Faculty position in Geo-Engineering (CO2 Sequestration)

EPFL's School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering seeks a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Geo-Engineering focusing on CO2 Sequestra­tion.

The future success of CO2 sequestration in deep, geologically secure formations, either on-shore or off-shore, remains un­certain due to numerous technical, engi­neering and scientific challenges. The challenges include, basic understanding of the physico-me­chanical and biogeochemical processes involved, the role of geological controls on long term storage, methods of locating sites and monitoring their per­formance, technology development, and combined storage and hydrocarbon re­covery.

We seek applications from highly quali­fied engineers and engineering scientists committed to a career in research and teaching. Applications are welcomed from all the disciplines pertinent to CO2 se­questration, including, but not limited to, geological, geo­chemical, environmental and civil engi­neering. The successful applicant will have potential for developing a research profile characte­rized by novel accomplishments, com­petitive grant funding and an interdiscipli­nary, collaborative vision. A broad vision of geo-engineering is sought, as is the ability to collaborate across disciplines.

Successful candidates are expected to ini­tiate independent research pro­grams and participate in undergra­duate and graduate teaching. Substantial start-up resources will be available. We offer inter­nationally competitive salaries and bene­fits.

Applications should include a résumé with a list of publications, a concise statement of re­search and teaching interests, and the names and addresses (including e-mail) of at least four referees. Appli­cations should be submitted electronically to 
professeurs.epfl.ch/page85628.html - Deadline: 15 May 2010, when formal screening of applications will begin.

Informal enquiries may be made to: byProfessor D. Andrew Barry - mailto: andrew.barry@epfl.ch

NEW-Professorship of SOIL COMPLEXITY

Faculty Position in Environmental Engineering

EPFL's School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC) has opened a search for a Full Professor of Soil Complexity.

Soil complexity is broadly defined, and applicants from all pertinent scientific backgrounds are encouraged. Example research domains: biogeochemical functioning and feedbacks with physical processes, soil as an organizing and organized part of the environment, robustness of complex soil systems to stresses such as hydrological manifestations of climate change, role of soil systems in the global CO2 budget, soil interactions with ecosystem functions and soil as a provider of ecosystem services.

We are seeking applications from highly qualified environmental engineers and scientists committed to a career in research and teaching, with a strong record of novel accomplishments, competitive grant funding and an interdisciplinary, collaborative vision. A broad range of activities is envisaged, as is the ability to collaborate across disciplines.

Successful candidates are expected to initiate independent, creative research programs and participate in undergraduate and graduate teaching. Substantial start-up resources will be available. We offer internationally competitive salaries and benefits.

Applications should include a résumé with a list of publications, a concise statement of research and teaching interests, and the names and addresses (including e-mail addresses) of at least five referees. Applications should be submitted electronically to

enac.epfl.ch/page24888-fr.html by 31 August 2009, when formal screening of applications will begin.

Encouragement Parrainage Travaux Maturité (Bac) Gymnasiale - délai 20 mai 2009

L’Académie suisse des sciences naturelles (SCNAT) cherche des expertes et des experts pour parrainer des travaux de maturité gymnasiale (baccalauréat) de jeunes gymnasiennes et gymnasiens, 4 demi-journées par année, dans tous les domaines des sciences naturelles (biologie, chimie, géosciences, informatique, mathématiques, physique).

L’objectif principal de l’initiative « Parrainage pour des travaux de maturité » est d’éveiller l’intérêt pour les professions scientifiques et de permettre à des gymnasiens de s’immerger dans le monde professionnel. La SCNAT leur offre la possibilité d’entrer en contact avec des scientifiques dans les hautes écoles ou l’industrie, d’utiliser des instruments de mesure spécialisés et de découvrir les coulisses de la recherche. Les jeunes investissent beaucoup dans leur travail de maturité (environ une demi-journée/semaine pendant une année) et ont un aperçu de cette manière des différentes possibilités de carrières dans les sciences naturelles.

Si vous souhaitez faire découvrir votre domaine à des jeunes motivés, merci de remplir le formulaire ci-joint et de nous le renvoyer au plus tard jusqu'au 20 mai 2009. Vous trouverez de plus amples informations sur le site Internet www.maturitywork.scnat.ch

Contact: Responsable Ressort Encouragement de la relève Mme Anne Jacob (Streif) - mailto: jacob@snat.ch
