Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Fluid Mechanics
Position as Postdoctoral Research Fellow available at the Department of Mathematics. The Post Doctoral fellowship will be for a period of 2 years. Starting date no later than 01.01.2017. No one can be appointed for more than one fixed-term period at the same institution.
The position is connected with the Petromaks 2 innovation project "Rigspray" hosted by DNV GL – funded by the Research council of Norway and industrial partners. The purpose of this project is to obtain sea spray measurements and to develop a prototype tool for estimating marine icing from long time series of environmental data. At UiO problems which are of fundamental interest for marine icing, related to wave, wind and the resulting spray conditions in the vicinity of an offshore installation will be addressed.
The position is affiliated with the Section for Mechanics, which currently has 7 full-time academic positions, 5 adjunct positions, 3 post.doc and 16 PhD students. This section works with theory, modeling and experiments on fundamental and practical aspects of fluid- and solid mechanics. The group studies the fundamental physical processes associated with fluids and fluid motion that are essential to the understanding, protection and improvement of the environment, to production of renewable energy from wind and waves and to safer and cleaner development of petroleum resources.
In recent times the section has had several research projects related to wave forces on structures, waves and currents, multiphase flow, tsunamis and turbulence. Also topics within renewable energy, offshore technology, biomedical flow and coastal engineering are addressed in ongoing research programs.
A good command of English is required.
Pay Grade: 57 – 65 (NOK 468 100 – 567 100 per year, depending on qualifications and seniority).
