Assistant Professor (Tenure Track) of Landscape Ecology

The Department of Environmental Systems Science (www.usys.ethz.ch<http://www.usys.ethz.ch>) at ETH Zurich and the Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL (www.wsl.ch<http://www.wsl.ch>) invite applications for an assistant professor position to lead a research group in Landscape Ecology. The professorship will be established as a joint position between ETH Zurich and WSL. The new colleague will be expected to engage in extensive research collaborations with those professorships and research groups at ETH Zurich and WSL that share similar interests, and with other relevant institutions both nationally and internationally. The overall goal of this professorship will be to develop an integrative approach that focuses on the temporal and spatial interactions between processes such as competition, animal and plant dispersal, natural disturbance dynamics and the drivers of environmental change, so as to develop a predictive understanding of how landscape patterns emerge.

The new professor will develop an internationally recognized research program focusing on the interactions between the spatial patterns of land cover and ecological processes, with implications for the provision of multiple ecosystem services. His or her research will contribute to the development of new concepts to assess, predict and manage landscape dynamics at regional scales over decades to centuries.The new professor will be expected to teach undergraduate level courses (German or English) and graduate level courses (English).

This assistant professorship has been established to promote the careers of younger scientists. The initial appointment is for four years with the possibility of renewal for an additional two-year period and promotion to a permanent position.
