Organisation's Logo
University of Lausanne

The Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment (FGSE) of the University of Lausanne invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in Metamorphic processes, to be based at the Institute of Earth Sciences (ISTE).

We seek candidates who conduct innovative, interdisciplinary, and quantitative investigations of metamorphic processes by combining field observations with geological and/or geochemical data.

Research topics of interest include, but are not limited to, fluid-rock interaction, rates of metamorphic processes, coupling of reactions with rock deformation, ab initio calculations, mass- and heat transport, linking metamorphic processes to orogenic systems.

This position offers numerous opportunities for internal collaborations in neighbouring fields such as geodynamics, geophysics, hydrology, (bio-) geochemistry and igneous petrology.

The position involves teaching, mainly in metamorphic petrology and field-based courses at the bachelor and master level.


We will consider outstanding candidates for direct appointment at the Associate Professor level, particularly if this corresponds with our equal opportunity objectives.

Starting date: 1st of August, 2023 (or to be agreed upon)
Contract length: 2 years renewable twice (6 years). Tenure and promotion to the rank of Associate Professor expected after 5-6 years, leading to further contracts renewable every 6 years.
Activity rate: 100 % (or to be agreed upon)


A PhD in Earth Sciences at the date of appointment is required and postdoctoral experience is expected.

Candidates must demonstrate a capacity to undertake high quality research, to obtain research funding, and to publish in peer-reviewed international research journals.

A demonstrated potential for teaching and for supervising master and doctoral theses is required.

A good command of French and English is preferable. If French is not the native language, teaching ability in French has to be acquired within two years of the appointment.
