The Faculty of Science at the University of Zurich invites applications for a
Professorship in Pure Mathematics

with outstanding records in algebra, analysis, geometry or topology are particularly en-
couraged to apply. Applicants with a background in other relevant fields of pure mathe-
matics are also encouraged to apply.
The successful candidate is expected to develop an independent research group in pure
mathematics. Contributing to the existing undergraduate and graduate teaching efforts in
mathematics (in English or German) will form an integral part of the position. The success-
ful candidate should further contribute to the development of the institute and is expected
to acquire external funding. The position will be preferentially filled at the level of full pro-
fessor, but offers the possibility of open rank hiring as well. The position may be occupied
as a part-time or shared professorship.

for personnel and running expenses, and competitive start-up packages. Zurich’s scientific
environment includes a rich spectrum of research activities in mathematics, and provides
extensive opportunities for collaborations within the University and with the ETH Zurich.

sity and the city of Zurich also offer a stimulating cultural and family-friendly environment.

lum vitae; a vision statement of research and teaching interests. Applicants may provide
names and addresses of up to three potential referees (see for
