PhD Studentship in Complex Supply Network Dynamics at Cranfield University in UK, 2013/14

Procter and Gamble, Cranfield University is offering PhD studentship in the area of complex supply network modeling. UK/EU and Non UK/EU are eligible for this PhD Studentship. Applicants must have good first degree in engineering, computer science, mathematics, or physics. Studentship covers tax-free bursary, tuition fees for UK/EU students. Non UK/EU students have to pay tuition fees for the duration of three years. Online application must be submitted by 30th December 2013.. Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the area of complex supply network modeling. The project aims to use network theoretic analysis to model the dynamics of automotive supply networks and allow cost and resilience optimization taking into account commercial, technical and logistics implications. Supply network research has long assumed linear models yet empirical findings suggest that these networks behave as complex networks at large-scales, and contain non-linear pathways. In this research project, analytical modeling, graph theory, multi-agent based simulation, statistical analysis, and supply chain management theory will be employed to improve the cost and resilience of non-linear supply networks.The student will be based both at Cranfield University and P&G, and will work closely with industry partners in Europe, China and in the US. The student will also work with other researchers in the Decision Engineering Centre at the Manufacturing Department on analytical aspects of the problem. Manufacturing at Cranfield University is unique in its multi-disciplinary approach that brings together expertise in the areas of design, technology and management. We link fundamental research with manufacturing to develop novel technologies and improve the science base of manufacturing research. Our world-class research facilities are near industry scale and are available for exploring novel technologies and processes. Cranfield is third in the UK for the impact of its mechanical, aeronautical and manufacturing research.. This studentship is for pursuing PhD research level at Cranfield University in UK.
The research areas of this scholarship are: The studentship is awarded in complex supply network modeling at Cranfield University in UK.
Who can apply to this scholarship? A good first degree in engineering, computer science, mathematics, or physics is required. Demonstration of programming skills and previous experience in Complex Network Analysis is desirable.
Benefits of the scholarship: The studentship covers university tuition fees (UK/EU) and provides a tax-free bursary of up to £15,000 per year, for 3 year duration.
