Two positions for master researchers have been made available at the Centre for Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering (CENTEC), at Instituto Superior Técnico of the University of Lisbon.

As part of the GenPTO project (Generic Hydraulic Power Take-Off System for Wave Energy Converters), CENTEC is looking to hire a researcher to join its team that has been designing and implementing a power take–off (PTO) generic control approach that is adaptable to different wave energy converters.

Funded by the Portuguese National Funding Agency for Science, Research and Technology, the project will build on the results obtained in the previous project, and take a step towards its implementation, according to CENTEC.

The second position available at CENTEC will be tasked with researching the hydroelastic behavior of flexible floating structures, related to wave or wind renewable energy.

The work will be conducted by a team that has been working both with wave energy and with floating wind turbines, and will consist of implementing numerical approaches to modeling and analysis of hydroelastic behavior of these structures, CENTEC noted.

To be eligible to apply for either of the positions, the interested candidate must be an experienced Master researcher or recent PhD graduate, CENTEC noted.
