The Department of Molecular Life Sciences (MLS) at the University of Zurich wishes to offer a tenure-track assistant professorship to successful SNSF Professorial Fellowship or SNF Starting Grant applicants from outstanding researchers in the fields of molecular, cellular and computational biology. The MLS provides a lively, inclusive and diverse working environment where a wide range of cutting-edge approaches - including single-cell genomics, quantitative multi-scale imaging, and computational biology - are applied to investigate the molecular and cellular mechanisms of living systems. Current research topics include multi-cellular dynamics and organ differentiation, systems biology, and neuronal development and function. Of particular interest for this call are candidates who will be able to take a leading role in shaping the ‘BioVisionCenter’, a newly founded multi-institutional center that aims to have a transformative impact on molecular and biomedical life science research through multi-scale bioimage analysis and next generation computer vision approaches.
SNSF Professorial Fellowships, the replacement for the SNSF Eccellenza and Prima fellowships, are restricted to applicants with a connection to Switzerland (either Swiss nationality, a Swiss higher education degree or two years research experience in Switzerland). The submission deadline is 1st February 2023.https://www.snf.ch/en/U5Idhmrcn15Xuqty/news/prima-and-eccellenza-become-snsf-professorial-fellowships
SNSF Starting Grants, the replacement of ERC Starting grants, are open to researchers of any nationality and there is no requirement for a connection to Switzerland. The call for 2023 will be announced in November 2022. https://www.snf.ch/en/w728UqT1Yw256Mz2/funding/snsf-starting-grants-222.
Interested candidates should submit a description of research interests with clearly defined future aims (not exceeding five pages), a cover letter, CV and contact details of 3 referees by October 15th, 2022 directly to Angela Lloyd (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please contact Lucas Pelkmans (email@example.com) or Darren Gilmour (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information. Interviews will take place in November 2022, with the first round of interviews being held online.
