Recent PhD graduates are encouraged to apply for the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) Postdoctoral Fellows Programme, which provides an opportunity for graduates to participate in the SMART Centre in Singapore. The awards are open to those with fewer than three years postdoctoral experience, and include an annual salary of up to S$85,000, a research grant of up to S$40,000, and a travel allowance of up to S$5,000. Fellowship recipients conduct research of their choice in Singapore within, but not necessarily tied closely to, a current project in one of the four existing SMART Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs). Applications should be submitted electronically at http://web.mit.edu/SMART/postdoc-programme/index.html and are due by by April 15, 2010. For further questions, please e-mail Jocelyn Sales at email@example.com. For more information about the IRGs and the MIT faculty participants, please view the SMART web site at http://web.mit.edu/smart.
