Open position

Postdoc Position in Experimental Ecology or Macroecology 

The Crowther Lab at ETH Zürich is hiring a postdoctoral researcher with a specialty in experimental ecology or macroecology. The ideal candidate either uses laboratory-based system(s) to explore fundamental ecological questions about diversity, stability, and resilience of communities; or uses novel computational or statistical approaches to identify patterns that hold across scales, communities, or systems. This is a full-time position, with the potential for up to 4 years of funding. 

The research will be directly supervised by Dr. Daniel Maynard, an Oberassistent and Ambizione Fellow in the Crowther Lab. In addition to one’s area of expertise, the applicant should have a strong theoretical background and be well-versed in statistics and computational approaches.

As a global ecology lab, we value diversity and are passionate about building an inclusive and equitable working environment. Diversity is a critical component of a happy, healthy, and successful research group, and we are committed to making sure that every applicant receives the same consideration regardless of their identity.

To apply, please email Daniel Maynard (, and include a CV, a brief description of research interests and experience, and the names of two references. Please also feel free to email if you have any questions.
