Swiss National Science Foundation Starting Grant Professor at the Center for Integrative Genomics, University of Lausanne (CH)

The Center for Integrative Genomics (CIG) of the Faculty of Biology and Medicine at the University of Lausanne (UNIL) is seeking to host a new Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) Starting Grant Professor and encourages applications from outstanding researchers in the life sciences. Please consult eligibility criteria and find detailed application instructions at:

The CIG comprises 15 research groups. We actively promote careers of junior independent investigators, and current faculty include two Principal Investigators supported by early career programmes. The department is characterized by the diversity of research topics and approaches, but we are strongly grounded in the broad fields of genetics and genomics, from gene regulation to the molecular basis of complex traits. Our research employs a wide range of model systems and state-of-the-art experimental/analytical methods. More information about the CIG can be found here:

We encourage prospective candidates to apply by October 31, 2023 by submitting a CV (including the names of three referees) and a short project description (up to three pages) as a single PDF file to

Interviews will be conducted in November 2023 at the CIG. The CIG faculty will decide shortly after which candidate(s) will be supported to apply for an SNSF Starting Grant Professorship (submission deadline expected to be in early 2024).

SNSF Starting Grant recipients will receive support from the CIG in the form of research space, state-of-the-art facilities, access to technical platforms in genomics, proteomics and imaging, necessary animal housing, logistics and administrative support, as well as the possibility of an additional year’s salary beyond the five-year funding period of the grant.

UNIL is an equal opportunity and family-friendly employer committed to excellence through diversity.

Tenure Track Assistant Professor Behavioural Neuroscience, University of Groningen (NL)

The Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences is looking for an Assistant Professor, who can strengthen their position in the field of Behavioural Neuroscience, with an emphasis on neurobiological studies of behaviour under ecologically relevant conditions. The new staff member is expected to set up an independent research line within this field, complementary to the current neurobiological, evolutionary and ecological research in the GELIFES. The successful candidate is expected to take an integrative approach to address their research questions, and develop a strong research programme in Behavioural Neuroscience, focusing on the neurobiological mechanisms underlying complex behaviour in non-domesticated animal species under semi-natural conditions. With this profile the candidate is expected to develop a group that can successfully apply for competitive funding from e.g. topical programs of the Dutch Science Council and European funding schemes (e.g., related to neuropsychiatric disorders).

We offer you a full-time position and excellent career opportunities in our faculty’s career system Career Paths in Science and Engineering, including the perspective to get a permanent appointment (tenure) in 1-3 years and become Full Professor in approximately 10 years.
