Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Nutrition and Chronic Disease

The Department of Health Sciences and Technology (www.hest.ethz.ch<http://www.hest.ethz.ch>) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position. The new assistant professor will be an integral part of the Institute of Food, Nutrition and Health, IFNH (www.ifnh.ethz.ch<http://www.ifnh.ethz.ch>), which is the only university institute in Switzerland where research and teaching in all aspects of food, nutrition and health sciences takes place.

Chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease have become a health concern in both the industrialised and emerging economies of the world. This position reflects the increased scientific and public interest in the relationship between food, nutrition and chronic disease, and helps to strengthen the research and teaching activities of the department in those areas.

The assistant professor will focus on the mechanisms that link food and nutrition patterns to prevention of chronic disease. She or he is expected to lead a world-class research programme in that respective area and should apply state-of-the‐art technologies with a major focus on human studies, which might be complemented by studying underlying mechanisms in animal models. This requires an in-depth understanding of how nutrition affects human metabolism and plays a role in disease development. Commitment to teaching and the ability to lead a research group are required.

Assistant professorships have been established to promote the careers of younger scientists. ETH Zurich implements a tenure track system equivalent to other top international universities.

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

The letter of application should be addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Lino Guzzella. The closing date for applications is 30 November 2017. 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.
