Professorships

Main content

All professorships at the D-GESS are independent teaching and research units that have a clear methodological and topical relevance for ETH Zurich’s focus on the natural sciences and technology. At present, 23 professors are engaged in research and teaching at D-GESS. They focus on the four core areas of Behavior (behavioral science), Governance (political science), Knowledge (humanities) and Law & Economics.
