FYP students are allowed to get acquainted with our lab activities in the months of June/July before officially starting their FYPs in semester 1. We also welcome interested undergrads in their 1st, 2nd or 3rd year to join our projects. Each undegrad will be assigned to a postdoc or graduate student mentor who will guide them on planning experimental research and new laboratory skills. They will also be trained on reading scientific literature, presentation and report writing skills. Motivated undegrads who contributed meaningfully to our research will gain recognition through co-authorship in publication. Interested students should contact Prof. Dang via email (ttdang@ntu.edu.sg, "Undergraduate internship application - applicant name" in the email subject line) with a PDF file of your CV/resume and a copy of your unofficial grade report/degree audit.
