EVOLTREE is a European Research Group of 28 partners in 19 European countries (Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom), under the umbrella of the European Forest Institute (EFI), which maintains and provides the scientific community with research facilities, resources and training, aiming to:
- improve understanding of forest ecosystem structure, dynamics and processes by linking genomics, genetics, ecology and evolutionary studies
- promote the application of genetics and genomics in breeding and conservation activities, and in forestry operations
- continuously develop initiatives and projects for long-term research
- provide foresight documents and motivate scientific discussion.
The Department of Forest Genetics and Forest Tree Breeding at the der Georg-August-University of Göttingen is offering two postdoc positions starting as soon as possible:
- Research Associate (Postdoc) #1: The successful candidate will work in the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture funded project: 'Analysis of genetic, epigenetic and phenotypic variation in Douglas-fir natural populations and in German plantations' Post-doc at Georg-August-University Göttingen - Douglas-fir.
- Research Associate (Postdoc) #2: The successful candidate is expected to develop an independent cutting-edge research program in the field of population genomics of trees. A participation in undergraduate and graduate teaching is also expected Post-doc at Georg-August-University Göttingen - Population Genomics.
The Faculty of Environment and Natural Resources of the University of Freiburg invites applications for a Full Professorship (W3) for Forest Genetics in the Institute of Forest Sciences Full Professorship at University of Freiburg.

The European Forest Genetic Resources Programme (EUFORGEN) is a collaborative effort to promote conservation and sustainable use of forest genetic resources in Europe. EUFORGEN’s original mandate was set out in a 1990 resolution of the first Forest Europe conference, which was re-emphasised by the Ministerial Resolution 2 at the seventh conference in Madrid in 2015. The signatory countries committed to “continue pan-European collaboration on forest genetic resources through the European Forest Genetic Resources Programme (EUFORGEN).
