The Department of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences (www.gess.ethz.ch)

at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned professorship. We are looking for an internationally established expert with an excellent publication track record and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research.

including areas such as big data, artificial intelligence, and automation are of particular interest.

The successful candidate is expected to deliver courses in advanced statistics for social scientists as well as compulsory elective courses for the critical thinking initiative and the Institute of Science, Technology, and Policy (www.istp.ethz.ch). The new professor will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (in German or English) and graduate level courses (in English).
