Faculty Positions in Statistics or Computational Applied Mathematics

The School of Basic Sciences at the EPFL invites applications for up to two professorial positions. The search is open to all sub-domains of statistics and computational applied mathematics, but with a particular interest in applications to data sciences, life sciences, optimisation, control and inverse problems. Current EPFL-wide research initiatives include neuroscience and materials science, and applications from mathematicians and statisticians working in these areas are also encouraged.

We seek candidates with an outstanding research record and a strong commitment to excellence in teaching at all levels. While appointments are foreseen at the tenure-track assistant professor level, in exceptional cases an appointment at a more senior level may be considered.

Substantial start-up resources and research infrastructure will be available.

Applications should include a letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, publication list, concise statement of research and teaching interests, as well as the names and addresses (including email) of at least five referees and should be submitted via the website:


The evaluation process will start on November 1st, 2014, but later applications may also be considered.
Further enquiries should be made to:
