EPFL is a leading university with strong emphasis on basic sciences, engineering and life sciences. Research within its Institute of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering (ISIC) includes synthetic and biological chemistry, chemical engineering and physical, analytical and theoretical chemistry.
ISIC is in particular involved in a national effort to promote catalysis for the development of more sustainable processes for energy and chemical production.
We invite applications for a tenure track assistant professor position in chemistry or chemical engineering with an outstanding research record related to catalysis in the broadest sense and a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. All candidates with a research program broadly related to catalysis (including but not limited to the fields of biocatalysis, digitization and machine learning for catalysis research, tailored inorganic catalysis, and physical methods for catalysis) are encouraged to apply.
As professor of chemistry or chemical engineering, the successful candidate is expected to initiate and develop a creative research and teaching program at the forefront of the discipline. They will participate actively in a broad multi-disciplinary effort to develop sustainable chemistry at the national and international level.
Significant start-up resources, research budget (including a fixed annual budget for salaries and consumables) and state-of-the-art research infrastructure are available. Salaries and benefits are internationally competitive. We offer a highly international environment that is multi-lingual and multi-cultural.
EPFL is an equal opportunity employer and family friendly university. It is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty. It strongly encourages women to apply.
