About the WASP Industrial PhD Student Call

WASP is offering up to 10 industrial doctoral student positions within AI, Autonomous Systems and Software at the five partner universities Chalmers, KTH, Linköping University, Lund University and Umeå University as well as the research groups at Örebro University and Uppsala University that are members of WASP AI. The industrial partner should have research activities in Sweden.

The projects are expected to address fundamental research problems within any of WASP’s research areas and expect to have a strong visionary and novelty nature, i.e., not only application development. The call opens January 25th, 2021.

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 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.
