SLB's Research Center based in Cambridge is part of SLB global network of research and engineering centres. Our research center is a dynamic, multidisciplinary environment with state-of-the-art research and computing facilities. We work on applied research projects in the physical sciences to meet the current and future challenges of the industry.

SLB's Research Center based in Cambridge is a distinctive marquee-like structure dominating the High Cross site on the western outskirts of Cambridge, England. This spectacular building was completed in 1985 and the smaller second phase was opened in 1992. It has recently been classified as a Grade II listed building. Altogether, there are more than 930 m2; of laboratory space and offices for more than 100 scientists, technicians and domain experts.

The role

You will join the Well Construction Sensors & Chemistry programme at Schlumberger Cambridge Research and be involved in projects spanning a range of fields including soft matter, interfacial science, sensors, and polymer materials chemistry.
