Two open faculty positions at EPFL’s Institute of Mechanical Engineering, in the general area of “Thermal Transport for Energy” and “Sustainable Manufacturing”. These positions primarily target applicants at the level of tenure-track Assistant Professor, but exceptional candidates may be considered at the rank of Associate Professor with tenure.
Starting at EPFL is ideal for young Assistant Professors: the position comes with a generous starting package (incl. funded doctoral student positions and a startup package) and EPFL researchers are typically successful in securing further funds from the Swiss National Science Foundation and European Funding agencies. Tenure evaluation takes place after 6 years, with promotion to tenured Associate Professor. EPFL is an equal opportunity employer and family friendly university. It is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and strongly encourages women to apply.
