Postdoc Opportunities

RECRUITING SOON

Research Associate in Bio-Inspired Morphing Blades

A Research Associate position will be advertised in the fall 2021 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. This role is UE07 (£33,797 - £40,322) and will be available on a fixed term basis for up to 2 years. More information will be posted here when available.
