Applicants should demonstrate an excellent international record of research accomplishments in engineering and/or natural sciences, including transport phenomena. They should have a strong motivation and undisputable commitment to undergraduate and graduate student education. The successful candidate is expected to establish an ambitious, world-class program in a research-intensive, cross-disciplinary environment at the Institute of Process Engineering where state-of-the-art research in characterization, analysis, and synthesis is ongoing. Excellent research and teaching lab facilities are being established across ETH Zurich (including the initiative with IBM Zurich Research Laboratories). Furthermore, the Swiss research and industrial landscape offers extraordinary opportunities, particularly in pharma, food, biotech, and energy.
