This was published on September 2, 2020

The Institute of Materials of EPFL invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position in computational materials science, as part of the long-term support measures for the National Centre for Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials MARVEL, as it enters its 3rd phase (2022-26). EPFL seeks exceptional individuals who will develop and drive a research program at the forefront of the field, who have strong dedication to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and who will be proactive members of their professional and university communities.

Applications are invited covering research in any area of computational materials science, with a particular focus on computational and data-driven materials discovery. Examples of topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the development of theoretical and computational methods for materials modeling, and/or their application to understand, predict, design, and discover novel materials.

The opening is at the tenure-track, assistant professor level; under exceptional circumstances an appointment at a more senior, tenured level may be considered. Internationally competitive salaries and start-up resources, sustained internal funding, and benefits are offered; EPFL is currently ranked 14th worldwide in the QS Rankings, and the Institute of Materials is its top-ranked department, 7th worldwide. In addition to a broad community of computational scientists, EPFL benefits from hosting on campus CECAM, with a very active program of conferences, workshops and schools across many domains of computational science.

For full consideration applications should be submitted by December 14, 2020, midnight Central European Time at this website.
