The Institute of Bioengineering at EPFL is soliciting applications for
a tenure-track assistant professor conducting cutting-edge research at
the interface of bioengineering and cancer biology
. Appointments at
other ranks will be exceptionally considered as well. Areas of interest
include, but are not limited to: synthetic biology, biomolecular engineering,
organoid and organ/tumor-on-a-chip technology, immuneengineering
as well as innovative approaches to detecting, monitoring
and treating cancer.
Bioengineering at EPFL is well integrated between the School of Engineering
and the School of Life Sciences. Close interactions with the
Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, the University of Lausanne,
the Canton of Vaud University Hospital (CHUV), and the Wyss
Center in Geneva are possible, and encouraged.
The EPFL is a dynamic science and engineering university fostering
excellence and diversity. It is consistently ranked among the top research
institutions in Europe, and offers a rich international environment
with English as the common language. Research is supported
by numerous outstanding core facilities including imaging, proteomics,
bioinformatics, transgenomics, flow cytometry, microfabrication,
and biomolecular screening.
Successful candidates are expected to initiate independent, creative
research programs and participate in undergraduate and graduate-
teaching. Internationally competitive salaries, start-up resources
and benefits are offered.
Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with
a list of publications, a concise statement of research and teaching
interests, and the names and addresses (including e-mail) of at least
three referees. Applications should be uploaded (as PDF files) to the
recruitment web site:
Formal evaluation of candidates will begin on December 1st, 2016
and continue until the position is filled.
Enquiries may be sent to:
Prof. Matthias P. Lütolf
Search Committee Chair
