Research Software Developer

University of Hull - Medical Engineering - School of Engineering and Computer Science

Fixed-term: 3 years.

The University of Hull is part of a £7.6M EPSRC Prosperity Partnership: A New Partnership in Offshore Wind. This is an exciting new collaboration between the Universities of Hull, Sheffield, and Durham with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (the world’s largest offshore wind turbine manufacturer) and Ørsted (the world’s largest offshore wind farm developer). The aim of this 5-year programme is to address fundamental research to reduce the levelised cost of electricity from offshore wind, and lay the foundation for the next generation of wind turbines and farms at a significantly higher level of power generation.

As part of this programme, the School of Engineering and Computer Science wishes to appoint a software developer to work as part of the structures team to further develop and apply our specialist finite element code to the analysis of novel blade designs. This will include the introduction of new capabilities and optimization routines, together with validation and testing of the software.

The successful applicant will have a good honours degree and/or master's degree in Computer Science or related discipline, or equivalent practical experience in relevant code development, and significant experience in software development, especially using C++.
