A fresh PhD holder from a recognised university could expect an annual base salary of SGD48,000 per annum, or SGD4,000 per month, if appointed as a Research Fellow at one of the universities or A*STAR institutes. A candidate who has published journal papers and/or won international research awards will stand a better chance of being employed.
The private sector normally offers a higher remuneration.
