The AMN is seeking passionate candidates looking for PhD studies in the realm of Creativity and Design with Additive Manufacturing.

The James Dyson Foundation is offering a PhD bursary for a student whose research is in the fields of engineering and product design with a particular focus on creative approaches to engineering. The award of £25,000 per year for three years will cover course fees, living costs and research costs/consumables. Applicants are expected to demonstrate creativity and a passion for engineering design and to have an excellent academic track record. Candidates from all fields of engineering are eligible to apply.

The selection process will involve an initial shortlisting by a panel of the Faculty of Engineering Research Committee, followed by an interview of the shortlisted candidates. The final decision will be made by the College in consultation with the James Dyson Foundation based on the recommendation of the panel.

The selection criteria are as follows:
