*** this position has been closed. ***

The Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) is one of the most dynamic university campuses in Europe and ranks among the top 20 universities worldwide. The EPFL employs 6,000 people supporting the three main missions of the institutions: education, research and innovation. The EPFL campus offers an exceptional working environment at the heart of a community of 16,000 people, including over 10,000 students and 3,500 researchers from 120 different countries.

Your mission:

The Institute of Mathematics at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) invites applications for full-time Bernoulli Instructorships in all areas of mathematics.

We particularly encourage applicants from the general areas of algebraic structures, analysis, and probability to apply.

Your Profile:

Bernoulli Instructors are expected to teach courses in their broader domain at all levels. The initial teaching load is light, corresponding to half the teaching load of regular faculty, and gradually progresses to the latter.

Benroulli Instructors are expected to develop and sustain an excellent independent research program. They are welcome to collaborate and encouraged to interact with members of the Institute, but they maintain full research independence. They are offered travel support.

 Bernoulli Instructors are expected to be able to teach courses in French or English.

 The EPFL actively aims to increase the presence of women amongst its employees, and female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

We offer:

The term of the position is two years, with the possibility of extension for another two years. EPFL salaries for instructors are highly competitive. In addition, instructors receive a substantial yearly budget for travel expenses and other expenditures.


For further information, please contact Ms Carole Weissenberger, Secretary of the Institute of Mathematics (carole.weissenberger@epfl.ch) and also see https://www.epfl.ch/schools/sb/research/math/bernoulli-instructors/

Applications include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, research plan, teaching record, and the names and addresses of at least three references (to be included in cover letter or in the CV).

 Application files should be submitted in PDF format and uploaded via the link below by November 30, 2022:
