Professor of Plant Disease Dynamics, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

The Department of Environmental Systems Science ( at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position.

The ideal candidate centers their research on the organismal biology of plant-pathogen interactions as related to global environmental problems (e.g., emerging and introduced plant diseases, biodiversity change) and solutions (e.g., ecosystem management, sustainable agriculture). Example topics include (but are not limited to): the drivers of emerging plant diseases (e.g., of agricultural crops, trees, and other plants of concern) and/or the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of plant-pathogen dynamics in species or ecosystems of interest (e.g., agricultural systems, forest ecosystems). Candidates applying integrative toolboxes, by combining field and greenhouse experiments or observations, mathematical modelling, and state-of-the-art tools (e.g., genomics, phenotyping, eDNA), would be a perfect fit for the position. The future professor is invited to take advantage of the opportunities for collaboration offered by the department, where environmental problems and the development of sustainable solutions are central motivators of research by all research groups.

Application deadline: 15 September 2024
