Job Alert: Digital Twin Engineering in Ocean Industries, Chair Tier 1

The Department of Industrial Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, invites applications for a Tier 1 NSERC Canada Research Chair (CRC) in “Digital Twin Engineering for Ocean Industries”. The Canada Research Chair Program was established by the Government of Canada with the purpose of attracting outstanding researchers to the Canadian university system. Tier 1 Chairs, tenable for seven years and renewable once, are for outstanding researchers acknowledged by their peers as world leaders in their fields. More information on the CRC Program and eligibility can be found at .
About The Opportunity

Dalhousie University is a world leader in ocean research, complementing a thriving ocean industry sector and research facilities in the region, including COVE, the PIER, and Ocean Supercluster. In particular, the Ocean Frontier Institute ( OFI ), established in 2015 and headquartered at Dalhousie University, is a global leader for innovative ocean research. OFI was recently awarded a $155M+ award from the Canada Research Excellence Fund, for Transforming Climate Action ( TCA ), a major investigation into climate change and the ocean, with a focus on mitigation and adaptation solutions.
The Chair will perform cutting-edge research to develop advanced Decision Support Systems ( DSS ) to support sustainable human uses of ocean spaces. This will require new conceptual and technical research, advancing the state of the art in Digital Twin Engineering by applying operations research, systems engineering and simulation to offshore technologies, including those which help mitigate climate change such as offshore wind farms. Applying and advancing techniques such as Deep Learning ( ANN ), Reinforcement Learning (RL), and Deep Reinforcement Learning (ANN+RL) would be beneficial. Based on ocean sensor networks’ inputs, the developed DSSs will support the monitoring, prediction, environmental impacts and technical engineering management of ocean industry designs and operations (ex. offshore wind, aquaculture, tidal energy, etc.). The Chair is expected to provide a scientifically groundbreaking, practice-oriented, and fruitful research program, in collaboration with TCA projects, and related industry and government initiatives.

Application is open until Mar 15, 2024:
