PhD Opportunity: Development of a Risk Policy for Offshore Wind Energy Applications

REMS (Renewable Energy Marine Structures) is an EPSRC funded centre aiming to train fifty Engineering Doctorate (EngD) and PhD students over an eight-year period commencing in 2014. This is a collaborative partnership between the University of Strathclyde, Cranfield University and the University of Oxford. The REMS CDT will conduct research across the full spectrum of Offshore & Marine Renewable Energy structures integrating deep specialist areas such as geotechnical engineering, the soil-structure interface, whole-system structural design & optimisation, design for manufacture, inspection maintenance & repair and structural integrity including fatigue & fracture mechanics in the marine environment.

This opportunity is for the development of a widely applicable risk policy specific for offshore wind energy applications and with a view to inform design, operation & maintenance and end of life scenarios related decisions. This 3-year PhD project, is supported by the G+, a global leading health and safety organisation for the offshore wind industry who will provide access to an extensive network of stakeholders across the supply chain. The project will look into how different industries (ie maritime, offshore oil&gas) have developed similar policies and apply best practice for offshore wind energy applications, with a particular focus on the element of safety, and apply it on a number of case studies.

The studentship is available to UK and eligible EU citizens with (or about to obtain) a minimum of a 2.1 or a Masters degree in Physical Science/Engineering/Economics/Actuarial Science. This competitive studentship will commence in September 2019 and will cover University fees and a monthly stipend.
