£30,046 to £33,797 Full time – 35 hours per week (flexible working, reduced hours, part time and job share options are available)

The primary purpose is to write and publish software modelling tools for tidal turbines.  The postholder will be responsible for maintenance of the software archive (eg github), documentation and training materials. This research post will be part of a European Regional Development Fund project SELKIE, which aims to support the Marine Energy sector in Wales and Ireland.

Masters Studentship – Wave and Tidal Sensors

€24,000 stipend per annum. Fees are payable by the student.

The aims of the research topic is to design new sensors or modify existing sensors such that they specifically meet the requirements of the wave and tidal industries.
The Masters candidate will conduct a specified programme of research under the supervision and direction of Dr.Guangbo Hao, UCC. The research programme will include a series of work packages that involve the publication of journal papers on marine sensors contributing to the overall Selkie Project. Research work on the Selkie project is suitable for a Masters thesis and ultimately publication.
