16 September 2005 - The Computer Science Department at ETH Zurich announces several professor positions with emphasis on Computer Systems, Information Security, Information Systems, Distributed Systems and Multimedia. We invite applications from candidates with a strong research record, internationally recognized credentials, and an applied, systems-oriented focus.
While excellence is more important than precise specialization, we are particularly interested in the following research areas:
Professors are expected to contribute to undergraduate and graduate teaching and to carry out research; numerous collaboration opportunities exist with research groups at ETH Zurich, labs in Switzerland and the rest of Europe, and industry. New professors benefit from outstanding human and material resources, the longstanding ETH tradition of excellence in computer science, and the exciting environment of ETH as a whole (#10 worldwide and #1 for continental Europe in the recent ranking of all the world’s universities by the Higher Education Supplement of the London Times). Zurich is consistently ranked as one of the best locations worldwide for quality of life, with endless recreational opportunities, a vibrant cultural life, an outstanding local transportation system, easy access to Europe and the world, and the international flair of a metropolis with a human size.
The positions can be filled at the Assistant Professor or Full Professor level; assistant professorships have been established to promote the careers of younger scientists, with an initial appointment of four years and the possibility of renewal for an additional two-year period and promotion to a permanent position through a US-style tenure track system. Prior knowledge of German is not a requirement; courses from the second year on may be taught in English. ETH recruits its faculty, researchers and PhD students at the top international level.
are asked to send their curriculum vitae, list of publications, names of at
least three references, and a short overview of their research interests to the President of ETH Zurich,
Prof. Ernst Hafen, ETH Zentrum, CH-8092 Zurich,

specifically encourages women to apply with a view towards increasing the proportion
of female professors.
