PhD @ SUTD Singapore



Two fully-funded PhD positions are available at the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD). Candidates with research interest in Mechanical Engineering, Robotics and Mechatronics are encouraged to apply. We are seeking highly motivated candidates with a Master or Bachelor degree in Engineering, Physics or Mathematics. We are interested in students with critical reasoning and strong background in fundamental disciplines. Familiarity with system dynamics and optimal control as well as hands on experience with design and control of mechatronic systems is a plus.



These PhDs will be conducted at the Engineering and Product Development (EPD) pillar under the supervision of Assistant Professor David Braun (http://epd.sutd.edu.sg/faculty/david-braun). They will be funded by the SUTD President's Graduate Fellowship (http://www.sutd.edu.sg/phd_scholarships.aspx). Successful candidates will have considerable freedom of research in conjunction with attentive guidance by the supervisor.
