The Department of Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (www.baug.ethz.ch) at
ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position.
The new professor will establish an internationally leading research group that broadly
addresses transportation and mobility demands. With a particular focus on the mutual
interactions between demands, infrastructure and operations, this research group should
contribute to a holistic understanding of transportation and mobility including multimodal
mobility systems, implications of emerging technologies, and truly sustainable mobility. The
candidate’s research is expected to be strongly interdisciplinary and to have significant impact
on the research field, policy-making, and industry. It should contribute to meet future
transportation needs in the face of the uncertainties resulting from continuing urbanization,
impacts of climate change, transformation of workplaces, digitalization, and further changes in
demographics, living spaces, businesses, and social life.
The successful candidate has a strong academic background in an area directly related to
transportation and mobility demand and is already internationally recognized for substantial
contributions to a holistic understanding of transportation and mobility. A demonstrated track
record of leading interdisciplinary collaborations, for example with spatial planning, urban
planning, infrastructure design, economics, policy-making, or social sciences is required.
Significant contributions to teaching at the undergraduate (in German or English) and
graduate (in English) level are expected.
