Job Offer:
Position: PhD Researcher in Offshore Wind Farm Flow Dynamics


We are in search of a dedicated PhD student to delve into the flow dynamics 
within offshore wind farms using innovative computer simulations. With the 
burgeoning size of wind turbines and farms, particularly offshore, they 
encounter novel challenges arising from unique atmospheric turbulence that 
remains poorly understood.

This PhD project forms a pivotal component of the UMRP collaboration between 
UM6P and MIT, dedicated to advancing and implementing groundbreaking large-eddy 
simulation techniques to investigate the potential deployment of offshore wind 
farms in Morocco. Your research will entail dissecting the intricate 
interactions between wind and waves, with a keen focus on evaluating their 
collective impact on the efficiency of wind farms.


We are seeking motivated early-career researchers with a robust foundation in 
fluid dynamics, mechanical engineering, computational physics, applied physics, 
mathematics, geophysics, or related fields. Proficiency in programming languages 
such as Fortran, C/C++, and/or Python is advantageous. Ideal candidates will 
thrive in an international setting, actively contributing to collaborative 
research endeavors. Strong communication skills, coupled with a readiness to 
present findings at conferences and meetings, are highly desirable. Proficiency 
in both spoken and written English is imperative. We encourage candidates to 
embrace a high degree of responsibility and exhibit independence while fostering 
close collaborations with colleagues.

Our Offer:

- Full-time employment for four years
- Access to cutting-edge research facilities, including the African 
Supercomputing Center Toubkal.
- Monthly remuneration of approximately 1000 euros
- Complimentary access to campus sports facilities
- Opportunity for on-campus lodging
