SMURF: Singapore-MIT Undergraduate Research Fellowship

We are accepting applications for Singapore-MIT Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SMURF) to carry out research in Singapore. This enables undergraduates from MIT, NTU and NUS to participate in a MIT-SMART faculty member’s Singapore research project and interact with students and faculty from diverse backgrounds. Each undergraduate will have a MIT-SMART researcher as a mentor/supervisor and conduct research within the faculty member’s research project. The SMURF will have access and use of the faculty’s laboratory and equipment.

Research at the SMART Centre is organised into Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs):

Eligibility: MIT, NTU, and NUS undergraduates in good standing who have already, or would have successfully completed their first year are eligible to apply.

Period of Research Attachment: The period of attachment is from June 1 through July 29, 2016. Orientation will be held on June 1, 2016.

Application: The online form will be made available on November 23, 2015.

The application period is from November 23, 2015 to January 22, 2016. Successful applicants will be notified by email by February 15, 2016, Singapore time.
