The Institute of Mathematics at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) invites applications for a

full-time Bernoulli Instructorship Probability and Analysis


Main duties and responsibilities include :

Bernoulli Instructors are expected to teach courses in their broader domain at all levels. The initial teaching load is light, corresponding to half that of regular faculty, and gradually increases to the latter.

Your profile :

Bernoulli Instructorships are prestigious postdoctoral research positions hosted within the Institute of Mathematics.

They offer complete research autonomy and provide travel support, for a period up to four years, allowing promising early career researchers (up to 3 years post-PhD) to launch their independent research career.

Bernoulli Instructors are expected to be able to teach courses in English. Ability to teach in French is a plus, but not a prerequisite.

We offer :

The term of the position is two years, with the possibility of extension for another two years.

EPFL salaries for instructors are highly competitive. In addition, instructors receive a substantial yearly budget for travel expenses and other expenditures.
