A list of potential PhD scholarship in ACTA lab is given below:
1. EDB-Industrial Postgraduate Program (IPP).
The IPP is doctoral program, which leads to Ph.D. after four years of study and research.
The research will be carried out partnership with a large multinational company from the microelectronics manufacturing sector. The successful candidate will be employed by this company and complete his/her PhD during the employment. A salary will be paid to the candidate from the company and the EDB-IPP program will also provide a grant.
Candidates for the program will have a  good undergraduate degree in either physics, chemistry, materials Science, electronic engineering, photonics, or applied mathematics. The candidate should also be a Singaporean citizen or permanent resident. See here for more information.
