Senior Researcher in Green Shipping
At DTU Civil and Mechanical Engineering, section of Fluid Mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering, we are looking for a Senior researcher
At DTU Civil and Mechanical Engineering, section of Fluid Mechanics, Coastal and Maritime Engineering, we are looking for a Senior researcher in the field of Green Shipping for the maritime industry.
The shipping industry faces special challenges to make the transition to carbon free transport by 2050. Zero-carbon shipping will require a combination of improved operational, hydrodynamic and propulsive efficiency, and alternative energy sources including green fuels and auxiliary wind and/or wave propulsion. A key element to the success of this transition is the ability to accurately model the seakeeping and added resistance of new ship designs, including the complex interaction between the hull and advanced propulsion systems, in order to ensure safe and efficient operation under all conditions.
Responsibilities and qualifications
- Develop and extend models for wind propulsion systems and their interaction with hull hydrodynamics
- Model and evaluate alternative ‘whale-tail’ and ‘shark-tail’ propulsion systems
- Supervise PhD and MSc students working on maritime related projects
- Maintain collaboration with other DTU departments, external academic partners, and industrial partners
- Establish new collaboration projects to benefit students and research activities
- Secure funding for R & D projects from national and international sources
- Manage and report on research projects to external partners and funding providers
- Publish in high-quality journals and coach junior researchers and PhD students to do the same

As a formal qualification you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent) as well as academic qualifications equivalent to those obtained by holding a position as a researcher or postdoc. To be appointed as a senior researcher, you must have completed a didactic/pedagogic education.
