1. 2 Post-Doctoral Researchers in Quantitative Ecology at ETH Zürich

Two postdoctoral fellowships in Global Ecosystem Modeling.


The Crowther lab at ETH Zurich (starting on October 1st 2017) are seeking 2 postdoctoral positions to conduct competitive research in quantitative ecosystem ecology at a global scale. The research will aim to improve our understanding of how the physiology or composition of biological communities affects ecosystem functioning (primarily carbon cycling) at a global scale. We seek ecologists who are familiar with Earth System Models that will enable them to identify critical uncertainties that can be addressed through experimental or observational research.


Consistently ranked in the top 10 universities in the world, ETH Zurich provides an ideal location to perform this quantitative research. The Department of Environmental Systems Science boasts a highly interdisciplinary group of world-leading experts that provide a good opportunity for collaboration. This will be reflected in this lab, which will bring together experts with highly different skill sets to promote interdisciplinary research.
