SNF Professorships, ERC Starting Grants, and other externally funded positions
The Institute hosts a number of externally funded staff holding personal grants from the Swiss National Science Foundation, the EC and ERC and other institutions. We welcome enquiries from interested individuals who would like to hold such awards at the Institute.
SNF Professors and holders of ERC Starting Grants are appointed as fixed-term Assistant Professors in the Department of Physics. As such, their candidature for these awards must be approved by the Department before the application is submitted. This process takes place twice a year, and interested individuals are advised to contact any of the Professors in the Institute as early as possible so that the necessary procedures can be followed. As a matter of policy, the ETH does not usually sponsor candidates for these two awards who will have passed their 36th birthday at the time of appointment.
