A Post-Doc or researcher Position in Modelling and Experimental Analysis of Floating Offshore Wind Turbines is available at the State Key Laboratory of Coastal and Offshore Engineering, Dalian University of Technology (DUT).
The post is funded for 24 months with the possibility of extension to 48 months. The annual salary starts from ¥200,000 (roughly equivalent to £22,000) to ¥400,000 based on the candidate’s academic background and achievements. The projects offer attractive discounted housing and working condition. The project will also cover the full cost of attending conferences and professional meetings.
Description du poste
This is part of a comprehensive project on design and analysis of novel floating offshore wind turbines. In this post, you will lead laboratory experiments on wind, wave and current loads on novel floating offshore wind turbines. The experiments will be conducted at DUT. The focus of this part of the project is on the load measurements and motion analysis of the novel platform to various combinations of the environmental loads and mooring configurations. Loads and load effects on a floating wind turbine will be assessed from a life-time perspective with due consideration of various phases (operational, parked and fault conditions) that it would experience. The goal is to develop design methods for floating wind turbine structures.
Modalités de candidature
You should submit all application material as a SINGLE PDF FILE to Prof. Wei Shi (firstname.lastname@example.org ).
- One-page cover letter, sketching how he or she would like to address the current research task
- CV, including educational background, work experience and a list of publications
- Graduate transcripts (unofficial transcripts are acceptable at this stage)
- Names and contact information of three references, one of which must be the PhD supervisor.
