  Assistant Professor Tenure Track in Digital Bioinorganic Chemistry

 

We are seeking candidates with an outstanding track record to build an internationally recognized research program in digital bioinorganic chemistry. While all areas of biological inorganic chemistry will be considered, upon equal qualifications, preference will be given to applicants with an interest in research directions complementing those of existing groups. This professorship lies within the UZH Digital Society Initiative and hence its research must have a strong link to aspects of digitalization, e.g. Big Data, bioinformatics, simulations, spectroscopy, high throughput, machine learning, or data mining. The selected candidate is expected to lead an independent research group linking experimental and computational methods and to participate in teaching at all levels of the BSc, MSc and PhD programs. The University of Zurich has an established program for career progression allowing promotion to associate and full professor upon successful evaluation.

 

The University of Zurich provides generous research support, including dedicated funds for personnel, running expenses and competitive start-up packages. Moreover, the successful applicant is expected to acquire external research funding. Zurich’s scientific environment encompasses a rich spectrum of diverse activities spanning physical to biomedical research that provides extensive opportunities for collaboration with research groups at the University of Zurich and other leading Swiss research institutions.

The employment conditions for this position follow the legal regulations of the University of Zurich (please see www.prof.uzh.ch/en.html), including part-time options. The University of Zurich is an equal opportunities employer and in particular strives to increase the percentage of women in leading positions (please see www.mnf.uzh.ch/en/mnf-gleichstellung.html).
