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.

We invite applications for a tenured professor position in Experimental Physical or Analytical Chemistry.

Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, the development of new methods for characterisation of molecules or materials, potentially in relation to applications in renewable energy and storage, sustainable chemical production, or development of therapeutics. The laboratories of the chair are located in Sion at the Valais campus of EPFL.

We seek candidates with a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels and an outstanding research record. As a professor of chemistry, 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 development of the Institute, as part of a multi-disciplinary effort to develop 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.
