Oferta compartida por Nuria

The Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape ResearchWSL is part of the ETH Domain. Approximately 600 people work on the sustainable use and protection of the environment and on the handling of natural hazards.

The Research Unit Biodiversity and Conservation Biology studies the diversity of life in its various forms, from genetic diversity to the diversity of species and ecosystems as well as their interactions. In the framework of the ERC Consolidator Grant, MyGardenOfTrees, the Research Group Evolutionary Genetics is looking from April 1th or by arrangement, for a period of 18 months for a project coordinator in communication and forest science (60-80%).

MyGardenOfTrees is aimed at understanding how genes and the environment shape together the survival and growth of two forest tree species, European beech and silver fir. Using a species range-wide participatory science experiment, this project will reveal major patterns and drivers of adaptation and build a predictive model for selecting optimal seed sources. The project coordinator will develop and manage a participant network of foresters, manage an international team of other project coordinators, take part in the development of field protocols and in the development/maintenance of the project website.

Ideal candidates hold an MSc degree, and have studied or have experience in science communication, project management and forest sciences (for example, forest management, ecology or genetics). We search for a dynamic person with excellent communication skills, who can effectively communicate with foresters, and has a written and oral fluency in English and German. Interest in participatory science approaches is essential. Experience in database management, statistical analysis, web design and development, grant writing, and knowledge of an additional European language will be advantageous for this position.
