Software Programmer Studentship


Applications are invited for a 1-year fully-funded Master of Science by Research available immediately.
The Sensors Group within the Department of Informatics and Systems Engineering is currently involved in the build and supply of a Ground-Based Synthetic Aperture Radar (GB-SAR) to a Chinese customer based at an academic institute. The GB-SAR will be used in remote sensing applications. The portable imaging radar is based on Cranfield’s existing GB-SAR system, which is designed around a towable cherry-picker hoist.
The task involves writing GUI-based software for the new GB-SAR. This breaks down into two primary tasks:
1) Providing control-interface software between the control PC and the various RF and electro-mechanical devices. The RF sub-system is based around a vector network analyser. Precision movement of the system during the imaging process is controlled by electric stepper motors.
2) Writing data analysis and image-reconstruction software.
For both tasks, the student can draw upon the existing software used with the current GB-SAR. The student will work closely with Dr Morrison, and with the University Workshop carrying out the mechanical aspects of the build.
This is the chance to join a unique and interesting international project, with considerable scope for creativity. It is likely the work will involve travel to China at the end of the build for validation trials to the customer.
Entry Requirements
Candidates should hold a degree in a science subject, and be able to demonstrate proficiency in software programming. Knowledge of languages such as MATLAB, C++, Visual Basic, LabVIEW, FORTRAN, MINT, Vee would be useful.
Funding
The bursary is £13,000-£15,000.

The opportunity to see the cutting-edge of global health and US policy reform was one I will never forget, with my lecturers ranging from leading authorities in the World Health Organisation to Obama's senior health policy advisors.

You should be a self starter who is geologically curious and takes considerable pride in the quality and rigour of your technical work. The ability to think innovatively and drive original thinking in your integrated geological interpretation will ensure that you influence peers and the direction of your subsurface projects.
Key Accountabilities
• Build fundamental geological understanding at the mega-scale across the conjugate margin, at the basinal scale and at the block scale. The ability to search out and integrate public domain information and published research and studies will significantly contribute to your regional understanding.
• A robust understanding of petroleum systems modelling to regional/basinal understanding is recommended.
• Perform volumetric analysis at lead, prospect, and play levels and quantity the key subsurface uncertainties to understand and describe exploration risk
• Produce prospect specific maps for quantifying key reservoir parameters based upon robust integrated geological understanding
• Liaise with well engineering (when required) during well planning and execution. You will contribute to all phases of planning, delivery and evaluation of well operations including preparation of geotechnical documents, data gathering, daily reporting and post-well studies and analyses. This will certainly be key in our operated blocks team as we have a seven well commitment.
• Applies geological expertise and professional judgment in leading and delivering assigned projects and presents completed analysis and recommendations at Peer Reviews, Peer Assists and Functional Reviews as part of the BG Group Value Assurance Framework. May act as a peer reviewer for other projects.
• You are comfortable in mentoring less experienced members of the team, and working in a multi-cultural environment
• Adheres to appropriate Subsurface Policies and Standards.
• Ensures all own evaluations are documented and related geological data (both petrotechnical and physical) is handled in accordance with BG’s Data Management Standards.
• Every individual has a duty to both themselves and those around them to ensure that safe practice is adhered to at all times. In addition to any specific accountabilities for HSSE, all employees are accountable for ensuring that they take care of themselves and adopt exemplary safe behaviours.
Unique Knowledge, Skills, Experience and Attribute

Experience needed:
• This will require experience of a variety of geological settings (depositional and structural), plays and basins with exposure to regional and new venture evaluations, prospect generation and evaluation and/or well operations planning and delivery. Our geology covers the spectrum from pre-salt carbonates to clastic stratigraphic traps.
• We are looking for 'geoscientist'-type geologists that are able to integrate both well and seismic data (although you are not expected to be a expert in seismic interpretation).
• Expert user of core geological interpretations software (Geoframe/Petrel/ Genesis /Trinity/GeoX)
• Has awareness of other subsurface disciplines.
• May have experience of building effective networks with contractors and external R&D bodies.
• Operator experience would be an advantage.

Knowledge, Skills and Attributes: 
 
- Excellent presentation skills and convincing report writing ability. The ability to describe complex concepts in a clear logical way will be key to your success in driving your geological influence both within the team and outside.
- Proven skills in time and project management.
- Needs to be self aware, able and willing to grow and extend their influence with appropriate stakeholders.
- Able to proactively manage their own professional development, in consultation with their Line and Parent Manager.
- Able to be a proven self-starter as well as an integrated team player
- Experience of planning and monitoring of exploration drilling activities.
- Experience in carbonates and deep-water clastic systems will be of considerable benefit.
- A thorough working knowledge of geological software – in particular Petrel, Geology Office, Genesis, Trinity and GeoX is required.- Fluency in Portuguese (or the willingness to learn) would an advantage.
