Research Fellow in Offshore Technology
The University of Stavanger invites applications for a doctorate scholarship in Offshore Technology at Department of Mechanics, Construction and Material Technology, Faculty of Science and Technology.
This is a trainee position that will give promising researchers an opportunity for academic development leading to a doctoral degree.
Appointment is for three years. The position is vacant from November 1, 2017.
Project title: “Impact of refined metocean conditions on the offshore wind turbine loads and wind energy production”. (Description below)
The position is funded by Ministry of Education and Research.
Applicants must have a strong academic background with a five-year master degree within civil engineering, mechanical engineering or marine engineering, preferably recently, or possess corresponding qualifications which could provide a basis for successfully completing a doctorate. Both the grade for the master's thesis and the weighted average grade of the master's degree must individually be equivalent to or better than a B grade.
The candidate is further required to have:
- A solid knowledge within structural dynamics of offshore structures.
- Developed skills in structural modelling.
- A good understanding of environmental loads in the offshore marine environment.
Furthermore it is an advantage:
- To have knowledge and experience of using Matlab.
- Experience using aero-hydro-servo-elastic structural models of wind turbines such HAWC2, SIMA, and FAST.
