Postdoc Opportunities

NOW RECRUITING

Research Associate in Computational Fluid Dynamics (Job ID 940)

A Research Associate position is available to contribute to the research on morphing blades for tidal turbines within the Vortex Interaction Laboratory (https://voilab.eng.ed.ac.uk) at the University of Edinburgh. The project is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Bath and seven world-leading tidal and wind energy technology companies. This project aims to demonstrate a novel technology to reduce unsteady-loading for tidal turbines, improving resilience and reliability, and decreasing the levelised cost of energy. We aim to develop a technology that cancels the unsteady loading at its source, while adding minimal complexity to the turbine to ensure high resilience and reliability of the overall system. The holder of this post will lead computational fluid dynamics simulations and will closely collaborate with other team members, who will lead the experimental investigation. Simulations will be performed with the in-house code cnavis and with the OpenFOAM toolbox. This role is UE07 (£33,797 - £40,322) and is available on a fixed term basis for up to 2 years. Closing date 13/05/2021, 17:00.
