    Scholarship Applications for 2011 Closed
    If you are interested in doing a PhD with me check back in June 2011 for new projects and available positions.
    June 2010
    PhD Scholarships Available for 2011 (Deadline 31/08/2010)
    A limited number of PhD scholarships are available for outstanding students with a Masters degree or a 4-year undergraduate degree in relevant fields. The scholarships pay $26,669 per year and are funded in conjunction with Microsoft. Additional funding is available for local and international research visits and conferences. Subject to performance, the student will also receive a highly sought-after internship position at Microsoft (Redmond or Beijing). This is an excellent opportunity to gain industry experience and strengthen one's CV and future job prospects. If you are from a top ranking university in your country and among the top 10% in your class, apply by sending me an email.
