    Jun 16 2013: Shell employs approximately 1,500 geoscientists worldwide. Approximately 300 geoscientists are based in the United States, and over 90% of the geoscientists have a MS or PhD degree.

    As a result of fewer women graduating with Engineering degrees, only 6pc of the engineering workforce is made up by women and only 12pc are working in the wider STEM sector.

    How many jobs are out there. I saw 29 on the BrightRecruits website. Most of them were for Post Doc. Students. 9 were located in the United States.

    There appears to be a lot of competition for Engineering and Physics Students throughout other industries. How far is Shell willing to allow, Geologists and other scientific graduates, the opportunity to do their own, personal based research or research that involves some organization they belong to, on the side? Will shell offer contracts that make everything a Scientist or engineer creates in the privacy of their bathroom the personal property of Shell or will there be some negotiating room?

    With many student clamouring for freedom of information and freedom to patent their own works, how much independence and patent freedom is Shell willing to give their future Scientific and Engineering employees?

    How many Post Doc., Undergraduates, etc. does Shell need at this time?
