The School of Life Sciences of EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position in the field of Cancer Chemical / Bio-engineering.
This search is part of major initiatives in the Lake Geneva region to study the mechanisms of cancer development and progression with an application to therapy, using and developing advanced technologies that bridges the fields of chemistry, biology and engineering to study fundamental processes in cancer and or identify novel therapeutic targets and drugs to treat cancer.

The successful candidate will: join the faculty of the Swiss Institute for Experimental Cancer Research (ISREC) http://isrec.epfl.ch; develop an independent internationally prominent research program in the broad domain of chemical biology and bio-engineering of cancer and its potential therapeutic applications; commit to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels; and supervise PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. Candidates may work in any cancer-related area, including development of chemical probes that interfere with or label growth controlling proteins, engineering of defined functionalized matrices to study patient derived tumoroids, or in computational and structural biology with the aim to transform large numbers of un-druggable human proteins into pharmacological targets, tumor evolution, and tumor escape mechanisms.
