We are pleased to let you know that we have just advertised a new
opening for an Assistant Professorship in Digital Chemistry at ETH
Zurich. This is an area that we are looking to strengthen both in the
Institute for Chemical and Bioengineering, where the position will be
based at ETH Zurich, and across Switzerland.
The position is supported by the recently established National Center of
Competence in Research, NCCR Catalysis, an initiative funded mainly by
the Swiss National Science Foundation. The program aims to develop new
catalytic processes that enable the production of societally-relevant
compounds like fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and functional materials
from abundant and renewable small-molecule feedstocks (e.g., carbon
dioxide, methane, water, or nitrogen).
To achieve the required fundamental understanding of relevant phenomena
at length and time scales spanning ten orders of magnitude – from the
atom to the full‐scale process – NCCR Catalysis combines
multidisciplinary and cross-dimensional modes, connecting research from
chemistry, biotechnology, chemical and process engineering, and computer
science. The adoption of digital methods sets the foundations for
accelerating chemical discovery and the translation into competitive
plant‐ready technologies with tangible benefits to people and the
We are targeting talented candidates anywhere from recent Ph.D.
graduates to upper thirties. The deadline for submission is 28 February
We would really appreciate it if you could activate your network to
announce this unique opportunity as broadly as possible. We are happy to
receive recommendations of potential candidates to reach out to.
With best wishes from Zurich,
Javier and Gonzalo
