Use your in-depth expertise in ship operational performance to advise a broad array of fleet owners and contribute to our mission for cleaner, smarter and safer shipping.

What are you going to do?
As a project manager and knowledge expert in the Performance at Sea (PaS) department, you will use your theoretical knowledge and practical experience at sea to advise our customers on how to improve the operational performance on board ships. At PaS, we ensure that ships, structures and crews can operate cleanly, smartly and safely in their daily practice. To this end we measure, troubleshoot develop algorithms and systems and train crews onboard in their usage. You will be the first point of contact for our clients. The role involves drawing-up project proposals for our clients to reduce fuel consumption and maximise the operational range, manage power, propulsion and energy systems and secure the cargo on board. Other tasks involve initiating international cooperation projects to tackle overarching performance issues on board. With different teams you will manage projects, both from our office and onboard of our customers’ ships. As a senior expert your role will be to guide people within MARIN and work with fleet performance analysists of ship-owners, developing knowledge and tools to improve the performance through operational data and to introduce onboard advice solutions.

Who are we looking for?
An energizing candidate with a Master degree in Naval Architecture or Marine Engineering. You have in-depth knowledge of operations on board and at least five years of experience as fleet performance manager/analyst or similar. We are looking for a team player with an entrepreneurial spirit and a good understanding of modern IT technology. You should also have a good command of the English language and be willing to learn Dutch if this is not your native language. Travel will be part of the job.

Who are we and what do we offer?
MARIN is an independent and globally recognised institute in hydrodynamic and nautical research. Our mission is to make shipping cleaner, smarter and safer, and to contribute to the sustainable use of ports, waterways and the sea. As a member of our team of 400 specialists, you will work in a stimulating environment which will allow you to develop while maintaining the freedom to choose your own path. You will work with customers in different areas of shipping.
