The Department of Computer Science (www.inf.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for an assistant professorship (tenure track) in computer science with focus on quantum computing. This includes topics such as quantum complexity theory, quantum algorithms, quantum programming languages, and quantum systems and applications.
Applicants should be strongly rooted in computer science, have internationally recognized expertise in their field and pursue research at the forefront of computer science. Successful candidates should establish and lead a strong research program. They will be expected to supervise doctoral students and teach both undergraduate and graduate level courses (in German or in English). Collaboration in research and teaching is expected both within the department and with other groups of ETH Zurich and related institutions.
Assistant professorships have been established to promote the careers of younger scientists. ETH Zurich implements a tenure track system similar to other top international universities.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications with the three most important ones marked, a statement of future research and teaching interests, the names of three references, and a description of the three most important achievements. The letter of application should be addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Joël Mesot. The closing date for applications is 10 January 2021. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer, strives to increase the number of women professors, and is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.
