University of Western Australia,Senior Research Fellow Jobs in Australia

Offshore Floating Facilities
  • 2 year appointment (possibility for renewal)
  • Salary range: Level C $114,117 - $131,622 p.a. (commensurate with experience)
  • 17% Superannuation
  • Friendly, vibrant research environment with an internationally-leading research reputation
About the role:
The ARC Industrial Transformation Research Hub for Offshore Floating Facilities (ITRH OFF) is a 5-year initiative led by a team of 15 academic staff principally based in the Centre for Offshore Foundation Systems, the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering (CEME) and the School of Mathematics and Statistics. The ITRH involves 5 interlinked projects that span critical engineering challenges associated with the design and operation of current and new offshore floating facilities. The research program involves a blend of physical and numerical modelling supported by fieldwork and analysis of observations from existing facilities.
This position will involve being the Hub Manager and will assist the Hub Director in
  • coordinating and reporting all ITRH OFF activities,
  • collaborating and engaging with IRTH OFF industry partners, and supporting the transfer of the ITRH OFF research into practice,
  • managing ITRH OFF outreach and communications program and researcher training and mentoring program, and
  • conducting high quality research in one or more of the following research areas:
(1) Metocean: design, implementation and analysis of mean and turbulent field observations of non-linear internal waves and numerical modelling of non-linear internal waves, leading to new design criteria.
(2) Floating hydrodynamics: physical modelling, computational fluid dynamics and back-analysis of field observations of floating body motions; development of design tools, with a focus on side-by-side offloading and/or greenwater.
(3) Risers and moorings: advancing riser/mooring-seabed interaction models, developing complete system models of mooring configurations for optimisation, quantifying structural fatigue and assessing long-term geotechnical response of anchors.
(4) Foundations and anchors: physical and numerical modelling to underpin new approaches for subsea foundation design; development and deployment of novel anchor technology.
(5) Data analytics, integrity and operational decision-making: Use statistical and reliability-based methods for condition assessment and prediction of mooring system behaviour.
To be considered for this role, you will demonstrate:
  • A PhD in a discipline relevant to offshore engineering, or equivalent experience in industry practice
  • Relevant research experience or advanced engineering practice at an appropriate level in one of the following fields: oceanography, hydrodynamics, structural dynamics, geotechnics, applied mathematics or statistics
  • Experience in preparing manuscripts for publication and giving presentations at conferences
  • Experience in supervising and training postgraduate or undergraduate research students, or extensive supervision of engineers in industry
  • Experience interacting with the offshore engineering industry
  • Highly developed written and verbal communication skills
  • Ability to work independently, show initiative and work productively as part of a team
  • Commitment to service roles in the workplace
  • Commitment to inclusivity and diversity in the workplace
  • Experience working in industry
Closing date: Monday 23 November 2015
Benefits include generous superannuation and leave provisions and fares to Perth (if applicable) for appointee and dependants along with a removal allowance. These and other benefits will be specified in the offer of employment.
