EPFL is a leading university with strong emphasis on basic sciences, engineering and life sciences. Research within its Institute of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering (ISIC) includes synthetic and biological chemistry, chemical engineering and physical, analytical and theoretical chemistry.
ISIC is involved in a national multi-disciplinary effort to promote the development of more sustainable processes for chemical production via a National Centre of Competence in Research: NCCR Catalysis, composed of over 40 research groups at EPFL, ETHZ and further Swiss Institutes and Universities:
We invite applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in all areas of chemistry and chemical engineering with a strong link to sustainable chemical production. We are looking in particular for research programs in biotechnology/synthetic biology or all areas of experimental research related to catalysis.
We seek candidates with a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels and an outstanding research record. As professor of chemistry or chemical engineering, the successful candidate is expected to initiate and develop a creative research and teaching program at the forefront of the discipline. They will participate actively in the NCCR catalysis, as part of a multi-disciplinary effort to develop sustainable chemistry at the national and international level.
Significant start-up resources, research budget (including a fixed annual budget for salaries and consumables) and state-of-the-art research infrastructure are available. Salaries and benefits are internationally competitive. We offer a highly international environment that is multi-lingual and multi-cultural.
Applications including cover letter, curriculum vitae, publications list, concise statement of research and teaching interests as well as the names and addresses (including email) of at least three references who are ready to supply their letter upon reques should be submitted in PDF format exclusively via the website
by October 15, 2021.
Enquiries regarding the position may be addressed to:
Prof. Nicolai Cramer
Director of the Institute of Chemistry & Chemical Engineering at EPFL
Enquiries regarding the NCCR catalysis may be addressed to:
