About you

Experience working in reservoir management labs would be great, but is not required.

The position requires fundamental understanding or training in one of the following: physics, petroleum or chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, or other related engineering disciplines or principles.

If you are excited about your science, and about doing new things, thinking creatively but working safely and following safety protocols then this will suit you perfectly.
Our labs are unique, and every work day will involve a new activity so this is not a job if you are looking for routine steady tasks.
