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 professorship offers long-term funding to establish new laboratories
and a dynamic research team, at the core of an innovative research program
directed at the fundamental understanding of the properties and behavior of
Earth materials from the atomic to the global scale. The program includes
experiments at elevated temperatures and pressures and may be complemented
by in-situ observations of natural and experimental materials (e.g.,
synchrotron and other microbeam methods) and/or theoretical modelling of
physical chemistry. Potential fields of research include the physical
properties of crystalline substances, the transport properties and physical
chemistry of melts and fluids, the kinetics of phase transitions or the
characterization of isotopic fractionations operating from the interior to
the surface of planets.

The successful candidate is an experimental geochemist or mineral
physicist, who will combine experimentation at high pressures and
temperatures with complementary theoretical investigations. He or she is a
leading scientist exploring the atomic-scale structure and the physical and
chemical properties of solids, melts or fluids, with the aim of
understanding the internal dynamics of the Earth and other planets. The new
professor and her/his research group will be expected to contribute to
introductory and advanced courses on crystallography, mineralogy and the
physical chemistry of materials at the Earth's surface and interior as well
as 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 position.

Details regarding the application procedure and required documents can be
found at www.erdw.ethz.ch/en/department/jobs/professorships. Please submit
your application addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Lino
Guzzella online at www.facultyaffairs.ethz.ch. ETH Zurich is an equal
opportunity and family friendly employer and is further responsive to the
needs of dual career couples. We specifically encourage women to apply.
