PhD Studetnship Offshore Ocean Farming in All Fields at University of Southampton

University of Southampton, UK is inviting applicants to apply for a PhD position. The funds for this position are available for 5 years. Potential candidates should apply before August 31, 2020.

Offshore ocean farms have huge potential however, all previous attempts at offshore ocean farming have been unsuccessful. A major challenge and vision is the ability to capture ambient energy and realise self-sufficient remote operation.

This is a major challenge because the recoverable power is highly dependent on the farm configuration and conditions (array layout, separation, number, wave direction) and the time varying hydrodynamic properties (with significant changes in wetted surface, porosity, permeability, mass, volume etc. over a growth cycle).

References: Austin, Alexandria, et al. “Novel concepts for offshore ocean farming.” (2019).

A very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent).

:applications should be received no later than 31 August 2020 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

Funding: full tuition fees for EU/UK students plus for UK students, an enhanced stipend of 15,009 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.

Applications should be made online here selecting "PhD Eng & Env (Full time)" as the programme. Please enter Nicholas Townsend under the proposed supervisor.
