About the WASP AI Industrial PhD Call

WASP is offering up to 15 industrial doctoral student positions within AI in 2020. The positions are offered at the five partner universities Chalmers, KTH, Linköping University, Lund University and Umeå University, as well as at the research groups at Örebro University and Uppsala University that are members of WASP AI. The projects are expected to address fundamental research problems within AI and expect to have a strong visionary and novelty nature. The call opens January 20th, 2020.

WASP industrial PhD students will be part of the WASP graduate school. The graduate school is making efforts to actively attract industrial PhD students. To make the industrial PhD studies relevant to companies, courses offered in the program are tailored to meet the future needs in industry.

About Industrial PhD studies

In our recently published Industrial PhD Report, an overall comment from the editors is the possibilities for industry to think of industrial PhD students as a strategic instrument. The main types of results for participating industry are partly concrete in the form of research results and a doctoral degree but also, as shown in recent research, participating industries improve their overall innovation capability.
