[ES_JOBS_NET] Professor or Assistant Professor (Tenure Track), Climate Geology, ETH Zurich

Professor or Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Climate Geology

The Department of Earth Sciences (www.erdw.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich
invites applications for the above-mentioned position at the full,
associate or assistant professor level.

The successful candidate is a leading scientist investigating climates
of the geological past. He or she is expected to build a vigorous
research program aimed at understanding climate and climate changes on
timescales from millennia to geological epochs, using geological or
geochemical approaches and modern analytical techniques. The research
program may, for example, focus on the coupling between climate and
terrestrial and oceanic systems, the development and exploitation of
climate proxies from the marine sediment record, or climate changes
during mass extinction events. Ideally, the future professor would
complement existing strengths in the geosciences and climate sciences at
ETH Zurich. The teaching portfolio is expected to include undergraduate
classes in Earth system sciences, sedimentology and participation in our
field program; more advanced graduate classes may cover aspects of
Earth’s climate, Earth history, and the use of proxies for inferences
about past climates. The new professor will be expected to teach
undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level
courses (English).

An assistant professorship promotes the careers of younger scientists.
The initial appointment is for four years with the possibility of
renewal for an additional three-year period and promotion to a permanent
