EPSRC Industrial Case Studentship in accountability for services through life*
Cambridge Service Alliance
Closing date: 30 June 2014
Studentship Ref: NM01839
The Challenge Shrinking budgets, rising costs and increasing competition has led to many companies making the shift to selling services. Companies in industries as diverse as aerospace and social care are now offering "payment by results" type services, rewarded only when they meet or exceed agreed performance criteria. This has led to the new field of service science, or service systems, research.
The studentship must begin by 1 October 2014 and applications must be submitted by 30 June 2014 at the latest. However we seek to offer the studentship as soon as possible and early applications are strongly encouraged. More information about the project, the studentship and eligibility is available here.
Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Andy Neely
Applications for studentships should be made on-line via the Cambridge Graduate Admissions Office
*Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3.5 years
