PhD position summary/title: PhD student in polyploid evolution

Polyploids are organisms with doubled genomes. This is particularly common in plants, but has played an important role in the evolution of eukaryotes very broadly. Genome duplication itself affects core traits such as cell size, metabolism and other traits, and many of these represent challenges that must be overcome by evolution. In our lab, we study how polyploid lineages adapt to the very changes caused by genome duplication itself – including challenges such as cell size increase, perturbations in meiosis, etc.

PhD position summary/title: Experimental Petrology and Geochemistry

The Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology at the Department of Earth Sciences of ETH Zurich invites applications to undertake a fully funded PhD (4 years) on the timescales of magmatic and volcanic systems. Magmatic systems tend to incrementally grow over protracted periods of time. However, certain magmatic systems, including melt extraction zones, subvolcanic systems and associated ore deposits offer ideal conditions for the growth of minerals several orders of magnitude faster than traditional growth rates as a consequence of significant cooling- or decompression-driven undercooling. A promising method to constrain the growth rate of minerals relies on the in-situ analysis of stable isotopes, as these are expected to fractionate during rapid crystal growth.
