===============================
PhD IN PLANT-WIDE FAULT DIAGNOSIS EXPLOITING PROCESS CONNECTIVITY 
INFORMATION.

A PhD studentship of three years duration sponsored by a blue-chip 
industrial company is available starting as soon as possible after 1st 
October 2007. The studentship offers a stipend of 14,600 UK pounds p.a. 
plus tuition fees (home or international). The stipend increases each year 
with inflation. The studentship is in the Centre for Process Systems 
Engineering (CPSE) within the Department of Chemical Engineering at 
Imperial College London. The academic project supervisor is Professor Nina 
F. Thornhill.

The aim of the project is to conduct research and establish new ways to 
capture and manipulate information from the schematic of a chemical process 
or refinery (a diagram showing the layout of the plant) in order to give an 
automated means of diagnosing operating problems. The practical outcome 
will be improved fault diagnosis using measurements, information from the 
process schematic and process understanding (know-how). 

The student will have an opportunity of a placement with the sponsoring 
company to conduct trials of his or her research ideas.

Closing Date:  25 September 2007.
