Job Title: Fully Funded PhD Position in Failure Modeling of Composites with SPH

Institution: Sabancı University, Istanbul, Turkey

About Us: We are a dynamic research group led by Prof. Dr. Mehmet Yıldız, dedicated to pioneering research in a wide spectrum of areas in materials science, mechanical engineering and ocean engineering. Our group focuses on the development of particle-based numerical tools such as Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) and Peridynamics, in wide ranges of complex topics including free surface flow, multi-phase flow, non-Newtonian flows, electrohydrodynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, solid mechanics with damage modeling, fluid-structure interaction, and also extends into exciting novel areas like active matters.

Position Description:

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented PhD researcher to join our research team in the field of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). The successful candidate will work on cutting-edge research projects related to Failure Modeling of Composites with SPH method.


  • Conduct in-depth research on SPH methodologies and their applications.

  • Develop and implement SPH-based numerical simulations.

  • Collaborate with other team members and contribute to interdisciplinary projects.

  • Publish research findings in peer-reviewed journals and present at conferences.


  • A Master's degree or equivalent in a relevant field (e.g., mechanical engineering, materials engineering, applied mathematics etc.).

  • Strong background in solid mechanics or numerical simulations.

  • Proficiency in at least one of the programming languages commonly used in structural mechanics simulations (C++, Fortran, CUDA, OpenCL, OpenMP/MPI, Python).

  • Excellent problem-solving skills and a passion for scientific research.

  • Effective written and oral communication skills in English.

What We Offer:

  • A stimulating and collaborative research environment.

  • Access to state-of-the-art computational and experimental resources of the Integrated Manufacturing Technologies Research and Application Center (SU-IMC) of Sabancı University.

  • Opportunities for professional development, including attending conferences and workshops.

  • The PhD position in Sabancı University will be fully funded; this will include tuition fee, campus accommodation, and the monthly stipend.

Application Process:

Interested candidates should submit the following documents as a single PDF file to the email address:, including and in email CC.

  1. A cover letter explaining their motivation for pursuing a PhD in Failure Modeling of Composites with SPH and their research interests.

  2. A detailed CV, including academic qualifications, research experience, and publications (if any).

  3. Contact information for at least two academic or professional references.

Important Dates:

  • Application Deadline: 24 May 2024

  • Shortlisted candidates will be contacted for interviews.

Additional Information:

Sabancı University is committed to promoting diversity and equal opportunity in education and employment. We welcome applications from candidates of all backgrounds and experiences.
