Openings for three post-doctoral research assistants

School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, University of Manchester

Closing date: 8th February 2013

  1. Novel Wave Energy Converters
  2. Modelling Coastal Hydrodynamics and Morphodynamics
  3. Tsunami Overtopping and Loading on Coastal Defences

1. Wave energy is an abundant resource but cost effective conversion into electricity has remained elusive. EPSRC is funding the project ' Step-WEC: STEP change for Wave Energy Conversion through floating multi-body multi-mode systems in swell' as part of the Supergen Marine Challenge 2: Marine Energy Technology for 2050. Applicants are sought with capability in wave and floating body hydrodynamics. The project is theoretical and experimental. Familiarity with WAMIT will be an advantage. Start date 1st April 2013. Duration 1 year in first instance on 3 year project. Ref. EPS-02003

2. This project is part of the NERC consortium iCOASST (integrated coastal sediment systems) and involves large-scale long-term coastal hydrodynamics modelling on the UK continental shelf driving morphodynamic change. The TELEMAC suite will be employed for this purpose. Start date 1st April 2013. Duration 2 years. Ref. EPS-02103

3. This project is part of the NERC consortium grant 'Will climate change in the Arctic increase the landslide-tsunami risk to the UK?'. This work package is concerned with tsunami overtopping, inundation and loading on coastal defences. In-house codes will be used for overtopping and TELEMAC for inundation. Start date 1st October 2013. Duration 18 months. Ref. EPS-02102

Salary in the range: £29541 to £36298
