Do you want to be a pioneer in building the future's cutting equipment? We offer a unique opportunity to conduct an industrial PhD student education at Husqvarna Group in cooperation with Linköping University.

About the assignment
In this position, you will translate the latest research into future Husqvarna products. The challenge of the research project is to understand every detail of the wear mechanisms in order to develop new hard coatings that can improve the wear resistance of the cutting equipment.
