NUS & IIT Graphene Exchange Students Award

The Centre for Advanced 2D Materials (CA2DM) and Graphene Research Centre (GRC) at the National University of Singapore and the Graphene Labs at Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (G@IIT) in Genoa (Italy) are jointly opening the 

NUS & IIT Graphene Exchange Students Award

to identify PhD students who will be trained and perform research between Singapore and Genoa (Italy) on the application of graphene and 2D materials in the fields of energy, new materials and diagnostics.

PhD students at NUS working in the field of graphene and 2D materials are particularly invited to apply.

To be eligible, full-time NUS PhD students must have completed, at least, two academic years at NUS, in Singapore, before the beginning of the exchange period.

This award contemplates an exchange period ranging from one to two consecutive years at IIT in Genoa to complement and further strengthen their research work. The awarded students will focus their activities in one of the following research topics:

  • Graphene for Li-based batteries
  • Ultrafast optics in 2d crystals
  • Graphene for advanced imaging

This exchange programme/award offers:

  • the opportunity to enrich your PhD programme with cross-disciplinary research in an international and multidisciplinary scientific environment;
  • supervision and mentorship by teams of internationally renowned experts;
  • state-of-the-art research facilities;
  • a scholarship in line with international standards for the duration of the exchange period;
  • reimbursement of NUS tuition fees for the duration of the exchange period.

Applications must be submitted online at this CA2DM webpage (instructions and required supporting documents are described there).

Deadline for applications is 28 August 2015.

Details of the research topics can be seen in the attached pdf file, below.
