BIGHEART PhD Scholarships

The BIGHEART Scholarship Programme aims to attract highly talented students with a passion for interdisciplinary research, addressing the technical barriers preventing distributed healthcare solutions. We welcome candidates with a medical background who will be provided with an opportunity to work with engineers and scientists in our highly collaborative environment. We also seek candidates with an engineering or scientific (physics, chemistry, biological, or computer sciences) background who are keen to work together with clinicians. The collaborative teamwork will tackle complex fundamental scientific questions with the aim of developing innovative health technologies.

New students will be admitted in August each year.
Interested candidates should contact the BIGHEART Faculty and Principal Investigators.
Candidates must follow NUS Graduate Admission Guidelines for requirements.

Application is via NUS Faculties with decision making at BIGHEART.
