College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences
These 2x full-time posts (Ref: P83016 and P83017) are available from 1st July 2022 to 30th June 2023 and is part of projects involving the University of Exeter. They are funded through the European Regional Development Fund and forms part of the European Strategic Investment Framework for Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly.
Both roles offer the opportunity for hybrid working – some time on campus and some from home.
Summary of the role
You will support the work of Prof Lars Johanning within the Renewable Energy Group, at the Penryn Campus in Cornwall. The research projects are part of an ERDF project, CORNWALL FLOW ACCELERATOR, aimed to underpin the deployment of 1000MW worth of floating offshore wind (FOW) by 2030, developing a low carbon footprint approach to floating offshore wind operations leading to significant CO2 reductions.
Project One (Ref P83016) (Logistic and O&M) will lead on research activities with a particular focus towards O&M strategies and logistics, whilst contributing to mooring and power cable installation processes. You will be expected to lead on the development of O&M strategies addressing dependencies that can be used in engineering decision making processes. Furthermore, the post will include detailed simulation of floating offshore wind processes that is informed by outputs, observations and recommendations from O&M, logistic and engineering needs, considering real scenario drivers, to enable the development of a FLOWSimulator.
Project Two (Ref P83017) (FLOW Carbon Intensity) will lead on research activities with a particular focus towards decarbonization of the existing marine supply chain SMEs and the potential new entrants to support Floating Offshore Wind has significant SME engagement and the lifecycle assessment of products and services is a frequent demand-led research and business support request. Furthermore, the post will include detailed simulation of floating offshore wind processes that is informed by outputs, observations and recommendations from carbon intensity study and engineering needs, considering real scenario drivers, to enable the development of a FLOWSimulator.
Please indicate in your application which project you are particularly interest in.

We offer some fantastic benefits including:
The University of Exeter
We are a member of the prestigious Russell Group of research-intensive universities and in the top 150 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2022 and QS World University Ranking 2022).
Our research income in recent years means we’re the fastest growing UK Research University with some of the world’s most influential scientists, and we seek to answer some of the most fundamental issues facing humankind today through this. More than 99% of our research is of international quality and our world-leading research impact is growing faster than any other Russell Group university (2021 Research Excellence Framework). We encourage proactive engagement with industry, business and community partners to enhance the impact of research and education and improve the employability of our students. Read about our world leading research – Green Futures and how we are transforming education for a changing world. We are located in a beautiful part of the country and Exeter (a fast growing tech hub) is one of only a few UK cities to have been designated as a UNESCO Creative City.
Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commitment
With over 27,000 students and 6,400 staff from 180 different countries we offer a diverse and engaging environment where our diversity is celebrated and valued as a major strength. We are committed to creating an inclusive culture where all members of our community are supported to thrive; where diverse voices are heard through our engagement with evidence-based charter frameworks for gender (Athena SWAN), race equality (Race Equality Charter Mark), LGBTQ+ inclusion (Stonewall Diversity Champion) and as a Disability Confident employer. Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit alone, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented within our working community. Reasonable adjustments are available for interviews and workplaces.
