Professor of Materials Engineering / Active Materials

The Department of Materials (www.mat.ethz.ch<http://www.mat.ethz.ch>) at ETH Zurich invites applications for a faculty position on all professorial levels in the area of Materials Engineering / Active Materials. Such Active Materials may be engineered by enhancing fundamental materials properties within diverse materials classes (polymers, metals, functional ceramics) or by combining multiple material types in hybrid systems. The properties and responsiveness of these active materials may result from their improved functionality, from their structuring into hierarchically organized entities, and/or from the assembly of individual parts with different properties into larger structures or devices. Fields of particular interest include adaptive materials and structures, integrated electrochemical systems, metamaterials, artificial sense organs, and polymer processing technology to develop novel electronic and optical devices.

The candidate should strengthen the engineering aspects in the Materials Department and is thus expected to perform research and teaching in the area of Materials Engineering. The new professor will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level courses (English). The successful candidate must have a strong experimental background in active materials and should be interested in understanding their fundamental interaction mechanisms across nanoscopic to macroscopic length scales. Candidates working in industry are also encouraged to apply.

Please apply online at www.facultyaffairs.ethz.ch<http://www.facultyaffairs.ethz.ch>

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a statement of future research and teaching interests (both of maximum five pages). The letter of application should be addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Lino Guzzella. The closing date for applications is 30 April 2015. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer and is further responsive to the needs of dual career couples. We specifically encourage women to apply.
