Hi Everyone -

I just started a new engineering faculty position at Western University in Canada -a top 1% global university. My mandate is to spin up an internationally-leading free and open source hardware lab (Free Appropriate Sustainable Technology (FAST) research group. My past work was greatly enhanced by OpenSCADs power to solve everyone's problems with a solid parametric design and I am indebted to many of you for your great work. Now I am in a position to give back a little and fund several OpenSCAD super users for higher degrees. I have several fully funded PhD lines available now/starting in the near future.

We do a lot of work on RepRap 3-D printing and want to push distributed recycling and additive manufacturing (DRAM). If you are interested please follow these directions to apply. Top students interested in a MSc will also be considered.
