Postdoctoral position in ocean acoustics at the University of Liège (Belgium)


The research project aims to contribute to the sustainable development and 
noise reduction of activities related to offshore wind parks in Europe. The 
objective of the project is to develop and validate a sound propagation model 
for the ocean capable to give a precise evaluation of the noise level in the 
ocean generated by wind parks and to quantify it. The project should also 
develop an appropriate measurement strategy related to this question. The 
project is coordinated by a company in the region of Liège (Belgium). The 
duration of the project is 24 months starting in summer or autumn 2013.

A postdoctoral researcher will be employed at the University of Liège for the 
duration of the project. The researcher will be in charge of the development, 
programming and validation of the sound propagation model in collaboration with 
the partners of the project:

* GHER (research unit in physical oceanography of the University of Liège)
* Intelsig (research unit in exploitation of signals and images of the 
University of Liège)
* An industrial partner coordinating the project.

Profile:

* PhD in science or engineering
* The candidate should ideally have experience in acoustics or in a related 
domain (wave propagation)
* Expertise in mathematical modelling to simulate physical problems

Candidates should send a their CV (including the complete reference of their 
peer-reviewed scientific publications) and a short letter of motivation to the 
secretary of Prof. Jean-Marie Beckers (C. Peelen, 
oceanphys@ulg.ac.be<mailto:oceanphys@ulg.ac.be>). Applications can be sent 
until the position is filled and the announcement removed from 
http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/Jobs.
