The COAST Engineering Research Group at University of Plymouth are a leading group of Academics, Postdocs and PhD students carrying out exciting work on European and UK projects in coastal engineering and ocean energy, publishing their work in the best journals in the field. The group benefits from access to the GBP 19m COAST Laboratory, equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for marine renewable energy and coastal engineering.
An opportunity has arisen for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Marine Renewable Energy to join the COAST Engineering Research Group here at University of Plymouth. As a Postdoctoral Research Fellow you will be carrying out research work around the assessment of ocean energy resources (including wave, tidal and offshore wind energy) and the technologies for their exploitation. The work will be in the framework of the Intelligent Community Energy (ICE), an EU-funded Research Project dedicated to improving, developing and promoting new smart solutions for energy production, storage and consumption for islands or remote communities.
You will have a good undergraduate degree and PhD in Engineering, ideally related to coastal engineering and/or ocean engineering, and some experience in numerical modelling, ideally applied to wave, hydrodynamics or wind modelling. You should have an interest in marine renewable energy and evidence of effective management of research activity.
