Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Food Immunology

The Department of Health Sciences and Technology (www.hest.ethz.ch<http://www.hest.ethz.ch>) of ETH Zurich and its Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health, IFNH (www.ifnh.ethz.ch<http://www.ifnh.ethz.ch>), invites applications for the above-mentioned position which reflects the importance of the relationship between food, nutrition and chronic disease, and the essential role of immunology in the health, medical and food science areas in the department.

The successful candidate will lead a competitive research programme focusing on mucosal immunology and addressing mechanisms that link food and nutrition with the structure, function and development of the human immune system. A desired approach involves hypothesis-driven basic molecular and systems-oriented research inspired by clinical/societal problems and potentially validated with translational research. The new assistant professor should apply state-of-the-art cellular and molecular biological approaches, potentially including the generation and analysis of model organisms. A translational approach including collaborations with theoretical and experimental groups at ETH Zurich and at the University Hospital Zurich is desired. At the assistant professor level, commitment to teaching and the ability to lead a research group are expected.

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.
