PhD position in Rogue Wave Science : Dublin, Ireland

The research project MULTIWAVE ( is a multidisciplinary project funded by the European Research Council from 2012-2016 to investigate the physics of rogue waves in hydrodynamics and optics. By studying the physical similarities between extreme dynamics in these two systems, the aim is to generate new insight into the generation mechanisms of the infamous and destructive oceanic rogue waves. MULTIWAVE is a collaborative project between two partners: University College Dublin in Ireland and the CNRS Institute FEMTO-ST in Besançon, France.

There is still one opportunity within MULTIWAVE for a PhD position, working mainly in Ireland in Dublin on oceanic systems, but with the possibility of course to develop skills and expertise in both fields of study through research visits and regular collaborative meetings. There is considerable flexibility with regard to the research topics of MULTIWAVE, and subjects can be tailored to particular interests of applicants. Dublin is a beautiful town with rich history and excellent quality of life.

Motivated candidates with appropriate expertise, especially in computational fluid dynamics, are now invited to submit a full CV and cover letter to:

Professor Frederic Dias

Closing date for applications: 08 March 2013
