About SMART Scholars Programme for Postdoctoral Research


We will be accepting qualified applications for the SMART 2019 Scholars Programme. These awards will provide a unique opportunity for recent or soon to be Ph.D. graduates to participate in the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) Centre in Singapore, and to become members of an alumni network that we anticipate will continue to evolve and expand over the years.


The awards, to be given annually, are open to those with less than two years post doctoral experience and provided they have received their doctoral degree by 1 August 2019. The fellowship recipient would be able to conduct research of his/her own choice in Singapore within, but not necessarily tied closely to, a current project in one of the SMART Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) and or the SMART Innovation Centre. It is anticipated that the recipients will take up their appointments at SMART by 1 September 2019.




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