For this purpose, CIMB Group seeks highly talented individuals who have attained an impressive track record of academic and personal achievements and can see themselves playing a significant role in the development of the ASEAN region.

Field of Study

Genetics
DNA is the hereditary molecule that is found in all living cells. It is the simplest building block of life that is responsible for the observable diversity across and between all species. Ever since the double helix was discovered by Watson and Crick, research into genetics has increased exponentially. The implications of genetic research have been paramount to advances in many fields such as medicine and agriculture.

If your passion lies in the following areas, we would like to support you in the quest for another breakthrough in the area of genetic research.

  • Genomics
  • Ecological Genetics / Conservation Genetics
  • Behavioural Genetics / Psychiatric Genetics
  • Genetic Engineering
  • Genetic Medicine / Clinical Genetics

Nutrition
In terms of nutritional science, studies on the responses of the human body to diet and nutrients are essential for the continued well-being of ASEAN communities. This is particularly important in combating malnutrition, obesity and other health issues. In addition, given the significance of agriculture to the region’s economy and food self-sufficiency, plant nutrition and animal nutrition in relation to livestock are also key areas of research.

If you are passionate about making a difference through the following areas of nutrition, we would like to bring you a step closer towards realising your dreams:

  • Human Nutrition
  • Animal Nutrition
  • Plant Nutrition

Selection Process
The assessment process comprises three stages as follows:

Stage 1
We screen all applicants to ensure that they meet all eligibility criteria, and will shortlist applicants based on the following pre-selection criteria:

  • Academic or career and other relevant achievements
  • Proposed postgraduate programme and whether the knowledge gained will significantly benefit the ASEAN region
  • Proposed graduate school and whether it is one of the top graduate schools in the world for the field of study
  • Applicant’s personal statement on contribution to the ASEAN region after completion of studies
