PhD Scholarship in The Field of Improving Overall Equipment Efficiency in Silicon Crystal Growth Production with Digital Manufacturing Technologies

Technical University of Denmark is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a PhD position in mechanical engineering. Applications should be sent before August 04, 2019.

The Section for Manufacturing Engineering at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark, performs research based on a multi-disciplinary use of process technology, materials science, solid and fluid mechanics, and thermodynamics in the analysis, modelling and development of manufacturing processes. The research objective of the Section is to promote 'Precision Manufacturing' to meet the performance, durability, reliability, size, and cost requirements of modern products.

The Section for Manufacturing Engineering has an open position in the field of "Improving overall equipment efficiency in silicon crystal growth production with digital manufacturing technologies". Topsil GlobalWafers has a full scale production facility and all work will address real production challenges.

The PhD project is carried out in the framework of the Horizon2020 Marie-Curie Innovative Training Network DIGIMAN4.0 "DIGItal MANufacturing Technologies for Zero-defect Industry 4.0 Production". Please look at the project website ( ) before reading further. The PhD project is related to the Early Stage Researcher (ESR) position no. 3 of the DIGIMAN4.0 project. The position focuses on research in the area of precision manufacturing engineering and manufacturing digital technologies, with focus on IoT, Big Data analytics, system integration, simulation and autonomous robots. It is the goal for the current PhD project to develop in-depth root-cause analysis and detailed Pareto analysis of failure mode using big data approach to achieve intelligent predictive maintenance. The project will require the integration and development of necessary manufacturing and digital technologies enabling advancements in the process capability and optimization of pure silicon wafers industrial production.

Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.

Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their master’s degree but cannot begin before having received it.

All interested candidates irrespective of age, gender,race, disability, religion or ethnic background are encouraged to apply.
