The Geobotanical Institute of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology
(ETHZ), in collaboration with the Wildlife Ecology Group of The Swiss
Federal Research Institute WSL offers a PhD position (plant ecology,
grazing in African savanna). The successful candidate will participate
in an ongoing project in northeastern Tanzania that studies
plant-herbivore interactions in a savanna ecosystem which is being
recolonised by native ungulate herbivores after a long history of cattle
grazing. The dissertation will focus on vegetation structure,
composition and quality, employing an experimental approach, and will
also include modelling of nutrient fluxes. It will be tightly linked to
a second dissertation that addresses the spatial ecology of the
recolonising ungulates. The position requires a strong background in
plant ecology, an interest in multidisciplinary work, some modelling
experience, and skills in lab work. The candidate must be willing to
work and live for extended periods under very simple field conditions,
and is expected to collaborate closely with the zoologist in the
project. This position is fixed-term for three years, work starting on
January 1, 2005. Please send your complete application, including a
brief outline of your motivation and former field experience to Prof.
