The Department of Environmental Systems Science at ETH Zurich invites applications for a Full or Associate Professorship of Environmental Entomology.
The new Professor will be expected to develop an internationally recognized research program and to lead a research group in Environmental Entomology, with a strong focus on agroecosystems. His or her research will result in new tools and concepts to assess the positive and/or negative impact of insects on agroecosystems at the farm to landscape scale. An entomological collection is part of this professorship.
The successful candidate will be expected to teach undergraduate (in German or English) and graduate courses (in English) in the field of Entomology for students enrolled in agricultural, biological and environmental study programs. Furthermore, candidates should engage in extensive research and teaching collaborations with other professorships sharing similar interests at ETH Zurich, within the ETH domain and with other relevant institutions.
