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 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.
