We seek to appoint a lecturer on reaction engineering and catalysis to teach undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The primary responsibility will be to contribute to the preparation and delivery of the Heterogeneous Reaction Engineering course, which is a core course in the Chemical Engineering Bachelor and an elective in the Master in Process Engineering. In this course, students learn fundamental principles of heterogeneous reactions and develop the necessary skills for the selection and design of various types of reactors. The content includes models for fluid-fluid and fluid-solid reactions; kinetics of surface reactions; mass and heat transfer phenomena and their impact on catalyst effectiveness; catalyst deactivation; reactor designs and testing methods. The course develops in English through regular lectures and exercises on each core topic during the spring semester.
In this role, your main tasks will be:
Delivery of teaching is expected to be face-to-face. This position is linked to a part-time contract with a duration of 2 years that can be extended. You will be working under the direction of Prof. Pérez-Ramírez, Full Professor of Catalysis Engineering at ETH Zurich, and in collaboration with other colleagues within the Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences and across other departments.
You have a Ph.D. in an engineering field with a strong interest in teaching and excellent command of English. A proactive, team-oriented mindset, excellent organizational and interpersonal skills, and the ability to communicate through different backgrounds and cultures are also core requirements. You have experience teaching at the undergraduate/postgraduate levels and are ideally familiar with course administration at ETH Zurich. Research experience is also valued.
We offer flexible working conditions and good social benefits in line with the standards of ETH Zurich. The start date will be the earliest possible for the candidate. Those applications not fulfilling core requirements will not be considered further.
We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents:
