Two fully-funded Ph.D. positions are available at the Bioinspired & Integrative Science Lab, Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Candidates with research interests in Materials Sciences, Machine Learning, and Biotechnology are encouraged to apply. We seek highly motivated candidates with a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree in Physics, Chemistry, or Biology (or related Engineering fields). We are interested in students with a strong background in fundamental disciplines.

Candidates will be part of a young and vibrant environment and are expected to cooperate in a multidisciplinary team to conduct cutting-edge research. At the Bioinspired & Integrative Science Lab, you will have the opportunity to develop as a scientist and produce science at the highest level while tackling critical global problems. Our lab understands science and technology as tools to build a better world, being our research’s societal impact the primary driver of our work. For example, in the last year alone, we have developed the first generalizable route to circular manufacturing in cities (by linking additive manufacturing with waste management). Produced chips to understand and predict breast cancer development. We have developed materials and production models for extraplanetary colonization. And "forced" a population of stem cells to become beating heart cells using a 3D printer. As the forefront lab of several emerging fields, all of our past PhD’s have secured postdoctoral positions in top Singaporean, European and American universities or the private sector.

For a general overview and history of our research, please refer to our opinion article: "The biomaterial age" The Ph.D. Program at SUTD offers attractive tax-free scholarships and additional funding for annual conference travel. Candidates with outstanding academic credentials will be generously funded by the SUTD President’s Graduate fellowship
