Job announcements

  • Joint Faculty Position in Mathematics & Materials (EPFL)

    The School of Basic Sciences and the School of Engineering at EPFL seek to appoint a Tenure Track Assistant Professor or a Tenured Associate Professor jointly between the Institute of Mathematics and the Institute of Materials. We have a keen interest in outstanding candidates whose research is dedicated to the development of mathematical theory (analytical, geometrical, numerical, computational/algorithmic, topological) underpinning the description of materials. Ideal candidates would have a strong interdisciplinary breadth rather than focus on specific subfields. Indicative fields of interest include, but are not restricted to, multi-scale modelling, topological properties of materials, metamaterials, soft matter, efficient and accurate electronic-structure algorithms, statistical mechanics of emergent phenomena, numerical methods for very high dimensional problems, theory of data-driven algorithms applied to materials discovery.

  • Professor in Physics of Imaging (EPFL) / Head of Mathematics and Physics of Imaging (PSI)

    The School of Basic Sciences of EPFL and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) invite applications for a tenured professor at EPFL who will also be Leader of a new group at PSI devoted to advancing new physical and mathematical methods for imaging at PSI. The holder of this joint EPFL-PSI position will develop new imaging paradigms inspired by disciplines ranging from quantum technologies to data science to fully exploit the new high brilliance X-ray sources SLS 2.0 and SwissFEL.

  • Head, Laboratory for Simulation and Modeling (PSI) / Full Professor, Applied Computational Mathematics (EPFL)

    The Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI), Switzerland’s largest research institute for natural and engineering sciences, and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) are jointly seeking to appoint a dynamic personality with strategic thinking abilities as Head of the Laboratory for Simulation and Modeling (LSM) at PSI, and as tenured Full Professor of Applied and Computational Mathematics at EPFL. This is a full-time position.
