The Aquatic Ecology Department is fortunate to have externally funded fellows contributing to our research and teaching environment. If you consider applying for an externally funded fellowship in our Department, please check your eligibility under http://www.snf.ch/en/funding/careers/Pages/default.aspx and contact a group leader whose research interests are close to yours. Note that in the case of Eccellenza Professorships, a formal affiliation with a University (ETH Zürich, University of Zürich) is required. To ensure that incoming fellows fit our research environment and can be accommodated appropriately, and to do the necessary paperwork, sufficient time is required. If you want to apply for Ambizione with Eco as a host please contact the Group Leader of your choice at least 3 months in advance of the submission deadline. Selected candidates will be invited to give a talk at our Department and discuss their research plans with us. Your formal expression of interest should come as a single PDF file including a complete CV, a motivation letter detailing why our Department is the right place for your research, an outline of the planned project (max. 2 pages), and the names and contact details of three references.
