Rolls-royce Sponsored PhD Scholarship Mechatronics System for Hybrid Manufacturing Processing

The University of Nottingham has an opening PhD position in computer science. Applicants should apply before February 13, 2019.

Applicants are invited to undertake a 3 year PhD program in partnership with industry to address key challenges in on-platform manufacturing engineering. The successful candidate will be based at The Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Manufacturing and On-Wing Technology at University of Nottingham.

We are seeking applicants to start on a Rolls-Royce project before October 2019.

At the Rolls-Royce UTC, we are developing the next generation of robots and its sensing solutions to perform tasks in challenging working environments (https://www. rolls-royce. com/media/press-releases/2018/17-07-2018-rr-demonstrates-the-future-%20of-engine-maintenance-with-robots. aspx ).

Smart sensing systems to support automated manufacturing and maintenance, repair & overhaul. We refer here not only to conventional sensing, e.g. vision, orientation, that are commonly integrated on the end-effectors, but on advanced (e.g. tactile, sound-based, shape) solutions that enhance the perception of the end-effectors so that versatile tasks can be performed.

First or upper second class degree in Robotics/Mechanical/Cybernetics/Mechatronics /Computer Science or related scientific discipline.

Ability to implement control and kinematics with hardware-in-the-loop

- Experience of working within industry will be an advantage

- The ability to produce high quality presentations and written reports

This is an excellent opportunity to work on a novel mechatronics system with strong links to industrial applications and key skills and knowledge in preparation for a high-impact, high-technology research or industrial career.

The scholarship on offer (to eligible students) comprises a tax-free stipend of 16,777 a year; tuition fees paid and a generous study package.

Eligibility: Only UK Higher Education "Home Fee" status applicants and EU residents satisfying the three-year residency requirement are eligible.

Informal enquiries may be address to Prof Dragos Axinte (Dragos.Axinte@nottingham.ac.uk) or Cecilia Flores (Cecilia.Flores@nottingham.ac.uk).

When applying for this studentship, please include the reference number (beginning ENG and supervisors name) within the personal statement section of the application. This will help in ensuring your application is sent directly to the academic advertising the studentship.
