Quantum information and complexity theory are exciting, fast-paced fields – with many important questions that are left to be answered. We are interested in students that have a passion to to tackle these big questions, and have a love to discuss deep conceptual ideas. Have you ever lay awake at night wondering?
- Why is quantum mechanics reversible but the second law of thermodynamics is not?
- How does life get spontaneously more ordered when entropy always increases with time?
- How is it that everything we observe is classical, but the universe itself is quantum?
Then we are interested in hearing from you. Students will be officially enrolled at the School for Physical and Mathematical Sciences at Nanyang Technological University (NTU), and will also spend significant time working both at the Complexity Institute at NTU and the Centre for Quantum Technologies at NUS.
QuSCI is interested in sufficiently talented students of all nationalities. Specifically potential students should have
- A 1st class honours or equivalent in Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science or equivalent.
- Prior knowledge of quantum information, information theory, or complexity science.
- Good oral and written English communication skills (Very competitive TOEFL and GRE scores are required for students where English is a second language)
We have internal scholarships available and will also support exceptional candidates. Candidates are also invited to apply for the following international scholarships:
- SINGA Scholarshop (All nationalities)
- Nanyang President’s Scholarship (All nationalities)
- NTU Research Scholarship (All Nationalities)
- Lee Kuan Yew Scholarship (Singaporean Only)
Other scholarship opportunities are available at the graduate scholarship page at Nanyang Technological University. Please do contact Mile Gu (gumile at ntu.edu.sg) about possible projects before application.
