The School of Engineering, Construction Engineering and Lighting Science

The School of Engineering is one of four schools within Jönköping University. We offer attractive technical education at undergraduate and graduate levels and conduct advanced research in several technological areas. The School of Engineering is able to award doctorates in the area of industrial product realization. We collaborate with the surrounding society to develop new technology and spread knowledge to strengthen the competitiveness of companies. Working with us, you are close to colleagues in an international environment with great opportunities to influence and develop.

As a doctoral student, we offer a fully financed full-time position. Most of the working time will be devoted to doctoral studies (80%) which includes coursework and writing a doctoral thesis. The remaining 20% is allocated for teaching and administrative tasks. We seek candidates who have a strong wish to conduct high-quality academic scholarship, and an ambition to pursue an international or national research career.

The doctoral student will work on the research project “Manufactured products’ information provision for light environments” (MAP4Light). MAP4Ligh is a research project founded by the Knowledge foundation and industrial partners involved in the project. Most of the research will be carried out at the department of Construction Engineering and Lighting Science, School of Engineering, but short periods in the partners companies might occur.

Appropriate information exchange between all parties involved in the construction and maintenance process is crucial for the correct application and integration of complex systems like luminaires and windows in a building. (Digital) information provision and exchange are among the issues that affect all parties involved in each stage of the building process, causing increased costs and time, and reducing the final product quality and sustainability. This research project will contribute to a more efficient information flow focusing on information exchange and advanced digital tools to achieve this goal. The project aims to investigate when, in the construction process, product information needs to be exchanged and who is the relevant information supplier (process modelling); what information is needed and how the information should be structured, standardized and delivered into a digitalized process (information modelling) and how, with the semantic web (SW) technologies and linked data (LD) technologies, to implement advanced digital solutions for information provision/exchange.
