Want to learn about biological, evolutionary and social interactions of species? To formulate and model species-interaction concepts? To cross disciplinary borders and share similarities and differences between social and natural sciences?

Four experts will guide you into the fascinating world of ecological, evolutionary and social networks of species and communities and help you to build and test computational models of species-interactions.

Mutualistic interactions: Ecology, Evolution and Conservation
Christoph Scheidegger, Biodiversity and Conservation Biology, Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL

Host-parasite interactions
Daniel Croll, Laboratory of Evolutionary Genetics, University of Neuchâtel

Mutualistic networks and Computational approaches to study co-evolution of networks
Miguel Fortuna, Department of Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Studies, University of Zürich

Ina Dietzsch, Institute of Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology, University of Basel

PhD students from all Swiss institutions of Higher Learning are most strongly encouraged to apply. Applications from Master students and Postdocs are also considered.
