PhD Scholarship Position in Meterology at Uppsala University

A PhD scholarship in fluid mechanics is available at Uppsala University. Potential candidates should apply before June 21, 2019.

The interest in wind energy has increased rapidly in many parts of the world. This project will focus on wind power in typical Swedish conditions (forests, complex terrain and near-shore conditions). There is currently a knowledge gap how severe the effects from such conditions are for turbine performance and life length. The research team at Uppsala University Campus Gotland has a long experience of simulations of flows using CFD tools. The CFD models used today are able to accurately perform power output estimations of individual turbines offshore. The work will comprise developing, evaluating turbine models for typical Swedish conditions with special emphasis on load estimations.

As a PhD student in meteorology with a focus on wind energy, you participate in a research group that focuses on fluid mechanics around individual wind turbines and wind farms. This project focuses on further development of established numerical models to also include loads estimations. In addition to the work on research projects and graduate courses, you will participate in other activities within the section of wind energy.

Requirements: For a PhD student it is required that you are admitted or will be admitted to research education where the ability to follow the research education is essential. The applicant should have an academic degree in either engineering, physics, meteorology. Knowledge in mathematics and physics is required alongside experiences in using advanced CFD tools and programming in object oriented languages.
