Professor of Mechanics

The Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering ( at the ETH Zurich invites applications for a full professorship in Mechanics.

The new professor is expected to establish a strong research program in solid mechanics, with an emphasis on time dependent phenomena. Possible research areas include non-smooth mechanical systems, fracture and high-rate deformation, time- and history-dependent mechanical behavior of materials, soft-materials, computational mechanics, and mechanics of multibody systems. The focus may be on theoretical or computational aspects and the research program is encouraged to include collaborations with the private sector. Teaching duties include introductory courses (German or English) and advanced courses (English) in mechanics, for students in Mechanical and Process Engineering, Civil Engineering, and Information Technology and Electrical Engineering.

The successful candidate must have a strong research background and excellent track record in Mechanical Engineering or related areas, with a PhD degree and subsequent research activities in mechanics. Furthermore, the candidate should have teaching experience.
