Certified Software Development Professional (CSDP)
Faculty 4-Year College/University
Physics: Condensed Matter
The Department of Physics (www.phys.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position.
Successful candidates sustain a strong research programme in one of the areas of condensed matter physics or related topics in quantum optics, for example in the context of many-body physics and strong correlations, mesoscopic physics, statistical or non-equilibrium physics, or atomic and molecular many-body physics. Commitment to teaching and the ability to lead a research group are expected. Teaching duties involve the theoretical physics curriculum at the undergraduate level (in German or English) and advanced courses in the Masters programme (in English). The Department of Physics offers a stimulating environment in mathematical, theoretical, and computational physics, as well as in experimental high-energy physics, condensed matter physics, astrophysics and observational cosmology, quantum optics, and neuroinformatics.
Assistant professorships have been established to promote the careers of younger scientists. ETH Zurich implements a tenure track system equivalent to other top international universities. The level of the appointment will depend on the successful candidate’s qualifications.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of future research and teaching interests, a description of the three most important achievements, and the names of five references. The letter of application should be addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Joël Mesot. Submissions will be reviewed starting on 15 December 2019, but applications are welcome until the position is filled. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer, strives to increase the number of women professors, and is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.
