Functieomschrijving

Current design methods are severely limited when considering the challenges of designing safe and effective structural systems for future marine systems such as complex autonomous ships, mega floating sea-structures, floating wind turbines, or delta infrastructures. Such new complex marine systems have sizes and lifetime operability and reliability requirements unlike anything we have previously engineered. Accounting for the extreme loading and fatigue situations these structures will face during their lifetime is a particularly challenging design problem. As engineers seek innovative solutions to further tap the potential of the maritime sector, they will need advanced design and analysis methods to understand whether these systems are sufficiently reliable.

The main challenge for the PhD will be devoted to developing new methods to identify relevant sea states expected to lead to extreme loading of these novel systems and determine the resulting statistics of lifetime loading and fatigue.

Functie-eisen

We are looking for a candidate with a MSc degree in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering/ Maritime Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, or a related subject with strong interests in marine structures, hydrodynamics, digital signal processing, and data mining or “big data” techniques. Experience in the fatigue of marine structures, probability, and statistics is a major plus. Strong communications skills and a very good command of the English language are required.

Conditions

TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
As a PhD candidate you will be enrolled in the TU Delft Graduate School.
