Industrially Funded PhD Places
The Cambridge Service Alliance intends to make up to three industrially funded PhD places available, starting in October 2011. The awards will cover all PhD fees and include an industrial top-up to cover living expenses. Successful applicants will register for a PhD at the University of Cambridge. We are particularly interested in hearing from well-qualified candidates who are interested in studying one of three broad topics:
- Business model innovation for services – what are the new and innovative business models that we will see emerge in the 21st century? How will these business models be enabled by technology, including information and communication technology?
- Service and support engineering capability – many engineering firms now offer service and support to their products. What new organizational and technical capabilities do these firms have to develop to excel in service and support? What are the options for developing and acquiring these capabilities?
- Performance information and analytics – increasingly organisations are turning to performance information and analytics to support the delivery and management of industrial services. How can we design and deploy performance information and analytics systems that are appropriate for networked organizations?
Appointment to these studentships will be a highly competitive process so only exceptional candidates need apply. To register your interest please send a cv and covering letter explaining why you would be suitable to Professor Andy Neely, Director of the Cambridge Service Alliance, by 30th June 2011.
