Two PhD positions in Quantitative Ecology

The research group of Prof. Dr. Thomas Crowther at the Institute of Integrative Biology, ETH Zurich, invites applications for
Two PhD positions in Quantitative Ecology
Our research focus is to generate an ecologically-informed knowledge of Earth system dynamics to improve our understanding of the carbon cycle and biodiversity in a changing planet (see the Crowther lab website for more information). The overall goals of the PhD are to examine how the structure of biological communities affects carbon cycling across scales. The research could focus on how the structure of the competitive network (e.g. hierarchical vs intransitive networks) determine the nature of the relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning, or similar questions at the intersection between community and ecosystem ecology. This will involve complex systems analysis, community modeling and empirical (observational or experimental) 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 skillsets to promote interdisciplinary research.
We look for a dynamic and highly motivated candidate who holds hold a Master’s degree in Ecology, Biostatistics, complex systems analysis or a related topic. All research will require strong quantitative/analytical stills, with considerable experience handling big datasets and generating models. The researcher should be driven to lead experimental/observational studies or meta-analyses that generate a fundamental understanding of how the structure of biological communities affects carbon cycling in natural ecosystems.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a 1-page statement of interest, a CV, and the contact details of two references by November 5th, 2017. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.

For further information about the application or group please contact Prof. Dr. Thomas Crowther by email at tom.crowther@usys.ethz.ch (no applications).
