Interdisciplinary Graduate Programme (IGP)

The Interdisciplinary Graduate Programme (IGP) is a 4-year PhD programme in IDMxS@NTU that seeks to nurture outstanding students with a passion for interdisciplinary research across areas in Molecular Analytics, Sensor Technology, Data Sciences and Interfacial Chemistry. Research topics aim to interface the biological world with information technology and data sciences, by developing integrated systems that can monitor disease threats, population health (health promotion, preventative healthcare, early diagnosis and intervention), food safety, the environment, and potential security threats.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work closely with our dedicated researchers at IDMxS, faculty from colleges and institutes across NTU, and other collaborators from universities such as NUS. We welcome highly motivated candidates with a strong, diverse background in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to join our PhD programme.
