Professor of Molecular Plant Sciences

The Department of Biology (www.biol.ethz.ch<http://www.biol.ethz.ch>) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position in the area of Molecular Plant Biology.

The successful candidate is expected to build a vibrant, world-class research programme that combines cutting-edge approaches in plant molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and/or genetics using quantitative approaches to generate new knowledge of fundamental molecular mechanisms in plant model systems. Any areas of molecular plant science will be considered, but applications in the field of environmental perception, signalling and adaptive developmental responses are specifically encouraged. We are especially interested in candidates who will take advantage of the existing expertise in Plant Biology, in the Department of Biology, and the larger Life Science Zurich research environment. The successful applicant is also expected to promote translational research activities and engage with strategic initiatives of ETH Zurich.

The new professor will be a member of the Department of Biology and the newly-founded Institute of Molecular Plant Biology located on the Hoenggerberg campus. The Department offers access to state-of-the-art equipment (e.g. the ScopeM imaging facility and the Functional Genomics Centre) and outstanding scientific opportunities to participate in interdisciplinary research programmes. Integration into existing networks will facilitate interactions with the local research community (e.g. via the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Centre and the World Food System Centre). The new professor will engage in the plant biology teaching programme at both undergraduate and master levels (teaching may be in German or English).

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

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of future research and teaching interests, and a description of the three most important achievements. 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 2017. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer and is responsive to the needs of dual career couples. We specifically encourage women to apply.
