Postdoctoral position in ocean waves at University College Dublin
Closing date: 10 July 2014

Further details on the project:

Inquiries about the position and the application process may be addressed to: 
Frederic Dias, Head of the wave group (

This postdoctoral position is within the multidisciplinary research project
MULTIWAVE funded by the European Research Council from
2012-2016 to investigate the physics of rogue waves in hydrodynamics and optics.
By studying the physical similarities between extreme dynamics in these two
systems, the aim is to generate new insight into the generation mechanisms of
the infamous and destructive oceanic rogue waves.  MULTIWAVE is a collaborative
project between two partners: University College Dublin in Ireland and the CNRS
Institute FEMTO-ST in Besançon, France.   

The main aim of this particular post is the development of numerical and
statistical techniques for the analysis of highest-amplitude extreme events. The
candidate will use both direct numerical simulations of the free surface Euler
equations and third generation wave models such as Wavewatch III. 

The following skills are highly desirable: 
* expertise in numerical met-ocean models: WAVEWATCH, SWAN, ROMS, WRF
* expertise in meteorological data analysis and visualization
* expertise in ocean waves
* expertise in fluid mechanics
* expertise in statistics

The salary will be €33,975 or more, depending on the qualifications and
experience of the candidate. 

The starting date is 01 September 2014 (at latest) and the contract duration is
18 months. 

The wave group in the School of Mathematical Sciences at University College
Dublin is very dynamic and gathers more than 15 faculty, postdocs and PhD students.
