The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Strathclyde is one of the largest and most successful engineering faculties in the UK, and the largest in Scotland. As a leading international technological university, Strathclyde University is recognised for its world-class research, knowledge exchange and educational programmes. At the heart of this is the Faculty of Engineering, which boasts a growing research portfolio of nearly £100 million.

The Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering is a world-leader in research related to all aspects of ocean energy and maritime transport. The Department makes a significant contribution to National, European and International policymaking in Marine Technology research and its application and was recently ranked Number 1 in Europe and Number 3 in the world for Marine/Ocean Engineering in the global Shanghai Rankings 2022.

We seek to employ a Research Associate to work on the UKRI/EPSRC-funded research “Co-design to deliver Scalable Tidal Stream Energy (CoTide)”. The ambitious target of net-zero by 2050 requires a significant expansion of renewable energy supply. Whilst the backbone of this supply will be the offshore wind, tidal Stream Energy also has significant potential for the UK and globally. The predictability of the tidal resource is a key benefit and will become increasingly important to help balance more varied supply from other renewables as the UK and other nations develop robust low carbon energy networks. As a Research Associate and under the general supervision of line manager, you will play a key role in the research developments such as:

a) Life-cycle damage analysis & structural reliability
b) Digitalisation enabled operation & maintenance

You will be expected to write up project reports and produce high-quality journal/conference publications. Additionally, you will need to contribute to the securing of funds for research, including drafting grant proposals and planning for future proposals.

To be considered for the role, you should have a minimum of PhD level in an appropriate discipline such as offshore engineering, ocean engineering and structural engineering, or have significant relevant experience in addition to a relevant degree. You should have sufficient breadth or depth of knowledge in:

  • Marine renewables
  • Structural and structural integrity analysis
  • Structural reliability
  • Structural inspection planning
  • Structural monitoring

You will have an ability to conduct individual research work, to plan and organise your own workload effectively and to work within a team environment. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to listen, engage and persuade, and to present complex information in an accessible way to a range of audiences.

Whilst not essential for the role, applications are welcomed from candidates with: relevant work experience, membership of relevant Chartered/professional bodies (including the Higher Education Academy), experience of relevant student supervision and teaching activities, and/or experience of knowledge exchange related activities.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Prof Feargal Brennan, James Blyth Distinguished Professor of Offshore Engineering (feargal.brennan@strath.ac.uk).

Formal interviews for this post are scheduled to be held on Wednesday, 10 April 2024.
