Post-Doc evolutionary modelling and spatial genetics

The Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL is part of the ETH Domain. Approximately 500 people work on topics related to the sustainable use and protection of the environment and on an integrated approach to handling natural hazards. The Research Unit Land Use Dynamics investigates pattern and processes of land use change and is involved in a larger research project of the center of competence "Environment and Sustainability" at ETH Zurich. For this project we are looking for a Post-Doc evolutionary modelling and spatial genetics.

You will develop theoretical models of the spatial distribution of organisms; evaluate the patterns with genetic methods and field data; investigate the effects of landscape fragmentation on populations; improve existing empirical models and publish your results in international peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Your qualifications: PhD in Evolutionary/Environmental Sciences or Geography, sound evolutionary understanding, strong background and experience in the development and application of theoretical and empirical evolutionary models, experience in GIS (ArcGIS), statistics (SAS, R) as well as spatial analysis, experienced in literature search, development of concepts, programming and data analysis. You are motivated, innovative and a teamplayer.

Interested? Please send your complete application and list of publications, using reference number 548 to Mrs. Monika Huber, Human Resources WSL, Zuercherstrasse 111, CH-8903 Birmensdorf, Switzerland.

Prof. Dr. F. Kienast, Tel. +41-44 739 23 66, will be happy to answer any questions or offer further information.
