Professor or Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Observational / Experimental Astrophysics
The Institute for Astronomy at ETH Zurich (www.phys.ethz.ch) invites applications for a professorship in Observational/Experimental Astrophysics. The new professor is expected to develop an outstanding research program in observational or experimental astrophysics, which may include the leadership of observational programs on major facilities, the development of advanced instrumentation, or the phenomenological modeling of data. The primary criterion is either demonstrated or potential excellence in research and teaching, rather than a particular scientific field. The Chair comes with sufficient resources to establish a significant research group. Teaching responsibilities include courses in introductory physics and more advanced courses in astrophysics. The new professor will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level courses (English).The appointment will be at a level commensurate with experience.
Assistant professorships have been established to promote the careers of younger scientists. The 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 a curriculum vitae and a list of publications and a brief statement of present and future research interests to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Ralph Eichler, ETH Zurich, Raemistrasse 101, 8092 Zurich, Switzerland (or via e-mail to faculty-recruiting at sl.ethz.ch), no later than April 30, 2010. With a view toward increasing the number of female professors, ETH Zurich specifically encourages qualified female candidates to apply.
