Wave energy post doc - Oscilla Power (Seattle, WA)
Oscilla Power, a renewable energy technology company based in Seattle, WA, seeks a research scientist/engineer to assist in modeling and design of a novel wave energy generation system.  Candidates must be self-starters who are comfortable working with a small team of dedicated engineers to rapidly advance technology and accelerate product commercialization.  The work will be focused on hydrodynamic modeling and design of large scale wave energy converters. Candidate must have demonstrated experience in time-domain hydrodynamic modeling/analysis using tools such as Orcaflex, Proteus DS, WECSim, or their equivalents, and possess a strong understanding of the principles of fluid mechanics/hydrodynamics. Additional experience with code such as WAMIT, NEMOH or similar is highly beneficial, but not essential.
Prior work experience is desirable and preferred, but is not required for candidates with highly relevant academic experience.  The successful candidate must be able to provide strong references from people who can vouch for his or her ability to succeed in a technical role.
Desired skills/experience:
Have not received a prior postdoctoral fellowship in a corporate laboratory for a term of more than six
Ph.D. in Ocean or Marine Engineering.
Must be a fast learner capable of picking up and applying new skills.
Strong basic knowledge of general engineering, physics, and fluid mechanics.
Prior experience with laboratory or project work is highly desirable.
Prior experience in using physical model test data to perform validation and calibration of numerical models is highly desirable.
Familiarity with standard programming languages is highly desirable.
Excellent interpersonal and communication (both written and verbal) skills
Have the ability to contribute individually, especially in the area of hydrodynamic modeling, but also have interest and aptitude to work as part of a team to achieve specific goals
The position will be initially funded through a pre-approved ASEE post-doctoral fellowship, but will transition into a regular staff position after the fellowship term has ended. The ASEE fellowship requires that candidates:
Possess a Ph.D. earned within the past seven years
Be a US citizen, national, or legal permanent resident months.
Please send a cover letter describing your fit for this position and your career goals along with your resume to employment@oscillapower.com
