The Bringing Materials to Life consortium, at the interface of biology, chemistry and materials science, studies the material properties of biological condensates and aims to unravel fundamental mechanisms and properties underlying living matter. We develop theory and physical methods to understand how emerging material properties of intracellular structures contribute to the function, dynamics and plasticity of cells. In parallel, we study how living organisms process materials to inspire a new generation of sustainable and active engineered materials.
The consortium headed by Prof. Dr. Paola Picotti, Prof. Dr. Eric Dufresne, and Prof. Dr. Yves Barral, invites applications for a Scientific Officer.
The tasks of the Scientific Officer will include:
The successful candidate will have a PhD (doctorate) in molecular cell biology, biochemistry, material sciences, or related fields, and at least two years experience in academia or industry as a postdoc or equivalent. Experience in scientific writing, project management, coordination, and fundraising is essential. He/she should have an independent, pragmatic, collaborative, pro-active, organized and self-motivated working style, strong communication and interpersonal skills. Flexibility and interest in team-oriented work are essential. Fluency in English, excellent English grammar skills and proficiency in Microsoft tools are also a must. Knowledge of German is helpful, but not a strict requirement. The successful candidate will work at the Hönggerberg campus of ETH Zurich, a world-leading institution in research and teaching. We offer an interesting and versatile position in an international team and associated with modern laboratories dedicated to research in the fields of basic and systems biology and material sciences. The position is available immediately or by arrangement and the percentage of workload is 60%.
We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents:
Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
Questions regarding the position should be directed to Prof. Dr. Paola Picotti (email@example.com) or to Prof. Dr. Eric Dufresne (firstname.lastname@example.org) by email (no direct applications).
