Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Biomolecular Engineering
The Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (www.bsse.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications and nominations for an outstanding candidate in the area of biomolecular engineering. Ideally, the candidate should have a strong background in biomolecular engineering, preferably with proteins in a context of biological systems engineering, and demonstrate the potential for building an excellent independent research group in the field with a focus on experimental approaches.
D-BSSE of ETH Zurich is located in Basel, the heart of the BioValley area providing excellent opportunities for collaboration within this strong life science research community at the academic, clinical and pharmaceutical level. Its main research thrust is the understanding and engineering of biological systems for medical or chemical purposes, which generates numerous opportunities for interactions. Collaborations with the SystemsX.ch community (www.systemsx.ch), the Swiss initiative in systems biology, are encouraged. The new chair at the D-BSSE will be funded by the Misrock Foundation.
The educational goal of D-BSSE is to teach students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels by integrating expertise and knowledge from biologists, chemists, physicists, engineers, computer scientists and mathematicians, along with industrial collaborators. The successful candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level courses (English).
At ETH Zurich, positions at the assistant professor level are aimed at promoting the careers of young professors and at giving them the opportunity to gain further scientific qualifications in view of an academic career. Assistant professors are granted substantial funds for personnel and infrastructure, which allows them to carry out independent research. With the promotion of excellent young scientists in mind, as well as in view of the development of their further career, as a general rule, assistant professors are not to be older than 35 at the time of their appointment.
Please address your application together with a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and a statement of research and teaching interests to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Ralph Eichler, no later than March 31, 2011. With a view towards increasing the number of female professors, ETH Zurich specifically encourages qualified female candidates to apply.
