Professor of Climate and Weather Risks

The Department of Environmental Systems Science (www.usys.ethz.ch<http://www.usys.ethz.ch>) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned professorship.

The position will be jointly at the Swiss Federal Office of Meteorology and Climatology (MeteoSwiss) and the Department of Environmental Systems Science. This framework provides a wide range of opportunities for collaboration in the areas of climate variability and uncertainty, as well as climate impact scenarios, Earth system science, the interpretation of climate model data, engineering and societal risks and others.

The successful candidate is expected to develop an innovative research program that makes important scientific contributions to methodologies managing climate and weather risks associated with both climate variability and climate change. The research portfolio should include quantitative methodologies using probabilistic approaches to address climate and weather risks, and include stakeholder involvement. The core research activity could be in one or more fields related to climate change adaptation, treatment of uncertainties in risk assessment, or linking climate and weather predictions and climate change scenarios to decision making. Candidates should have an excellent international track record in disciplinary as well as system-oriented multidisciplinary research, and be able to effectively lead a research team. Furthermore, the new professor is expected to develop classes for students focusing on the development of quantitative methods, and interdisciplinary courses introducing students to the challenges and successful practices in applied policy areas. Undergraduate level courses are taught in German or English, and graduate level courses in English.
