Tenure-track Assistant Professorships in Statistical Genetics and Bioinformatics

WorkplaceLausanne, Lake Geneva region, Switzerland
Occupation rate

The Faculty of Life Science of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) seeks a tenure track Assistant Professor in the field of Statistical Genetics and Bioinformatics.


The open faculty position is offered in an environment of translational biomedical research, rich for seeking deeper understanding of integrative (patho) physiological mechanisms contributing to the development of complex diseases, with as ultimate goal the development of novel preventive and therapeutic approaches. The Faculty of Life Sciences has recently opened the Center of PhenoGenomics, a state-of-the-art platform that combines the capacity to generate and analyze mouse models of disease in a high throughput fashion. The Faculty of Life Sciences furthermore fosters interactions with other relevant domains of the EPFL, such as the Faculty of Basic Sciences (mathematics, statistics) and of Information and Communication Technologies. In addition close ties exist with relevant clinical departments at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Vaudois (CHUV), with the Faculty of Biology and Medicine of the University of Lausanne, and with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics.


The candidate should be trained in statistical genetics and in bioinformatics. Skills in clinical genetics as applied to mouse or human disease models, biomedical informatics, and databases /programming would be a plus.

He/she is expected to develop an independent and creative research program that will improve the analysis of large data sets derived from clinical, genetic, genomic, proteomic, and phenomic analyses of genetically engineered mouse models, of mouse genetic reference populations, and of human populations. Successful candidates will participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching.
