[Met-jobs] Vacancy for Marine Renewable Energy modeller: National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool

From "Polton, Jeffrey" <>

Date Mon, 2 Feb 2015 15:10:53 +0000

We are seeking to recruit a marine scientist/numerical modeller to join our 
world leading team in coastal-ocean modelling. The successful applicant will 
work on the application of coupled hydrodynamic-wave models to the study of 
Marine Renewable Energy Devices, assessing resources and impacts of proposed 
schemes across the NW European shelf seas.

In this role you will be expected to setup up, run and analyse coupled and 
stand alone wave and hydrodynamic models, using the most appropriate of our 
suite of modelling tools including NEMO, POLCOMS, WAM and Wave Watch III, and 
also the unstructured models, ADCIRC and FVCOM. Within these you will develop 
methodologies for the implementation of wave and tidal stream devices to assess 
their potential for energy extraction and impacts on the physical environment, 
and to write scientific papers and present findings at project workshops and 
international scientific conferences. Opportunities exist to develop this work 
further with the ERSEM ecosystem model.

The post is partly funded by the EPSRC EcoWatt2050 project 
(, on which you 
will be working as part of an experienced UK team led by Prof Jon Side of the 
Heriot-Watt University in Orkney, which is looking at the impact of large 
arrays of marine renewable energy devices and the effects of climate change.
This post is offered on NERC terms and conditions and is available initially 
for a fixed term of 2 years.

£26,715 to £30,000 per annum (additional allowances may be available for 
exceptional candidates)
