The Singapore National Research Foundation (NRF) Fellowship Scheme is a globally competitive programme to attract, recruit and root young scientists and researchers to conduct independent research in Singapore. Currently the Graphene Research Centre hosts 5 NRF fellows.
Singapore NRF Fellows will be given complete independence and freedom to pursue their own research directions. They will also be free to choose the host organization which will give them the best environment, in terms of access to relevant equipment and facilities and in building up the team for their research.
Each Fellow will be provided with a research grant of up to S$3 million over five years, to support projects that exhibit high likelihood of a research breakthrough. This grant excludes the salary of the NRF Fellow, and will adequately support a research team comprising at least 1 post-doctoral fellow and 2 PhD students, costs of incremental research facilities, consumables and travel for conferences and meetings.
The salary of the NRF Fellow will be covered over and above the research grant awarded, and will be pegged to that of an Assistant Professor at a local university.
The NRF fellowship is a program by the National Research Foundation. Visit the dedicated website by following the link below for details of the program, selection process and application instructions.
