We are searching for three highly motivated doctoral students to undertake multidisciplinary research on the connections between tectonics, landscape evolution and the formation of biodiversity. Positions are in the Earth Surface Dynamics Group under the supervision of Prof. Sean Willett in the Department of Earth Sciences at ETH Zurich.
These doctoral positions are part of a broader effort to explore and model the connections between landscape evolution and biological speciation and diversification over geological timescales. Collaborators within the Department of Environmental Sciences will also be involved in the project. The fundamental question to be addressed is how does tectonics affect physical geography or other landscape factors defining habitat and how does the change in those parameters over space and time impact speciation, species dispersal and biodiversity. Three specific case studies will be investigated to explore these questions.
Candidates should have a Master’s degree in Earth Science or closely related field such as Environmental Sciences, Ecology or Geophysics and a demonstrated ability to work and communicate effectively across disciplines. Candidates should have a strong quantitative background including experience with numerical modeling or other quantitative analysis. Experience with specific techniques as described under the individual projects will be regarded positively, but is not necessary.
