Professor of Disease Genetics / Epigenetics

The Department of Biology (www.biol.ethz.ch) at ETH Zürich invites applications for a position of Associate or Full Professor in the area of Disease Genetics / Epigenetics.

Candidates are expected to build a strong and independent research program in molecular genetics or epigenetics aimed at studying the relationship between the genome / epigenome and mammalian organ function in health and disease. In his or her hypothesis-driven research the successful applicant should combine molecular / biochemical approaches and advanced genetics and functional genomics technologies with functional studies based on viral vectors, RNA interference, transgenesis or knockout technology using the mouse as a model system. He or she should complement the research in the area of Molecular Health Sciences performed at the Department of Biology, with a strong focus on the understanding of disease mechanisms and on the development of the scientific foundations for personalized medicine. Candidates integrating a translational research program are particularly welcome.

The new Professor will be a member of the Department of Biology of ETH Zurich and strengthen the research focus in Molecular Health Sciences.
