Associate professor in Ocean and Coastal Engineering 1 (2021-224-03515)
At the Faculty of Engineering and Science, Department of the Built
Environment a position as Associate Professor in Ocean and Coastal Engineering
is open for appointment from 1st October 2021 or soon hereafter. The position
is belonging to the Division of Marine and Environmental Engineering and the
research group in Ocean and Coastal Engineering.The Department of
the Built Environment focuses on the technical and scientific disciplines
within the built environment. Research areas span from Indoor Environment and
Energy Efficient buildings, Wind Turbines, Structural Design, Structural
Materials, Geotechnical Engineering, Wave Energy to Traffic along with many
other areas. The research is conducted in a national as well as an
international research environment. The department takes on contract research
for both public institutions and private companies. The research projects
involve both theoretical research and in situ measurements along with
laboratory experiments. As an employee at the Department of the Built
Environment, you become a part of an international research environment, where
focus is on innovation, knowledge sharing and interdisciplinary
The Division of Marine and Environmental Engineering conducts research and
teaching in marine and environmental engineering, water pollution, hydrology
and physical geography.
The position is opened in the Ocean and Coastal Engineering Research Group, a
group that today consists of 6 tenure staff, 2 postdocs, 1 research assistant,
1 PhD student, 1 lab technician and a handful of master students. The research
group conduct research within the field of ocean waves and hydrodynamic
modelling, with particular focus on marine renewables and coastal structures.
The research is primarily carried out through externally funded collaborative
projects, involving both private and public organizations. The group has a
modern and well equipped laboratory including a wave basin and a wave flume.
The research areas for the position will be within maritime structures, in
specific primarily within offshore renewable energy structures such as
floating wind turbines and wave energy converters. The research will focus on
both experimental and numerical modelling of such structures, but also other
areas of civil engineering. The research into the floating renewable energy
structures will address both installation, operational and extreme conditions,
where evaluation of design loads, mooring layout design and cost
optimizations. A major issue in design of offshore floating structures is
analysis of moorings and hydrodynamics. We thus look for an applicant with
research focus in both experimental and numerical modelling of these areas.
Teaching will primarily be in Byggeri og Anlæg (BSc) and Structural and
Civil Engineering (MSc) and courses at the PhD School, but also in other
study programmes at the University. Examples of teaching modules presently
given by the research group are:
Introduktion til teknisk rapportskrivning (BSc)
Grundlæggende modeller og beregninger inden for byggeri- og anlæg (BSc)
Fluid and Water Wave Dynamics (MSc)
Coastal, Offshore and Port Engineering (MSc)
The Excitation and Foundation of Marine Structures (MSc)
Renewable Energy Structures: Wind Turbines and Wave Energy Devices (MSc)
Numerical and Experimental Modelling of Wave Energy Converters (PhD)
Generation and Analysis of Waves in Physical Models (PhD)

The level of qualification for Associate Professors shall correspond to the
level, which can be achieved on the basis of the appointment as Assistant
Professor, but may be achievable in other ways. The appointment presupposes
that the applicant can demonstrate original scientific production at an
international level as well as documented teaching qualifications. Appointment
to the position requires that both research and teaching qualifications are at
the requested level. The two qualifications will be given equal and principal
priority in the overall assessment.
The application must contain the following:
A motivated text wherein the reasons for applying, qualifications in
relation to the position, and intentions and visions for the position are
A current curriculum vitae
Copies of relevant diplomas (Master of Science and PhD). On request you
could be asked for an official English translation
Scientific qualifications. A complete list of publications must be
attached with an indication of the works the applicant wishes to be
considered. You may attach up to 10 publications
Teaching qualifications described in the teaching portfolio. If this is
not enclosed the applicant must include an explanation for its absence
Dissemination qualifications, including participation on committees or
boards, participation in organisations and the like
Additional qualifications in relation to the position.
The applications are only to be submitted online by using the "Apply online"
