Tenure Track Assistant Professor or a Tenured Associate Professor at EPFL

The School of Basic Sciences and the School of Engineering at EPFL seek to appoint a Tenure Track Assistant Professor or a Tenured Associate Professor jointly between the Institute of Mathematics and the Institute of Materials. Ideal candidates would have a strong interdisciplinary breadth rather than focus on specific subfields. Indicative fields of interest include, but are not restricted to, multi-scale modelling, topological properties of materials, soft matter, efficient and accurate electronic-structure algorithms, statistical mechanics of emergent phenomena, numerical methods for very high dimensional problems, theory of data-driven algorithms applied to materials discovery. Priority will be given to the overall originality and promise of the candidate’s work over any particular specialization area, and to the demonstrated attitude of the candidate to straddle the divide between rigorous mathematics and impactful applications to material modeling and theory. Candidates should hold a PhD and have an excellent record of scientific accomplishments, commensurate to the level of experience. In addition, commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate, master and doctoral levels is expected. Proficiency in French teaching is not required, but willingness to learn the language is expected.

Applications including a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, a statement of research (max. 3 pages) and teaching interests (max. 1 page), as well as the contact informationof at least three (for the rank of Assistant Professor) or five (for the rank of Associate Professor) references who are ready to supply a letter upon request, should be submitted in PDF format via https://facultyrecruiting.epfl.ch/position/34865152 by November 15 2021. Enquiries may be addressed to Co-Chairs of the Search Committee: Prof. Harm-Anton Klok, Director of the Institute of Materials (IMX), and Prof. Victor Panaretos Director of the Institute of Mathematics (MATH), (e-mail:This email address is being protected from spambots.

Call for nominations for the Rousseeuw Prize for Statistics

A new biennial prize has been created by the King Baudouin Foundation (https://www.kbs-frb.be/en/about-us), a large public utility foundation in Belgium. The prize is named after its sponsor, the statistician Peter J. Rousseeuw. The Rousseeuw Prize for Statistics will award pioneering work in statistical methodology.

The prize recognizes a statistical innovation, that is, an outstanding contribution or tool that has had significant impact and found wide application in statistical practice, with relevance to society. One of the goals is to promote awareness of the important role and intellectual content of statistics and its profound impact on human endeavors.

The prize will be awarded in even years, starting in 2022. The award amount is one million US dollars per prize, to be split over awardees if there are several, which it is hoped will typically be the case. The first award ceremony is scheduled for November 2022 at the University of Leuven, Belgium.
