Professor in Experimental Systems Biology or Synthetic Biology

Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in Experimental Systems Biology or
Synthetic Biology


ETH Zurich invites applications for two positions in Systems Biology or
Synthetic Biology at the Department of Biosystems Science and
Engineering in Basel (www.dbsse.ethz.ch). Research areas of interest
include, but are not limited to, quantitative analyses of cell signaling
pathways to predict the intracellular physiological and structural
consequences, analyses of gene networks involved in distinct cellular
functions and communication between cells, design and application of
novel theory-based synthetic approaches to perturb biological systems in
order to uncover basic network principles or to produce new cellular
functions or components.


D-BSSE of ETH Zurich is located in Basel, the heart of the BioValley
providing excellent opportunities for collaboration within this strong
life science research community at the academic, clinical, and
pharmaceutical industry level. SystemsX.ch (www.systemsx.ch), the Swiss
initiative in systems biology, offers a dynamic and interactive research


The educational goal of D-BSSE is interdisciplinary science and
engineering. He or she will contribute to the ongoing study programs of
the department including the curriculum in biotechnology, as well as be
involved in establishing new master programs in systems and synthetic
biology. Teaching responsibilities include courses in quantitative cell
biology, analytical systems biology, and principles of synthetic
biology. He or she will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses
(German or English) and graduate level courses (English).


The positions can be filled either at full professor, associate or
assistant professor level, depending on the age, scientific experience,
and record of the applicant. Assistant professorships have been
established to promote the careers of younger scientists. Their initial
appointment is for four years with the possibility of renewal for an
additional two-year period and promotion to a permanent position.


Please submit your application together with curriculum vitae, a list of
publications, and a statement on future teaching and research activities
to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Ralph Eichler, Raemistrasse
101, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland, no later than August 31, 2008. With a
view toward increasing the number of female professors, ETH Zurich
