Job Record #18929
TitlePost-doc Research Fellow in Ice-Water-Structure Interaction
CategoryJob in Academia
EmployerHarbin Engineering University
LocationChina, Harbin
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure Date* None *
Applications are invited for a 2-year full-time post-doc position with a possibility of extension.  The researchers are focused on the 
ice-water-structure interaction through conducting mathematical analysis and developing time-domain analytical and numerical methods 
with application in naval architecture and polar engineering: hydroelasticity, ship slamming, and sloshing in ship tanks. Developing 
traditional mathematical techniques, such as boundary integral, boundary element, and finite element methods, as well as modern methods 
such as integral hodograph method, machine learning, and artificial intelligence with application in the maritime sector.

The College has excellent achievements in ice-water-structure interaction research and its rank is first among Chinese universities in 
shipbuilding engineering. The College has good experimental and numerical facilities, including an outdoor ice tank, a low-temperature 
walk-in room, and high-performance computers. The Group has a good reputation and output in this area and has published many 
influential papers in high-level journals.

The successful candidate will join our international group to enhance and continue the ongoing research on the performances of ocean 
structures operating in highly complex environmental conditions in the polar region with sea ice of different forms. 

Salary: 200,000 to 450,000 RMB per annum, depending on relevant experience. 

The applications sent until 18th February will obtain full consideration, and then until the position will be filled.

The main purpose of the job
•	Undertake research into two- and three-dimensional water-structure interaction problems through some idealized bodies using an 
analytical approach under typical ice conditions. 
•	Develop highly efficient and accurate numerical methods and computer codes, based on boundary integral, boundary element, and 
integral hodograph methods for practical marine structures in the polar region.  
•	Extend and refine the available software and combine them with the developed fully nonlinear boundary element model to perform 
simulations for complex wave and ice conditions.
•	Undertake systematic case studies for real scenarios. Compare with experimental data. Provide an in-depth understanding of the 
performance of a structure in icy water.
•	Mathematical modeling of the dynamic behavior of high-speed marine crafts in the high sea.

Key Responsibilities, Accountabilities, or Duties
•	Develop research objectives and proposals for own or joint research, with the assistance of a mentor if required. 
•	Conduct individual and collaborative research projects.
•	To develop mathematical models and innovative analytical and numerical solution procedures for the wave-ice-structure 
interaction in the icy water of polar regions. 
•	To disseminate research output timely through presentation at conferences and to industry as well as to the general public, and 
through publications in high-quality refereed journals.
•	Continually update knowledge and understanding in the field or specialism.
•	To help supervise the final year projects of undergraduates and research projects of master students.
•	Attend progress meetings as required, and network with the other research groups by participating in workshops/seminars if 
appropriate and needed.
•	Any other duties as may be deemed reasonable by the Head of the group or the Department.
•	Excellent written and oral communication skills.
•	Excellent time management and organizational skills; ability to meet deadlines.
•	Ability to work independently and as part of a team.
Desirable Knowledge, Skills, Experience and Qualifications
•	Familiarity with multiple computer operating systems.
•	Experience in the use of ABACUS, ANSYS, Mathworks, Matlab, Starccm+, etc.
