Development of a framework for maritime human risk-informed design

Human operators play a crucial role in terms of achieving safe and efficient marine operations. Because of significant human involvement in maritime operations, it is not surprising to observe that when a maritime accident happens it is often attributed to some sort of human error. Read more

PhD Studentship: Safe and Green Search and Rescue Craft

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2021 for 4 years. Overview. The RNLI aims to achieve a zero carbon operation by 2050 and this includes the operation of its extensive fleet of rescue craft. Read more

SFI Centre for Research Training in Genomic Data Science: Human Health Risks Associated with Harmful Algal Bloom (HAB) Contaminated Seafood

Queen’s University Belfast has become a partner of the SFI CRT in Genomics Data Science, which was formed in 2019. Over seven years of operation, the Centre will train 100 PhD students in data analytical and computational skills that will help power the implementation of genomics on the island of Ireland.

On Analysis and Design of Submerged Wave Energy Devices

We invite applications for a Ph.D. position in Marine Hydrodynamics and Ocean Engineering at the University of Dundee, Scotland. The project aims in analyzing new generation of wave energy devices that are fully submerged, namely an Oscillating Submerged Disc, and a Wave Carpet. Read more

Ocean Mixing Parameterisation via Categorisation of Nonlinear Flow Structures – Project 2: Experimental Validation

One of the key challenges for large-scale climate models is to accurately parameterise the mixing which occurs in the oceans. Such mixing occurs at small-scales, well below the grid-resolution of the climate models, and consists of the turbulent exchange of heat and salt between neighbouring regions of fluid. Read more

Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output). Read more

Understanding historical climate change using multiple data sources

Background. Understanding how temperatures have changed since the start of the industrial revolution is key to understanding how human activity is likely to shape future climate, as well as for the evaluation of climate model simulations. Read more
