The postdoctoral candidate will be affiliated within Laboratory of Hydrodynamics, Energetics and Atmospheric Environment (LHEEA) of Centrale Nantes, in the Ocean wave and marine renewable energy team. He will collaborate with research engineers from the Scientific and Technical Center for Building (CSTB) and will interact with industrial entities (AKROCEAN, EDF Renouvelables, VALOREM) that support the project, provide background on offshore wind resource assessment and provide data.
He will be in charge of:

  • processing the database provided by industrial partners in order to assess the measurement error on the turbulence intensity obtained with floating and fixed LiDAR profiler measurements
  • determining the influence of the sea state on the turbulence intensity measurement accuracy
  • developing and testing algorithms to correct the biased information
  • writing the specifications of a displacement system able to impose to a LiDAR system controlled motions similar to full scale floating motions


The application should be sent by email to Sandrine Aubrun and Philippe Delpech. The email should contain the following documents, compiled in the following order into a single PDF file (6MBs max):

  • Covering letter
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • The PhD certificate (or letter from the supervisor attesting that the PhD will be awarded before January 1st, 2020)
  • Recommendation letter(s) from previous supervisors or employers
  • Work experience certificates, if applicable
  • List of publications, if applicable

Beginning in March 2020
