Position: Assistant Professor in Floating Wind Turbines
Institution: Technical University of Denmark
Location: Kongens Lyngby, Lyngby‐Taarbæk Municipality, Denmark
Duties: The position involves research in hydrodynamic submodels and their application in state-of-the-art aero-hydro-servo-elastic models. The models are applied to study the forcing from extreme waves and viscous damping effects. Also modelling of large floaters with flexible motion and mooring systems will be undertaken. The models are verified against known theoretical results and experimental data in close collaboration with the DTU team and international research partners. The candidate will further take part in model scale testing of floating wind turbines; The position further involves teaching within offshore wind energy, coordination of DTU activities within different research projects, active participation in funding applications and supervision of MSc/PhD students; Candidates must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent); The successful candidate must further demonstrate profound knowledge in the field of floating wind turbines and associated numerical models. This includes documented research results within: Dynamic response of offshore structures; Development of aero-hydro-servo-elastic models for floating wind turbines; Models for nonlinear wave loads; Model tests of floating wind turbines; Further, you must have a broad knowledge on Offshore Wind Energy
