The Post
The College wishes to recruit a Postdoctoral Research Associate / Postdoctoral Research Fellow to support the work of Prof Lars Johanning and Dr Philipp Thies on a research project funded by Innovate UK. The project aims to optimise a modular tidal stream energy device and demonstrate the system during field demonstration. The industry led project has a strong commercial ambition and focuses on the validation of the technology and its economic viability.

The project has a strong industry focus with multiple members from industry and academia. The task for the advertised post will support the preparation of field demonstration for a multiple modular barge configuration in an array configuration. The tasks will include permit preparation, support in the implementation of met ocean monitoring and environmental data, preparation of a monitoring system that will allow to generate device data from field demonstration to enable a systematic assessment towards required technology risk ranking and certification process.
