An exciting opportunity exists for academically excellent candidates to join a multi-disciplinary team working on the critical engineering challenges facing the next generation of floating offshore oil and gas projects. The project involves industry partners Shell, Woodside, Bureau Veritas and Lloyds Register. Each partner organisation is committed to help shape the research directions, drive the technology transfer and assist with the mentorship of the researchers and students. This ARC Research Hub for Floating Facilities involves five interlinked projects in the areas of ocean forecasting, riser and mooring longevity, vessel motion and offloading, and novel anchoring and subsea foundations. An opportunity exists for four PhD students to work on the novel anchoring project.
The successful applicants should have a first-class honours degree or equivalent in civil engineering or interest in offshore geotechnical engineering.
The scholarship value is $35500.
