The School of Basic Sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) at EPFL seeks to appoint a tenure track Assistant Professor in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics. The appointment is solicited at the Tenure Track level, but in exceptional cases, appointments at other ranks will be considered as well.
We expect candidates to establish a leadership in a relevant area and strengthen the EPFL endeavor in Condensed Matter Physics. Priority will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any particular specialization area.
Candidates should hold a PhD and have an excellent record of scientific accomplishments in condensed matter physics. In addition, commitment to teaching at the undergraduate level, and specialized courses at the Master and doctoral levels are expected. Proficiency in French teaching is not required, but willingness to learn the language expected.
EPFL, with its main campus located in Lausanne, Switzerland, on the shores of lake Geneva, is a dynamically growing and well-funded institution fostering excellence and diversity. It has a highly international campus with first-class infrastructure, including high performance computing, facilities for material growth and characterization and nano-fabrication facilities (CMi). Collaborations with the ETH-domain including exploitation of the large scale facilities (free-electron laser, synchrotron, neutron source etc.) at Paul Scherrer Institute are welcome.
As a technical university covering essentially the entire palette of engineering and science, EPFL offers a fertile environment for research cooperation between different disciplines. The EPFL environment is multi-lingual and multi-cultural, with English often serving as a common interface.
Applications should include a cover letter, a CV with a list of publications, a concise statement of research (maximum 3 pages) and teaching interests (one page), and the names and addresses (including e-mail) of at least three references.
Applications should be uploaded (as PDFs) by November 30, 2018 to
