SMART Scholars Programme for Postdoctoral Research

We’ll be accepting qualified applications for the SMART 2019 Scholars Programme. These awards will offer a special opportunity for recent or soon to become PhD graduates to take part in the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) Centre in Singapore, and also to become members of an alumni network which we expect will continue to evolve and expand through time.

The awards, to be awarded annually, are open to people with less than two years postdoctoral experience and given they have received their doctoral degree by 1 August 2019. The fellowship recipient will have the ability to conduct research of their own choice in Singapore within, but not always tied closely to, a current project in one of those SMART Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) and the SMART Innovation Centre. It’s expected that the recipients will probably take up their appointments at SMART by

1 September 2019.


The awards provide a fixed annual salary of S$120,000 annually (not eligible for a 13-month bonus or yearly increment), a research grant of up to S$25,000, a travel grant of up to S$2,500, also eligible for a six-month stay at MIT with funds up to S$15,000.
