Fully-funded PhD Position at ETH Zurich: Studying the climate resilience of apple production systems in Switzerland
Together with the Swiss Fruit Association, Agroscope, and the Environmental Policy Lab at ETH Zurich, our research group was awarded funding from the RESPONSE Doctoral Programme for a PhD (doctoral student) position to study the climate resilience of apple production systems in Switzerland.
We are looking for a motivated student with interdisciplinary training in socioeconomic, environmental, or plant sciences; or has concentrated training in one of those areas and would like to complement those skills going forward.

The three-year fellowship will be based in Zurich, with a four-month internship at the Swiss Fruit Association in nearby Zug.
