Professor or Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Climate Geology

The Department of Earth Sciences (www.erdw.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich 
invites applications for the above-mentioned position at the full, 
associate or assistant professor level.

The successful candidate is a leading scientist investigating climates 
of the geological past. He or she is expected to build a vigorous 
research program aimed at understanding climate and climate changes on 
timescales from millennia to geological epochs, using geological or 
geochemical approaches and modern analytical techniques. The research 
program may, for example, focus on the coupling between climate and 
terrestrial and oceanic systems, the development and exploitation of 
climate proxies from the marine sediment record, or climate changes 
during mass extinction events. Ideally, the future professor would 
complement existing strengths in the geosciences and climate sciences at 
ETH Zurich. The teaching portfolio is expected to include undergraduate 
classes in Earth system sciences, sedimentology and participation in our 
field program; more advanced graduate classes may cover aspects of 
Earth’s climate, Earth history, and the use of proxies for inferences 
about past climates. The new professor will be expected to teach 
undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level 
courses (English).

An assistant professorship promotes the careers of younger scientists. 
The initial appointment is for four years with the possibility of 
renewal for an additional three-year period and promotion to a permanent
