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).

 

Applications can be sent until the position is filled and the announcement removed from http://modb.oce.ulg.ac.be/mediawiki/index.php/Jobs.
