[DMANET] PhD scholarships at SUTD

Up to 10 scholarships are available for bright and motivated students
who want to pursue a PhD in Singapore, starting September 2015, in a
number of areas broadly related to operations research such as: supply
chain, transportation and logistics, telecommunication systems and the
Internet, energy (renewables, environment, electricity markets),
service systems, financial engineering, critical infrastructure and
security, social networks, healthcare.

Students will be attached to the Engineering Systems and Design
pillar, a multidisciplinary department in SUTD with faculty from the
best universities in the world, including MIT, Cambridge, UC Berkeley,
Caltech, and Cornell. The faculty is engaged in numerous research
projects using tools from optimization, operations management, game
theory and mechanism design, applied probability, economics, and more.
SUTD is a research-intensive university, recently established in
collaboration with MIT, and its president is Tom Magnanti, former Dean
of Engineering at MIT and former President of INFORMS. Singapore is a
prime location to engage in research with real practical impact, and
is a meeting point of different cultures, providing an enriching life
experience for students.

The ESD PhD program comprises coursework, research, teaching, and
overseas research or industry experiences, with a flexible mentoring
structure. We offer highly attractive financial packages for qualified
PhD applicants who are selected for a scholarship.
