Published in May this year to mark 10 years of the EVOLTREE network, "Evolution of Trees and Forest Communities" summarises the research group's infrastructures, resources and initiatives and features ten research papers that were published in the framework of EVOLTREE.
EVOLution of TREEs as drivers of terrestrial biodiversity.
A network of excellence linking four major disciplines, Ecology, Genetics, Genomics and Evolution, to address global issues that European forests are currently facing, such as environmental changes and the erosion of biodiversity.
The 2015-2018 consortium is made up of 32 research groups in 23 European countries, as well as Israel.
PostDoc in environmental genomics (80%)
Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL
You will analyze genomic and phenotypic data from a common-garden experiment with plants of Arabidopsis halleri originating from contrasting soils. After identifying nucleotide variation from next-generation sequencing data in collaboration with an expert bioinformatician, you will search for environment–genotype–phenotype associations and publish the results in an international scientific journal and possibly at a dedicated conference.
Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Ecology and Evolution in Forest Ecosystems
The Department of Environmental Systems Science at ETH Zurich
The assistant professor will develop and lead an internationally recognised research programme in “Ecology and Evolution in Forest Ecosystems” and is expected to integrate into research activities in related fields at ETH Zurich.
The closing date for applications is 31 October 2016
