Centre for Process Excellence and Innovation

PhD Studentships

Thanks to a generous donation, CPEI is pleased to offer fully-funded PhD studentships to develop its research agenda. We are seeking enthusiastic and highly-motivated candidates that are keen to join the CPEI team and push the boundaries of knowledge forward in any of the research areas.

The research at CPEI is interdisciplinary in nature, so we are open to candidates of all related backgrounds, including business/management, engineering, science and economics. The normal entry route into the PhD programme at CPEI is through Cambridge Judge Business School's MPhil in Innovation, Strategy & Organisation programme.

The research tends to focus on empirical work, rather than purely analytical or conceptual work, and to this effect the Centre has developed strong collaborative relationships with a range industry partners.

If you are interested in applying for a PhD studentship in any of these areas, please:

  1. Check that you fulfil the entry requirements of Cambridge's Judge Business School's PhD programme. Visit the School's PhD webpages to find out more »
  2. Email Dr Matthias Holweg, submitting your CV and a short research proposal outlining the topic in which you are interested in working

CPEI also accepts visiting PhD students who are in their final years, where there is a strong overlap with CPEI's ongoing research activities. Please note that it is not possible to accept visiting students at Master's level.
