Middle East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus, promotes diversity in its hiring, promotion, and development of its personnel and does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, color, national origin, religion, marital status or disability.

Thank  you for your interest in Post-Doctoral  Positions at the
  Middle  East Technical University, Northern Cyprus Campus

Applications are currently being requested  in the following fields and areas:

  1. Computer Engineering / Computer  Sciences, "Investigation of Analysis and Processing Techniques of Sensor Data for Activity Recognition", prior knowledge and experience in new machine learning trends (such as deep learning), and data science is advantageous. 
    For more  information, you can contact:
    Dr. Yeliz Yesilada, Associate Professor, Computer Engineering Department,
    Dr. Enver Ever, Associate Professor, Computer Engineering Department,

  2. Computer Engineering / Computer  Sciences, "Agent-Based Simulation - Coherence-Driven Cognitive Agent", prior knowledge and experience in Cognitive Science, Agent-Based Simulation, Social Simulation, Artificial Intelligence, specifically intelligent agents field, and/or Multi Agent Systems is advantageous. In social simulations, including the user social behavioral modeling, the cognitive abilities are the most important properties that an intelligent and social agent must own. Unfortunately, the state-of-the-art autonomous agent architectures (e.g., rule-based systems, utility-based and goal-based agents, etc.) generally are lack of the cognitive abilities. We believe that an agent with these capabilities will significantly improve the user behavioral modeling and social testing.

  8. Physics / Comprehensive numerical and analytical approaches to analysis of light transport within tissues in the field of noninvasive optical imaging are expected to improve our understanding of the dynamics of cell formation in multicellular tissues. Such approaches can reveal distinctive features of light transport and enable us to identify abnormal or damaged cells having different shapes and sizes due to a variety of diseases. In particular, hybrid imaging technologies combining optical and/or optoacoustic modalities can provide significant insights into structural and mechanical processes in tissues. This project involves development of new numerical and analytical models to describe physical interactions that form the basis of these modalities. The results will pave the way for advancement of the diagnostic potential of hybrid imaging technologies as well as lab-on-a-chip devices that employ similar modalities.
    Applicants with a PhD in physics, biomedical engineering, electrical engineering, or a related field will be considered. Prior knowledge in optics and light-tissue interaction is a must.
