[Met-jobs] Postdoctoral research position on Coastal Modeling at Caen University - France

From Anne-Claire BENNIS <ac.bennis@unicaen.fr>

Dear members,

A 18-months postdoctoral research position is available within the project HYD2M "HYDrodynamic of raz blanchard: Measurements and Modelings". The HYD2M project (http://hyd2m.criann.fr/en/) seeks to establish an international research collaboration between some industrial (DCNS, EDF, OpenHydro) and academic partners (UNICAEN, FEM, ULCO, CNRS, Ifremer, SHOM, U. Hawaii, U. Plymouth, U. Sheffield) in order to study effects of wave-current-turbulence interactions on the tidal energy estimate.

Postdoctoral position aims to improve numerical modeling of the oceanic turbulence in a 3D fully-coupled wave-current model, based on the vortex force formalism, by the use of efficient and innovative methods relating to large eddy simulations.

Please find below the official advert with more informations.

Best regards.

Anne-Claire Bennis

Job Title: ANR HYD2M: postdoctoral research assistant (PDRA) in coastal modeling
Location: University of Caen Normandy (Caen, France)
Start date: May 2017
Type of contract: Fixed term contract lasting 18 months

1) ANR HYD2M
In the framework of the development of marine renewable energy in France, particular interests are focuses
on Raz Blanchard (Northern Cotentin, France) where the mosty energetic tidal currents of the Western
Europe occur (up to 12 knots). Several tidal farms will be installed next years inside Raz Blanchard. The
HYD2M project (2016-2019, PI: A-C. Bennis) seeks to establish an international research collaboration
between some industrial (DCNS, EDF, OpenHydro) and academic partners (UNICAEN, FEM, ULCO,
CNRS, Ifremer, SHOM, U. Hawaii, U. Plymouth, U. Sheffield) in order to study effects of wave-currentturbulence
interactions on the tidal energy estimate.

2) Technical Deliverable for this position
This position aims to improve numerical modeling of oceanic turbulence in a 3D fully-coupled wave-current
model, based on the vortex force formalism, by the use of efficient and innovative methods relating to large
eddy simulations.

3) Competences and skills sought for PDRA based in Caen University
Coastal oceanography, numerical modeling, wave-current interactions, programming skills (Fortran 90,
Python, Matlab).

4) Person specification
We seek to appoint a research assistant, with a recently obtained PhD or equivalent experience, to contribute
to the following deliverables of HYD2M:
- Modeling of wave-current-turbulence interactions.
- Contribution to reports, conferences abstracts, conference proceedings and peer-reviewed publications.
- Preparation of project dissemination materials for different target audiences, e.g: researchers, stakeholders,
policy makers or politicians, and school children
- Organization of workshops, meetings and conferences within HYD2M.

5) Advisor: A.-C. Bennis (University of Caen Normandy)

6) How to apply: Please send a CV, a letter of motivation (up to one page long), and the names of two
potential referees, to anne-claire.bennis@unicaen.fr

7) Receipt of Applications
Applications will be received up to 15th March 2017. Interviews are expected to take place the 30th March
2017.
