Description du poste

ESR3: Offshore wind resource at deep sea applying satellite data and numerical modelling
Work-package: 4 – Wind Resource Assessment in Deep Waters

Host: Technical University of Denmark, Wind Energy Department (DTU)
Country: Denmark
Supervisors: Dr. Charlotte Bay Hasager and Dr. Ioanna Karagali
Duration: 36 months

Research programme:
1. Handle floating LiDAR data, and correct for motion including ship-based LiDAR, such that wind climate can be obtained with limited uncertainty.
2. Knowledge on the usability of satellite SAR winds at deep sea sites will be compared to numerical model results during 10 years, to estimate inter-annual variability. This result is important as measurement campaigns typically are much shorter.
3. Evaluation of the advantages and limitations of numerical modelling versus satellite ocean winds and observations from floating buoy/ship-based LiDAR, to assess wind resource statistics, and to provide maps of potential resource at selected deep sea sites for demonstration.

Planned secondments: Fraunhofer IWES (3 months) and VORTEX (3 months)

Important notice: Applicants to ESR3 position offered by DTU must also apply via the DTU website in order for their application to be considered

Modalités de candidature

All applications proceed through the on-line recruitment portal on the FLOAWER website ( Candidates can apply electronically to several PhD positions within a scientific Work Package, indicating their order of preference. Requested application details include a detailed CV, as well as Bachelor and Master degree transcripts. The deadline for the on-line registration is December 31, 2019. The selected candidates are evaluated and interviewed by the Recruitment and Skill Progress Committee. FLOAWER is strongly committed to promoting equal opportunities and gender balance as part of the recruitment strategy.

Eligibility criteria:

Applicants need to fully respect three eligibility criteria (to be demonstrated in the CV):

  • As the core of the MSCA-ITNs is researcher mobility, at the time of commencing their FLOAWER employment, researchers must not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their (recruiting) host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment. Short stays, such as holidays, are not taken into account.
  • Applicants must at the first day of their FLOAWER employment contract, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research career and have not been awarded a doctoral degree. This research experience is measured FROM the date when they obtain the degree which formally entitles them to embark on a doctorate (either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited, even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged). Research Experience is measured TO the first day of the FLOAWER employment contract of the researcher.
  • English language proficiency: ESRs must demonstrate proficiency in both written and spoken English. This is mandatory for the ESRs to take full advantage of the training program.
