Faculty Position in Advanced Micro-manufacturing

at the Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

The Institute of Microengineering (IMT) within the School of Engineering at EPFL invites applications for a full-time faculty position in the area of advanced micro-manufacturing . Appointments will be considered at the level of tenure-track assistant professor or tenured professor, depending on the qualifications of the applicant.

This new position is part of the recently launched EPFL Micro-manufacturing Science and Engineering Center (EMC). It is aimed at reinforcing the leading position of the Swiss microengineering industry by providing the means to further strengthen its competitiveness through continuous innovation.

Specific areas include, but are not limited to:

  • Additive and hybrid manufacturing processes of miniaturized components with micro-level precision;
  • New approaches for the manufacturing of complex three-dimentional microsystems using a combination of digital manufacturing technologies.

Experience in successful collaborative research programs with industry is highly desirable. The IMT-EPFL offers a particularly advantageous position thanks to its historically very strong links to the diverse and well-established local high-technology industry.

As a faculty member of the School of Engineering, the successful candidate will be expected to initiate an independent and creative research program, participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching, and establish strong links with industrial partners within the framework of the new EMC. Internationally competitive salaries, start-up resources and benefits are offered.

EPFL is a dynamically growing and well-funded institution fostering excellence and diversity. It has a highly international campus at an exceptionally attractive location boasting first-class infrastructure. As a technical university covering essentially the entire palette of engineering and science, EPFL offers a fertile environment for research cooperation between different disciplines. The EPFL environment is multilingual and multi-cultural, with English often serving as a common interface.

Applications should include a cover letter with a statement of motivation, curriculum vitae, list of publications and patents, concise statement of research and teaching interests, and the names and addresses of at least five referees. Applications must be uploaded in PDF format to the recruitment web site via the Apply link above.

Formal evaluation of candidates will begin on December 1st, 2016 and continue until the position is filled.
