Faculty of Science
The Faculty of Science at the University of Zurich invites applications for a
Professorship in Pure Mathematics
in order to complement our team of experts in mathematics.
Candidates are expected to be internationally recognized mathematicians. Candidates with
outstanding records in algebra, analysis, geometry or topology are particularly encouraged
to apply. Applicants with a background in other relevant fields of pure mathematics are also
encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate is expected to develop an independent research group in pure
mathematics. Contributing to the existing undergraduate and graduate teaching efforts in
mathematics (in English or German) will form an integral part of the position. The successful
candidate should further contribute to the development of the institute and is expected to
acquire external funding. The position will be preferentially filled at the level of full professor,
but offers the possibility of open rank hiring as well. The position may be occupied as a
part-time or shared professorship.
The University of Zurich provides generous research support, including dedicated funds for
personnel and running expenses, and competitive start-up packages. Zurich‘s scientific
environment includes a rich spectrum of research activities in mathematics, and provides
extensive opportunities for collaborations within the University and with the ETH Zurich.
Switzerland provides excellent opportunities for external funding of research. The University
and the city of Zurich also offer a stimulating cultural and family-friendly environment.
Application packages should include a one-page summary; motivation letter; a full curriculum
vitae; a vision statement of research and teaching interests. Applicants may provide names
and addresses of up to three potential referees (see http://jobs.mnf.uzh.ch/mat
guidelines). Documents should be addressed to Prof. Dr. Michael Schaepman, Dean of the
Faculty of Science, University of Zurich, and uploaded as a single PDF file
by October 23, 2016. For further information, please contact
Prof. Dr. Alberto Cattaneo at firstname.lastname@example.org
