Kyushu University Friendship Scholarship, Japan

Under Kyushu University Friendship Scholarships Scheme (hereafter Friendship Scholarship), Kyushu University invites students from abroad who attend prestigious universities in their home country and who will play an important role in their nation’s future.

By offering them a chance to study abroad at Kyushu University, the scheme aims to foster the nation’s future leaders, maintain good relations with Kyushu University, and play the role of point of contact to cultivate joint research and bring in external capital depending on their course or career after graduation.

Eligibility & Number of Students

1) Eligibility:

  • Students who are enrolled in non-Japanese universities.
  • Terms of Study should be more than 3 months and less than 12 months. (In case of Double Degree Program students, terms of study can be more than 12 months.)
  • Students who can be accepted by undergraduate school or graduate school of Kyushu University as a status listed in “Visa” part. (Students have to take a procedure separately to be exchange students of Kyushu University.)
  • Students who can pay the tuition fee when they come from non-Japanese universities which doesn’t have agreement of student exchange with Kyushu University.

2) Number of Students:
About 5 people. (Depends on the budget.)

Classification of Grants
Grants are as follows in principle.

1) Travel expenses
Travel expenses up to 100,000 yen, will be covered (actual costs). However, this depends on the budget of Kyushu University. The details are as follows:

  1. Round-trip economy air ticket via the most direct route between Fukuoka and the location of the recipient’s university. Air tickets and transportation fees in the recipient’s home country will not apply unless receipts and other proof of purchase are made.
  2. Incidental Expenses Only expenses incurred through visas, travel taxes, and airport taxes will be borne by Kyushu University. In the event that receipts and proof of payment are not submitted, these expenses will not be covered.

Graduate and Postdoctoral Research in Medical Engineering, School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Graduate student positions and postdoctoral research positions are available in the area of medical engineering at the School of Electrical & Electronic Engineering of Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

Students with research interests at the interface of electrical engineering and biology are especially encouraged to apply.

Topics include:

  • modeling of epileptic seizures (from abstract network models to detailed biophysical models);
  • neural implants for seizure suppression (from control/game theoretic analysis to hardware design);
  • diagnosis of brain disorders, from EEG and other brain signals (Alzheimer’s disease and epilepsy);
  • graphical models and nonparametric statistical models for analyzing electrophysiological data (e.g., spike sorting and decoding); and,
  • principled statistical models for merging different brain imaging modalities (EEG/MEG/fMRI/DTI/single-unit recordings/etc.).

The research is conducted in collaboration with partners at the RIKEN Brain Science Institute, MIT, and MGH / Harvard.

Graduate Fellowships and Postdoctoral Positions in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Singapore

Dr. Qihua Xiong won 2nd batch Singapore National Research Foundation Research Fellowship (NRF-RF) and recently joined Nanyang Technological University as a Nanyang Assistant Professor. With a strong support from both NRF and NTU, Dr. Xiong is expecting to establish a vibrant group dedicated into the research in nanoscience and nanotechnology.

Dr. Xiong finished his B.Sc. degree in Physics at Wuhan University in 1997. After obtained his M.Sc. degree in physics from Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2000, he went to United States of America to pursue his Ph.D. research. In 2006, he received his Ph.D. degree in materials science at The Pennsylvania State University under the supervision of Professor Peter Eklund. His Ph.D. research covers from fundamental physical properties especially phonon properties of semiconductor nanowires, to nanomechanical properties and twinning superlattices in nanowires. He joined Professor Charles Lieber laboratory at Harvard as a postdoctoral research fellow in 2006. During his postdoctoral training, he has extended his research to include nanoelectronics and nanoelectronic devices for single molecule biosensing.

Dr. Xiong received several awards and fellowships during his graduate and undergraduate studies, including Pan-American Advanced Studies Institute (PASI) fellowship (DOE and NSF, 2006), Graduate Award for Academic Excellence (The Pennsylvania State University, 2006), Excellent Graduate Fellowship Award (1998 and 1999, CAS), Hui Kai Fellowship Award (Wuhan University, 1996), Gui Zhiting-Xu Hailan Fellowship Award (Wuhan University, 1995) and Outstanding Student Award (Wuhan University, 1994).

Dr. Xiong’s group is seeking strongly motivated postdoctoral research fellows to carry out a multi-million dollar project (funded by Singapore National Research Foundation and Nanyang Technological University), which is on the cutting-edge research in nanomaterials, nanoelectronics, energy and nanoelectronic-bio interface for single molecule biosensing. Due to the highly interdisciplinary nature of the project, candidates with a Ph.D. degree in experimental condensed matter physics, electronic engineering, chemistry (physical or polymer), biochemistry and biophysics are all encouraged to apply. Annual salary ranges from S$ 36,000-60,000, depending on qualification. Starting date is flexible and multiple positions are available.
