Professor of Animal Genetics

The Department of Environmental Systems Science (www.usys.ethz.ch<http://www.usys.ethz.ch>) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position.

At the Institute of Agricultural Science, the professorship will be responsible for developing a leading research and teaching program in animal genetics that focuses on an understanding of the genetic basis of important phenotypic traits in livestock. The professorship's main research topics may include, but are not limited to: (i) the use of QTL/association mapping, comparative genomics or other innovative methods to identify key genes or chromosomal regions underlying important traits of livestock species, (ii) the analysis of interactions between genes and the influence of environmental factors on gene activity underlying phenotypic traits; (iii) integrative approaches for matching animal genotype to different environments to improve food security and to allow for a resource efficient land use, and (iv) experimental approaches to understand the underlying causes of quantitative genetic variation.

The professorship has with several vacant positions, access to high-throughput genotyping facilities, and access to the currently built novel and excellently equipped field station "Research and Teaching Center Agrovet-Strickhof" suitable for animal phenotyping.

The new professor will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level courses (English) covering both basic and advanced animal genetics.
