The Institute of Materials in the School of Engineering invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor position in Computational Materials Science. We seek exceptional individuals who will develop and drive a research program at the forefront of the field, who have strong dedication to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and who will be proactive members of their professional and university communities.
Applications are invited covering research in any area of computational materials science, with a particular focus on computational and data-driven materials discovery. This is of special relevance to the Swiss research landscape as EPFL is the leading house of the National Centre for Competence in Research MARVEL (nccr-marvel.ch), dedicated to the computational design and discovery of novel materials. Examples of topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the development of theoretical and computational methods for materials modeling, and/or their application to understand, predict, design, and discover novel materials.
As a faculty member of the School of Engineering the successful candidate will be expected to initiate an independent and creative research program and participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching. Internationally competitive salaries and start-up resources, together with sustained internal funding and benefits are offered.
Applications should include 1) a cover letter with a statement of motivation (one to two pages), 2) curriculum vitae, 3) research plans (up to five pages), 4) teaching interests and plans (up to two pages), 5) publications list (including - if possible - links to your up-to-date research profile on e.g. ResearcherID or Google Scholar), 6) names and contact information for three (min) to five (max) referees. Applications must be uploaded in PDF format to the recruitment web site:
