The Centre for Ocean Energy Research (COER) at Maynooth University, Ireland has further opportunities for four well-qualified applicants interested in PhD level research on a prestigious new Science Foundation Ireland ocean energy project:

Economic wave energy through technical innovation (SeaChange)

This project proposes a combination of strategic technological improvements, with both broad applicability as well as specific device improvements, to effect a significant impact on the economic performance of wave energy systems and produce the step change needed to accelerate the technical and commercial development of wave power.  Collaborators have been drawn from the University of Illinois (USA), CorPower Ocean AB (Sweden), National Renewable Energy Lab. (NREL, USA) and TU Denmark.

The positions

A tax-free stipend of €18,500 per year is available, and PhD fees are also covered. The project also provides adequate funding for equipment, materials and travel (conferences, courses, etc), as well as secondment to project partners.  The positions are tenable for a 4-year structured PhD.

Applicants should be well qualified to bachelors or master’s degree level (ideally H1) in one of the following areas: mechanical/mechatronic engineering, electronic engineering, control engineering, or exceptional students in applied maths or hydrodynamics may be considered. The project will be supervised by Prof. John Ringwood and will particularly suit candidates with an aptitude for control.
