Professor of Healthy Ageing

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 professor is expected to be a world-renowned expert in the field of ageing research, or in the prevention of ageing-associated diseases like e.g. neurodegeneration or diabetes. She or he has a long-standing expertise in the elucidation of biological mechanisms of ageing using model organisms and/or human cohorts to apply expertise in functional genetics or pharmacological/nutritional interventions. Alternatively, the successful candidate is a proven expert in applying exercise to prevent or mechanistic aids to ameliorate symptoms of functional decline. The research will provide unprecedented approaches to promote healthy ageing by preventing or reverting physiological, yet widely undefined hallmarks of higher age. Specific expertise may include (i) biological mechanisms of ageing, using model organisms like yeast, fruit flies, roundworms and/or mice, (ii) genetics of ageing and age-associated diseases, including neurodegeneration and metabolic disorders, (iii) mechanism-based prevention of physiological decline by pharmacological, nutritional or exercise interventions, as well as tissues engineering and replacement, and (iv) the quantification, maintenance and restoration of movement capacity applying high-end engineering and robotics approaches.

Additional prerequisites are a strong motivation and an undisputable commitment to teaching. In general, at ETH Zurich undergraduate level courses are taught in German or English and graduate level courses are taught in English.

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

Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and projects, 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 31 August 2018. 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.
