The Plant Ecology Research Laboratory PERL in the Institute of Environmental Engineering at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland) is offering a PhD position in plant ecophysiology starting in April 2022.
PERL studies the impact of plant biodiversity loss on ecosystem functions and services and the physiological processes involved in plant responses to climatic stress. The PhD will work closely with collaborators from EPFL and from the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL) on improving our understanding of heat and drought impacts on tree physiological processes, specifically the role of tree species interactions on the carbon cycle (i.e., whole tree-level photosynthesis and respiration). The work’s overall objective will be to unravel how forest structure and tree species composition modulate canopy-level carbon exchange during extreme climatic events. The work will be conducted in several networks of permanent forest stands in natural and mature forests as well as in open-top chambers.
The applicant should have a background in forest ecology, plant physiology, ecophysiology, ecological modeling or related fields. Salary is following the ETH Domain salary system. To apply, please send a CV and a cover letter with a brief description of future research goals to email@example.com . We will start looking at applications after December 1st , 2022.
