Open Positions



Academic positions at "Master" and "PhD" levels are occasionally available in the Computational Chemistry Lab at the Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry Department of the Atılım University under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Dr. Hakan Kayı.


Our projects are concerned with applying state-of-the-art computational tools to model and to simulate the chemical reactions in relevant areas of chemical engineering and chemistry. During the studies, quantum chemistry, molecular modeling and simulation techniques will be utilized.


Required Qualifications:

  1. B.Sc. degree (and/or M.Sc. degree) in a relevant discipline such as chemical engineering, physics, chemistry or mathematics.
  2. Solid English language skills. An English proficiency score is not required. But candidiates should be able to follow scientific articles clearly and be able to present their studies at the national/international conferences in English.
  3.  A keen interest in computational modeling. Experience in ab initio, density functional theory and/or semiempirical methods is absolutely an advantage, but  not a must-have. Enthusiastic candidates without experience will be considered as well.


To apply a position at our Lab, please email a copy of your resume (including your ID photo and indicating your cumulative GPA) to Asst. Prof. Dr. Hakan Kayı.
