Participants will gain practical experience of geophysical data collection, processing and interpretation under commercial conditions - a key skill for future research and/or commercial sector employment. There are two inter-linked, components;

  • a 5-day skills theory & practice workshop at Keele University

Who should attend

Environmental and natural scientists that have limited theoretical/practical experience of near-surface geophysics but wish (or intend) to use these techniques in their research or future career. Places will be allocated preferentially to NERC-funded PhD students (at all stages), Early Career Researchers and Fellowship holders (i.e., 50% or more funded by NERC). However, a number of funded places may be available to applicants who do not meet these criteria.

This year we are also opening up the course to a limited number of graduate-entry commercial employees, keeping in mind that they are not the focus of the course. As the course is accredited by the Geological Society, Fellows will have a course fee discount.
