A PhD studentship is available to work in the area of digital manufacturing. Digital manufacturing involves the application of digital information for the enhancement of manufacturing processes, value chains, products and services. 

This PhD position will examine research issues of interest to both Siemens and Cambridge and might include (for example) development of low cost industrial automation solutions ("Digital Manufacturing on a Shoestring"); the application of internet of things (IoT) in an industrial context; development and use of digital models of processes and products (so called digital twins); automation systems as a service offering; and digital applications in maintenance and asset management ("Digital Manufacturing on a Shoestring"). The successful candidate will be based in Cambridge but would be expected to undertake case study work with Siemens and their industrial partners as part of the project. 

Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree (and preferably a Masters degree) in Engineering or Physical Sciences. Some understanding of computer systems applications in industry would be an advantage. 

EPSRC studentships are fully-funded (fees and maintenance) for UK students or provide fees only for EU students from outside the UK. Further details about eligibility can be found at:

Applications should be submitted via the University of Cambridge Applicant Portal, with Professor Duncan McFarlane identified as the potential supervisor.
