Geophysics profiles

The BGA seeks to help promote the research and professional profiles of the diverse group of geoscientists who contribute to geophysics in the UK and, in doing so, encourage people to take up geophysics-based careers. We therefore invite you to submit your research/professional profile to be displayed on the BGA website. Example profiles can be found below.

There is no set format for a profile. Typical examples are 200-500 words and cover some of the following topics: scientific interests, activities, and skills; career history and professional development; future career ambitions. We also encourage the use of images to complement the text. These could be anything from fieldwork photos to outputs from computer simulations. To help you begin writing your profile it may help to think about the following questions:

  1. How would you describe your work in ten words?
  2. What does a typical day in your working life look like?
  3. How did you become interested in geophysics?
  4. How did you get to where you are now?
  5. What is your most memorable experience in your career as a geophysicist?
  6. What do you think are the big challenges in geophysics in the next decade?
  7. What are your future plans/aspirations?
  8. What advice would you give to anyone considering geophysics as a career (especially those from currently under-represented groups, e.g. BAME, women or people with disabilities)?

Please send your profiles to Chris Davies. There is no end date for this call and submissions will be accepted all year round.
