The Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering (www.mavt.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position.
The successful candidate must demonstrate an outstanding record of research and teaching accomplishments in experimental fluid dynamics and show clear potential that he or she can establish an exceptional research programme with a significant experimental component in this field. Topical areas may range from micro-scales (micro-fluid dynamics, molecular fluid-surface interactions) to macro-systems (environmental and industrial flow problems) and broader engineering applications such as energy-related issues, with a strong link to fundamentals. Teaching duties include the participation in both introductory and advanced courses in fluid dynamics both for students in mechanical and process engineering and other non-engineering disciplines at the bachelor level (in German or English) and master level (in English). Apart from a PhD (or equivalent) degree in mechanical engineering or a closely related discipline, the new professor should have demonstrated the capability to work on interdisciplinary projects and to collaborate with professionals from other fields. Furthermore, the willingness and ability to interact with colleagues inside and outside of ETH Zurich is a prerequisite.
