PhD position 3 (f/m/d): Simulations of offshore wind farm turbulence

Are you captivated by the intricacies of fluid mechanics, the complexities of turbulence, the power of highperformance computing, and the potential of wind energy? If you're passionate about pioneering research and eager to be part of a dynamic team, we have an exciting opportunity for you. We're seeking an enthusiastic PhD candidate to study flow dynamics in offshore wind farms, developing novel computer simulations. As the scale of wind turbines and farms expands, particularly in offshore settings, they present novel challenges due to the unique atmospheric turbulence phenomena in the marine environment remain largely uncharted. This PhD project is part of the ERC Consolidator Grant project WINDFLOW, which strives to develop groundbreaking large-eddy simulation strategies for wind farm flows. Your research will illuminate the intricate dynamics between wind and waves, assessing their influence on the efficiency of offshore wind farms. This is a chance to advance knowledge in renewable energy and significantly contribute to improving wind farm efficiency. Join us in advancing the frontier of wind energy fluid mechanics research!
