The School of Basic Sciences (Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics) at EPFL seeks to fill two Faculty positions in Mathematics, one at the Full Professor level, and one at any rank (Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Full Professor). We seek outstanding candidates with research interests in any field of Pure Mathematics. Candidates with research interests in algebraic structures, and/or geometry/topology, and/or discrete mathematics, are particularly encouraged to apply.
At the tenured (Full or Associate Professor level), we expect world leading profiles in their respective fields. At the Tenure-Track level (Assistant Professor) we expect candidates showing exceptional promise to develop into world leaders. Priority will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any particular specialization area.
Candidates should hold a PhD and have an excellent record of scientific accomplishments in the field, commensurate to the rank they are applying to. In addition, commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate, master and doctoral levels is expected.
Proficiency in French teaching is not required, but willingness to learn the language expected.
