We are also offering the NUS Presidential Young Professorship (NUS PYP) Scheme to successful outstanding applicants. The NUS PYP scheme provides an excellent startup package, which consists of the following key elements:


Each NUS PYP will receive a five-year start-up grant (up to SGD 1.0 million for experimentalists; up to SGD 500,000 for non-experimentalists) to be used to support or supplement other research grants that the NUS PYP may have from his/her independent research programme at NUS.


In addition, each NUS PYP will be awarded a white space fund of SGD 250,000 to be spread over five years. This fund can be used for any legitimate purpose at the discretion of the NUS PYP, e.g. expenses to support the NUS PYP’s academic (i.e. teaching and research) activities, academic travels for the NUS PYP and his/her research team, membership fees for professional societies, hiring Teaching Assistants, research manpower, academic visitors, and other expenses approved by the Head of Department.


Two PhD students with scholarship will be assigned to a new assistant professor, including the NUS PYP.  Most PhD students are supported by a four-year PhD scholarship from the Ministry of Education.
