No open positions.

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.

Postdoctoral positions

The Department of Mathematics at ETH Zurich invites applications for postdoctoral positions in all areas of mathematics. These positions are awarded for two years with start date 1 September 2016 and the possibility of extension to three years. Applicants must have completed their doctoral studies by the start date of the appointment, and preferably no more than three years before. Applications should demonstrate dedication to and strong promise in research. The teaching load of these positions is light, and courses may be taught in English.

We specifically encourage women to apply for these positions.

For full consideration, applications should be received by 16 November 2015. Late applications will be considered for any positions remaining open at the time they are received.
