PhD Studentship for 'natural Parameters Digital Material Design'

University of Cambridge, UK has an opening PhD position. Applications should be sent before January 03, 2019.

Applications are invited for an AHRC CDA doctoral studentship offered by the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership. The successful applicant will work under the supervision of Dr Michael H. Ramage ( on a collaborative project co-led by the Department of Architecture and PLP/Architecture.

This studentship examines the two most widely used natural materials: wood and clay, to understand, enhance and articulate their emerging behaviour in the digital era. Through comparison and understanding between materials and processes, we propose to research and design elements which will be cut digitally or fabricated through 3d printers and can be easily assembled on site. We intend to develop parametric designs taking into account material, form and structure for later fabrication and construction.

A summary of the project can be found here:

Funding: Full DTP studentships, for candidates who meet the AHRC residency requirements, will provide an annual maintenance grant to cover living costs (14,777 pa at current rates) and will fully cover university tuition fees.

Fees-only studentships are available for applicants ordinarily resident in an EU country other than the UK, but applicants can also apply for maintenance grant funding from other sources. For more details, see:
