InnoChain PhD vacancies at The Bartlett

24 February 2015


Three fully-funded PhD fellowships in design communication, simulation and robotics are available at The Bartlett School of Architecture as part of InnoChain, an innovation European Training Network funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme.

InnoChain (Building Innovation in the Extended Digital Chain) is a four-year international research network for highly motivated doctoral researchers, in which state-of-the-art research is combined with a comprehensive training and an industrial secondment programme.

Details about the Bartlett InnoChain PhD fellowships are summarised below. The deadline for all applications is 11.59pm on Thursday 7 May 2015.

Alternate Means to Communicate Measure Lead (ESR 5) examines how complex design solutions with multiple criteria can be managed and communicated with non-expert stake holders across the design chain.
Industry Partner: HENN GmbH (Germany)
Start date: September 2015
