The course will be a co-taught course, in which the postdoc/ fellow would have significant input and would also do some lecturing. Our offices are located in downtown Zurich, and the working language is English. The appointment will be for at least one year and up to three years (contingent on satisfactory performance) with a flexible starting date. Part-time appointments are also possible in order to accommodate the needs of highly competitive candidates. Salaries are internationally competitive, paid according to ETH standards.
