The Institute for Manufacturing has the following vacancies:
- Supervision of undergraduate students at Cambridge Judge Business School
- Opportunities for Research Students
- EPSRC DTP Studentship - Integration of virtual or augmented reality tools with human decision-making approaches for technology strategy
Undergraduate students’ supervisions typically entail one-hour sessions with a small group of undergraduate students, who are asked to prepare a given task (for example, a question taken from a past exam) in advance. The purpose of the sessions is to support, encourage and challenge students during the course of their studies.
MST students are expected to meet a supervisor four times during the course of each module, and supervisors are expected to look after (at least) four or five groups of students at a time. In line with this, candidates to this job need to be ready to commit to (at least) 16 hours per term to hold supervisions plus preparation time. Supervisors are briefed by the relevant module leader and given access to the course materials for planning purposes, ahead of the supervision sessions. At the end of the term, the students’ colleges remunerate the supervisors for each supervision report submitted.
