The School of Life Sciences of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) invites applications for a faculty position in Metabolism (junior to mid-stage career). We are particularly interested in candidates who are familiar with integrative research approaches as well as those using computational modelling of human metabolism. This search is part of an initiative to promote research in the field of metabolism in the context of nutrition, human health and disease.

The successful candidate will develop an independent and dynamic research program, participate in both undergraduate and graduate teaching, supervise PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. The EPFL School of Life Sciences is at the heart of a diverse, highly interactive and interdisciplinary biomedical research community. It fosters interactions with other relevant domains at EPFL, such as the Schools of Basic Sciences, Engineering, and Information and Communication Technologies as well as with the inter-institutional Lausanne Integrative Metabolism and Nutrition Alliance (LIMNA) and the Nestlé Institute for Health Sciences.

Significant start-up resources, research budget and state-of-the-art research infrastructure are available. Salaries and benefits are internationally competitive. EPFL as an institution strongly favours open access science. Thus, commitment to open access and data dissemination will be positively valued.

Applications should include a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with a contribution-annotated list of publications, a list of 5 key publications, a synopsis of principal accomplishments, a concise future research statement (3 pages max) and teaching interests, the names and addresses (including e-mail) of five referees, and should be submitted via the Apply link above.
