Postdoctoral Researcher in Offshore Renewable Energy – Sensor Systems

The University of Hull is part of a EPSRC funded Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Hub which brings together 10 UK universities to share skills, resources and expertise across the field of wave, tidal and offshore wind energy (www.supergen-ore.net). As part of the core research programme we are seeking to appoint a Post Doctoral Researcher to investigate the application of fibre optic sensors to monitor strain and deformation in large, flexible ORE devices and structures to support improved lifetime prediction and yield optimisation. The ORE structures considered will include wind and tidal turbine blades, dynamic power cables and flexible/membrane-based wave energy converters.

The person appointed will join a large research team and will focus on the development and deployment of fibre optic sensor and signal processing systems. It is anticipated that this will make use of a combination of discrete (grating-based) and continuous sensor types with appropriate signal processing and data integration techniques.

Duties will include the definition of sensing system requirements, selection of appropriate sensing technologies, development of deployment strategies, performance evaluation using physical and mathematical models and assessment of routes to integration into full scale systems.

Candidates should have a PhD in Electronic Engineering, fibre optic sensor systems or a related discipline. Experience of research in offshore renewable energy systems and floating structures would be an advantage.

The University of Hull holds the Athena SWAN University Bronze Award in recognition of its commitment to advancing women's careers in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM) employment and offers a number of family-friendly employment practices that are designed to enable a good work-life balance.

The post is available immediately as a full-time position of 36.5 hours per week for 3 year. Alternative working patterns, including part time and job share arrangements, will be considered.
