Denmark PhD Sholarship on Wave-to-Wire Modeling of Wave Energy Devices

Denmark PhD Sholarship on Wave-to-Wire Modeling of Wave Energy Devices

“Wave-to-wire modeling of wave energy devices” The structural design of the wave energy device project (SDWED) is an international alliance of research over a five year period aims to harness the energy potential of wave energy at competitive costs. The prospect of the project is to develop design tools and design of a common base devices wave energy to make them more reliable and economically competitive. The main innovation of the project is a goal of developing a model of wave-to-cable will be able to generate structural design specifications based on the parameters related to the hydrodynamics, the PTO and moorings. This has the potential to drastically reduce the cost of energy produced while increasing the reliability of the devices for wave energy.

This PhD scholarship is one of four funded through the research project SDWED (two are placed with the University of Aalborg and the others are placed with the Technical University of Denmark and the University of Bologna). The aim of the scholarship published here is in developing models of wireless wave energy devices waves.

Qualification requirements:
The PhD scholarship is assigned to an individual who has a master’s degree, preferably in civil or mechanical engineering. or similar title, with an academic level equivalent to masters degree in engineering. Strong skills in scientific computing, applied mathematics and programming in one or more major programming tools like C / C + + / Matlab are preferred and an interest in the use of wave power is required. As the main focus will be to integrate the study of hydrodynamics, power take-off and tie model components in a wave of cable model is an advantage to have a multidisciplinary background.
You can get more information from Professor Jens Peter Kofoed, Department of Civil Engineering, Research Group on Wave Energy, telephone: +45 9940 8474 on the technical aspects of the scholarship.

PhD scholarships are allocated to people who have a master. PhD scholarships are normally for a period of 3 years. Is a prerequisite for the allocation of the scholarship that she will be enrolled as a PhD student in the Doctoral School of the Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine, in accordance with the regulations of Ministerial Order No. 18 of January 14 2008 on the PhD Program in Universities. According to the Ministerial Order, the progress of graduate students are evaluated every six months. Is a prerequisite for the continued payment of salaries which was approved earlier gains at the time of evaluation.
The qualifications of the nominees will be evaluated by an evaluation committee. Based on the recommendation of the evaluation committee, the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Science and Medicine will make a decision for the allocation of the scholarship.

For further information about stipends and salary contact Ms. Heidi Cramer, The Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine, phone: +45 9940 7582.
The faculties have a research school, The Doctoral School of Engineering, Science and Medicine: and a Network for all PhD students:

At the Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine, Department of Civil Engineering a PhD stipend is available within the general study programme Civil Engineering. The stipend is open for appointment from January 1, 2011.


Appointment and salary as a PhD fellow are according to the Ministry of Finance Circular of January 11, 2006 on the Collective Agreement for Academics in Denmark, Appendix 5, regarding PhD fellows, and with the Ministry of Finance Circular of June 13, 2007 on the employment structure at Danish Universities.
