The Department of Biology (www.biol.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position in the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology (www.imsb.ethz.ch). Together with Life Science Zurich, the Department of Biology offers access to state-of-the-art equipment and outstanding scientific opportunities to participate in interdisciplinary research programmes.
The new professor is expected to build a vibrant, world-class research programme in the general field of computational biology with a particular interest into modelling and analysing dynamic interactions between cellular molecules and their phenotypic consequences. Examples are mechanistic modelling of cellular processes, modelling at the single cell or organismic level, analysis of image data in cell biology, analysis of networks involving gene activity, metabolite distribution, or protein interaction in systems biology and medical applications, and genotype to phenotype mapping. The successful candidate is a computer scientist, informatician, engineer, or physicist whose research focus is on addressing biological or clinical questions with, at least in part, computational methods. She or he will engage and contribute to the systems biology teaching programme with an emphasis on quantitative thinking and computational methods (teaching may be in German or English).
