SNF Förderprofessuren

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) offers each year a number of assistant professor positions to persons who have either a degree from a Swiss university or Swiss citizenship or who have worked for several years at a Swiss university. With these positions, the host institution can be chosen by the applicant, and we welcome applications choosing our department. Such an application must be sent directly to the SNF; for further information see the SNSF professorships programme.
Since the prior support of the host institution is required, it is most important that applicants inform the department as early as possible. A curriculum vitae, the list of publications, and a research prospectus should reach the department at least two months before the SNF application deadline. The department will decide whether to support the application and communicate its decision to the candidate in time before the SNF application deadline.
