We always welcome enthusiastic and curious students to join our group and experience the cutting edge research activities. For NUS students, the research opportunities are available through UROPS and Final Year Project (see Physics and Chemistry department website for details). Students are encouraged to contact Prof. Eda to discuss UROPS and Honours projects.
We are delighted to host student visitors who are funded through internship and exchange programs. Internship opportunities for Indian students are available at NUS under SIPIS.
2 PhD positions are currently available. Enthusiastic, bright and self-motivated individuals who are interested in our research are encouraged to apply.
PhD candidates are expected to hold a good undergraduate or Master’s degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Electrical Engineering, or related disciplines. Details of the admission requirements by the NUS Faculty of Science can be found here. All candidates should be able to work in a team, have good oral and written communication skills. Desired qualifications include experience with nano-fabrication, semiconductor physics, electronic and vibrational spectroscopy, confocal microscopy, near-field optics, low temperature magneto-transport, and opto-electronic devices (e.g. photovoltaic and light emitting devices). Most importantly, we are looking for students with passion for science and technology!
Our research aims to explore both fundamental and applied science of two-dimensional crystals such as graphene and transition metal dichalcogenide nanosheets (e.g. MoS2, NbSe2) with a view to exploiting their unique properties for advanced device and energy applications. Positions are available on projects focusing on: (i) growth/synthesis/processing; (ii) electrical charge transport; (iii) optical spectroscopy; or (iv) electronic/optoelectronic devices.
Application to the graduate program can be submitted online. Please refer to the following links for details:Application information
You may apply to either Physics or Chemistry Department depending on your preferred project. Please refer to the department website for details:Physics Department
Please note that NUS offers August and January admission. Application deadlines are in November and May, respectively.
Candidates who meet the above eligibility criteria should send their CV, Statement of Purpose, name and contact information of three references to Prof. Eda. This can be done either before or after the candidate submits his/her application to the graduate program at NUS.
PhD students admitted into the program are automatically awarded a scholarship that covers tuition fees and living expenses for 4 years. Students are typically admitted to NUS through the NUS Research Scholarship.
Other prestigious scholarships with various benefits are also available as listed below:Singapore International Graduate Student Award (SINGA)
For the available projects, please visit NUS Centre for Advanced 2D Materials webpage where applications can be submitted online. Candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Eda to discuss the details of the projects. Candidates may also apply to prestigious Lee Kuan Yew postdoctoral fellowships.
