RFT for a Quaternary Geology Specialist


​A Quaternary geology specialist is required for a 3 year contract for sub-soils mapping in various areas around Ireland. Initially, work will focus on parts of County Kildare and Roscommon. Mapping will use standard GSI field methods and will involve digital data capture, drilling and geophysical surveys. Training in field methods will be provided. Tasks will include logging natural and artificial exposures, mapping geomorphology, supervising borehole drilling, collecting bulk samples from exposures and boreholes. The service provider will be expected to work on their own in the field, sometimes in remote areas, but with supervision by GSI field geologists.

The service provider must be available for fieldwork during early summer 2019. They should be adaptable to changing circumstances during the field campaign, and follow GSI procedures for stakeholder engagement.

Other tasks related to the geological mapping programme may also be assigned, including site visits to geotechnical investigations.
