Assistant Professor of Cellular Biochemistry
Assistant Professor of Systems Biology

The Department of Biology (www.biol.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for above-mentioned Assistant Professorships (non-tenure track).

The Department of Biology offers outstanding scientific opportunities to participate in interdisciplinary research projects, including close interactions with the Swiss initiative for Systems Biology (SystemsX.ch), the Functional Genomics Center Zurich, and the light- and electron microscopy facilities at ETH Zurich. An interactive, state-of-the-art research environment is provided at the campus Hoenggerberg, with colleagues in computer science, chemistry and physics both at ETH Zurich and University of Zurich.

Research programmes in Cellular Biochemistry should be directed towards molecular mechanisms underlying the dynamic organisation of cellular processes and cell architecture with a preferred emphasis on membrane dynamics and lipid biology.  Potential topics include, but are not limited to cell growth and division, intracellular transport, and organelle organisation and inheritance.  The professorship will ideally be located in the Institute of Biochemistry, taking advantage of its strengths in light microscopy.

Research in Systems Biology should focus on cellular systems and processes as integrated networks of interacting molecules. The research programme should be directed to the dynamics of uni- or multicellular systems by applying or developing quantitative methods that may include omics techniques, live imaging or single cell analyses. The professorship will be part of the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology.

The successful candidates will be expected to establish and lead an independent and internationally competitive research group that attracts external funding, with the support of the joint mentoring programme between the Department and the hosting Institutes. In addition, they will actively contribute to the research environment in the Department, and participate in the teaching of graduate and undergraduate students.  They will contribute to the ongoing efforts to increase teaching of quantitative approaches in biology.  In particular, the candidates will participate in the Bachelor and Master curriculum in Systems Biology and Cellular Biochemistry. The new professors will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (German or Eng­lish) and graduate level courses (English).

The 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.

Your application should include your curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of your research and teaching interests, and the names of at least three referees. The letter of application should be addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Ralph Eichler. The closing date for applications is 30 September 2012. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. In order to increase the number of women in leading academic positions, we specifically encourage women to apply. ETH Zurich is further responsive to the needs of dual career couples and qualifies as a family friendly employer. Please apply online at www.facultyaffairs.ethz.ch.
