Europe – Mercredi 1er/04/2020 – TIGER project are looking for a Post-Doctoral Research fellow for a ~3-year full time post. The funding has been secured as part of the EU INTERREG Channel Area TIGER project. The aim of the project is to deploy in-stream tidal energy devices at various sites in the UK and Northern France.  The University of Plymouth is contributing tidal resource modelling and analysis of flow data. 



This role will suit a researcher who not only has relevant technical expertise but who also has a passion for in-stream tidal energy and collaborative research. The Post-Doc will support a programme of research to engage in modelling tidal flows at different sites (e.g. using DELFT3D), and analyse ADCP data from these sites to determine velocity and turbulence characteristics.


You will work with Dr Jon Miles, Dr David Simmonds, Dr Martyn Hann and Professor Deborah Greaves in the COAST research group.

You are expected to publish results of the TIGER project in leading academic journals.  You are also expected to take part in publicising the project and topic, including delivering outreach and stakeholder events, taking part in workshops, project meetings in the UK and in France, higher education, conferences, and working collaboratively with our European research partners. Further details of the desired characteristics for this post can be seen in the job description. Links are given below.


For an informal information please contact Dr Jon Miles by email 

Application closing date is 3/5/2020. Interviews are likely to take place in May 2020. The TIGER project runs until June 2023.
