My former employer, Fugro Seismic Imaging, is looking for new R&D staff for their office in Perth, Western Australia.
The team there is approximately half a dozen people, generally open-source experienced, who are primarily developing graphical front ends to geophysics applications (there’s also some other stuff, in general it’s pretty cool). You’ll almost certainly have to know C. Knowing any of C++, Python, Perl, GTK+, Qt or Fortran also a benefit. You don’t have to know any geophysics, but knowing a bit of maths and physics helps. You’ll easily pick up what you don’t know as you go along.
Pay and conditions are very good. FSI have previously provided sponsored work visas for skilled applicants looking to work in Australia.
If you’re interested, send your CV to the chief geophysicist, Kelly Beauglehole.
