Zurich, Switzerland: Acad. Fellow, Evolution in Action PDF Tisk Email
University of Zurich -- Switzerland -- URPP "Evolution in Action"
Academic Fellow Position (4 years)
About the URPP Evolution in Action
The University Research Priority Program (URPP) "Evolution in Action:
From Genomes to Ecosystems" invites applications for an Academic Fellow
position. Evolutionary biology is a core area of biology and understanding
the underlying mechanisms is of crucial importance for both basic and
applied aspects of biology and medicine.
 Beyond the biological and medical
fields, evolutionary concepts are an important theme in the social and
economic sciences. The URPP Evolution in Action is set in this wide
area of research (see http://www.evolution.uzh.ch/index.html). It brings
together multiple research groups of the Faculty of Science, the Faculty
of Medicine, and the Faculty of Arts, and plays an important integrative
role for diverse disciplines at the UZH.
This is an opportunity for young scientists to pursue a period of
independent research before taking a faculty position. The successful
candidate will direct his/her own research under the mentorship of a
senior faculty member. A central aspect of the URPP Evolution in Action
is the use of next generation sequencing data to address important
evolutionary questions. The research topic of the Academic Fellow
must be linked to the research theme of the URPP Evolution in Action,
and preferably include an integrative/interdisciplinary approach. The
position in the midst of the diverse groups of the URPP Evolution in
Action offers the unique opportunity to network and collaborate with
both senior and junior scientists in a diverse range of disciplines.
We are seeking outstanding young scientists who have recently
received their Ph.D. degree or have completed a first postdoctoral
position (application is possible up to 4 years after obtaining
the Ph.D. degree). Applicants should have a strong and demonstrated
background in the research area they propose to pursue as Academic
Fellow. This position requires strong communication skills and the
ability to interact with the diverse areas of expertise within the URPP
Evolution in Action. The working language of the URPP Evolution in Action
is English; German skills are helpful, but not essential.
We offer a friendly, international, dynamic and team-oriented scientific
environment at the UZH. The UZH is the largest University of Switzerland
with internationally leading institutes in the Life Sciences. The
Academic Fellow position is available earliest in January 2015 and
runs on a fixed-term contract of four years. The salary is competitive
and the Academic Fellow position also includes a generous budget for
running costs and support personnel. The UZH is an equal opportunity
employer. Part-time work is possible. Zurich is an attractive city in
beautiful surroundings, a multinational population, and many educational
and recreational opportunities.
For questions relating to the position, kindly contact the Program
Coordinator of the URPP Evolution in Action, Dr. Annegret Lesslauer.
