Two 2-Year Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions – Applications invited

Applications are invited for two 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship in coastal ocean dynamics related to tidal hydroelectricity development using in-steam tidal energy converters in the Bay of Fundy, Canada, home to the world’s highest tides. The positions are part of a collaborative project of three Canadian universities (Acadia University, Dalhousie University and the University of New Brunswick) and three private sector companies involved in tidal energy development and turbine design and manufacture (Fundy Tidal Inc., Design Systems Analysis, and Clean Current). The project involves a comprehensive hydrodynamic site assessment for three passages in the lower Bay of Fundy, each of which is targeted for the development of in-stream turbines in the next few years under the Nova Scotia Community Feed in Tariff program.  The project has a wide scope, encompassing flow variability on time scales from turbulent to annual, through a combined field measurement and numerical modelling effort. The project also has an aggressive time-line, with turbine deployment in one of the passages scheduled for the fall of 2014, to be accompanied by a post-deployment measurement and modelling program.
