The Faculty of Medicine of the University of Zurich (UZH) invites applications for the following academic position:

Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation
Professorship in Human Lactation Research

This endowed Professorship at the University of Zurich complements the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation Chair in Human Lactology established contemporarily at the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Western Australia (UWA). Partnership between the two chairs will contribute to advance global knowledge on breastfeeding and its long-term health benefits to mothers and babies.

At the UZH, the Professorship will be embedded in an interdisciplinary environment at the University Hospital Zurich and the University Children's Hospital Zurich - Eleonoren Foundation. It will benefit from existing expertise in epidemiology, clinically relevant basic research in immuno-allergology, nutrition and neonatology and will have numerous opportunities to develop research alliances on multiple aspects of human lactation research.

The appointee will establish a successful research group at the Faculty of Medicine, supported in part by competitive third-party grants, and working collaboratively with its partner at UWA. Additional duties include the active participation to undergraduate and graduate teaching in Human Medicine and to academic self-administration.

Applicants are internationally recognized for their scientific expertise in the field of human lactation research, as documented by high ranking publications, conference invitations and successful acquisition of competitive third-party funding. Leadership experience in an academic environment is expected.
