Job Details

Ph.D. student in Industrial Electronics with focus on production automation and digitalization

The EISLAB division of the Department of Electrical and Space Engineering conducts research on resource-constrained embedded systems within five technology areas; sensor systems, electronics design, the Internet of Things (IoT), embedded electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electronics production.


EISLAB are involved in several large European projects on distributed system construction with a focus on IoT, System of Systems SoS and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). Collaboration with industry is conducted via research centers such as ProcessIT (process automation), CDT (telecom), and CASTT (automotive).


You will work with some of the following areas of production automation:

  • Safety in IoT- and CPS-based automation
  • Operation scheduling and state detection
  • Real-time support of local clouds
  • IoT big data processing
  • Distributed service intelligence and semantics
  • SoS engineering tools and services
  • Machine self-assessment
  • Distributed cryptographic technology


The studies will be conducted as parts of the very large European project: Productive 4.0. The project aims to significantly improve the digitization of the European industry regarding the automation of production intimately linked to supply-chain networks and product life-cycle management. The EISLAB division at LTU will be responsible for the IoT and SoS automation architecture which will be based on the Arrowhead Framework. The above areas indicate the research fields to be addressed in cooperation with about 100 European partners.

As a Ph.D. student, you work towards a Doctoral degree as the final goal and a Licentiate degree as the initial goal and for as basis for decision on the possible continuation towards the doctoral degree. The work will be done with the objectives of the Higher Education Ordinance as support. You will take courses while doing dissertation work in the form of e.g. literature, article, design studies, construction and programming tasks, theory development, analysis and presentations. Teaching and other duties at the division and / or department exists for graduate students, which is limited to a maximum of a year of the total period not exceeding five years.

The necessary background for applicants is a master degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and/or Engineering Physics and Electrical Engineering, or equivalent. The applicant must be proficient in computer science and/or digital electronics. Previous experience of working with service-oriented architectures (SOA), IoT, CPS and/or SoS is valuable but not a requirement. The applicant must also possess basic programming skills at minimum. Fluency in oral and written communication in English is a requirement.
