MSc. or PhD. Position in Computational Science

Modeling and simulation are an indispensable part of today’s modern engineering practice. At Özyeğin University in Istanbul we develop state of the art modeling software for the design, analysis and improvement of the complex processes in real engineering applications. The core research topics are modeling of single and multi-phase flows, combined mode heat transfer (conduction, convection and radiation) and combustion. Selection and design of numerical methods and algorithms for the many-core hardware architectures and implementation of them with the use of appropriate programming models is also at the center of the conducted research.

Özyeğin University is a young, research oriented university with highly motivated and experienced academic staff graduated from reputable universities around the world. We invite outstanding candidates with B.Sc. or M.Sc. degree in engineering, physics or mathematics to apply for a computational science oriented graduate program in mechanical engineering department.

The successful candidate should have

  • strong background in numerical methods to solve for ordinary and partial differential equations
  • solid experience in programming with C, C++ or Fortran
  • code development experience in modeling preferably in flow, thermal or combustion. (Mandatory only for M.Sc graduates)

Experience in open source flow and thermal modeling software such as Openfoam is beneficial. Parallel programming experience especially in many core hardware architectures using Cuda, OpenAcc or similar is highly desirable but not mandatory. Proficiency in both written and verbal English is an absolute necessity for the program.

The expenses regarding the tuition fee, accommodation will be covered by the university and an additional monthly stipend of 750 Turkish Liras (TL) will be paid in return for assisting the teaching activities at the university. Apart from that students (M.Sc. or Phd. level) are strongly expected to contribute to the ongoing research activities and present their research work in regular internal meetings and as well as in international conferences. In this regard depending on the research performance students will also be supported from industry projects after completing their first semester or earlier on. Research related funding is 2200 TL for M.Sc. students and 2500 TL for doctoral students.

Qualified B.Sc. and M.Sc. students can submit their applications by email. Your application should include a cover letter stating your motivation for the program and explaining your experience in programming in detail. Also express prior work done in mathematical modeling if any. Please state your proficiency in programming languages and operating systems in your CV. List of all the required documents are given below.

Required Documents

  • Cover Letter
  • CV
  • Copy of the Transcripts
  • Proof of English Proficiency (TOEFL or similar)
  • Letter of recommendation will only be asked for short-listed candidates
