Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Neurogenetics
The Department of Biology (www.biol.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for an Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) in the area of Neurogenetics.
The candidate is expected to build a strong and independent research program in neurobiology aimed at studying the relationship between the genome and complex traits such as behaviour, and the underlying biological mechanisms, both in health and disease. An orientation towards the field of neuroepigenetics at an organism level will be highly considered. A solid background in genetics/epigenetics, molecular biology, physiology, behavioral and cognitive neuroscience, and in the design and use of animal and cellular models is highly desired. The successful applicant is expected to employ molecular methods including genetic engineering in rodents, virus-mediated gene manipulations, and RNA interference, in combination with behavioral, electrophysiological, biochemical, and/or proteomics approaches to modulate molecular pathways and examine the impact in vivo and in vitro. A tight integration into the major strategic research areas of the Department of Biology, including Movement Sciences and Energy Homeostasis, Metabolism and Aging, and Tissue Remodelling, Inflammation and Repair is foreseen.
The future Assistant Professor will be a member of the Department of Biology at ETH Zurich. Together with Life Science Zurich, the Department of Biology offers outstanding scientific opportunities to contribute to interdisciplinary research programs and establish close interactions with the local community through the Center for Neuroscience Zürich, the National Center for Competence in Research "Neural Plasticity and Repair", Sys¬temsX.ch, and the Functional Genomics Center Zurich. An involvement in the Biology and Neuroscience teaching program is expected. She or he will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level courses (English).
Assistant professorships have been established to promote the career of young and talented scientists. The initial appointment is for four years with the possibility of renewal for an additional two-year and promotion to a permanent position.
Please submit your application including a curriculum vitae, list of publications and detailed research plan to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Ralph Eichler, ETH Zurich, Raemistrasse 101, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland, no later than January 31, 2010. With a view towards increasing the proportion of women in the faculty, ETH Zurich specifically encourages women to apply.
