Dear all,

the Forest Ecology group at ETH Zurich is seeking a PhD candidate for the
project "Treeline dynamics in the Swiss Alps: combining dendroecological
reconstructions of relict treelines with projections from a forest succession
model". The Forest Ecology group is a dynamic interdisciplinary research team
that examines both theoretical and applied questions in forest ecology using
a combination of empirical and modeling techniques. The overarching aim of
the group is to further our understanding of the structure and function of
forest ecosystems, with a particular focus on mountain areas such as the
European Alps.
The research is part of the EU COST Action SENSFOR ("Enhancing the resilience
capacity of SENSitive mountain FORest ecosystems under environmental
change"), which aims to investigate the drivers and extent of contemporary
and future environmental changes in European mountain forests, developing
methods for estimating their resilience and define consequences for society.

The detailed job advertisement and further information on the application
procedure can be found here:

The deadline for sending applications is 9 December 2013, evaluation of
applications will start shortly after this date. A potential start date of
the project is 1 January 2014.

Best regards,
Christof Bigler
