description

GeoLinks is a deep-tech start-up in Geosciences dedicated to deliver innovative and industrial solutions in the field of geophysical monitoring.

GeoLinks was cofounded in 2020 by 3 experienced geophysicists from the industry having one strong conviction: Delivering cost effective underground geophysical monitoring solutions for industrial operators is key for a safe and sustainable use of the underground. GeoLinks solutions will accompany the large-scale deployment of the CO2 geological sequestration technology, thus contributing to lower carbon foot print and sustainable energy transition.

GeoLinks is laureate in 2022 of the highly selective iLab National Deep-tech contest. GeoLinks is supported by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research, by the French sovereign Innovation public fund of Bpi-France, by the Reseau Entreprendre Essonne, by the Ile-de-France Paris region, by the French pole of competitiveness in Geosciences Avenia and by the Open innovation platform from Evolen.

Job description

The job requires both autonomy and appetence for collaboration with other researchers from the GeoLinks R&D team and external partners. The main scientific objectives of the first missions are:

1.      Modelling the effect of seismic attenuation variations induced by subsurface fluid movements using seismic simulation tools coupled with a petrophysical description of the involved phenomena.


2.      Analysing the modelling results hand in hand with the other members of the R&D team to improve the analysis processes, better extract information from seismic interferometric data and produce demonstrative cases in various contexts (CO2 geological storage, Hydrogen storage, water resources).

Desired profile

·        Organized and self-reliant 

·        PhD in a field of geophysics or signal processing or acoustics or applied mathematics.

·        Area of expertise: numerical simulation of seismic wavefield.

·        Experience in petrophysics and/or seismic interferometry are an advantage.

·        Appetence for research applied to industrial issues

·        Autonomous programming, mostly Python, Fortran, Matlab also useful

·        Experience with simulation codes is compulsory

·        Fluent English (read, written, spoken)
