The School of Life Sciences of EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position in the field of Cancer Bioengineering.
This search is part of major initiatives in the Lake Geneva region to promote cancer research, which is increasingly driven by integrating research from different fields ranging from basic sciences (life sciences, physics, chemistry, computing and engineering) to clinical research and treatment.
The successful candidate will join the faculty of the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC); develop an independent internationally prominent research program in the broad domain of cancer research; commit to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and supervise Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows. We are looking for candidates with core expertise and experience in any bioengineering-related area, including but not limited to tissue engineering, synthetic biology, chemical biology, materials science, drug design, computational biology, and instrumentation development. Their future research proposal must have a strong cancer research focus.
The successful candidate will be a part of EPFL’s cancer research institute (ISREC), and is expected to perform and coordinate highly interactive biomedical research, reaching out and taking advantage of EPFL’s interdisciplinary campus (Schools of Basic Sciences, Engineering, and Information and Communication Technologies) and its involvement in
the multi-institutional Swiss Cancer Center Leman, which brings together EPFL, the Universities of Lausanne and Geneva, and clinical and translational research components of the University Hospitals of Lausanne and Geneva.
Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications (annotated to indicate the candidate’s contributions) a synopsis of major accomplishments, and a concise statement of future research agenda and teaching interests, along with the contacts of 3-5 referees who are ready to supply their letter upon request. Applications should be uploaded as PDF files to the recruitment web site:
Formal evaluation of candidates will begin on January 31, 2023, and continue until the position is filled.
