Short CV

Christoph Vorburger is a SNF Förderungsprofessor for Evolutionary Ecology at ETH Zürich and EAWAG since 1 October 2009.

Christoph Vorburger was born on 28 November 1971 in Altstätten, Switzerland. He studied Biology at the University of Zürich, where he also did his PhD with Prof. Uli Reyer at the Institute of Zoology. After his PhD he moved to Melbourne, Australia, to work as a postdoctoral research fellow with Dr. Paul Sunnucks at La Trobe University. In 2004 he returned to Zürich and was appointed as a Senior Research Associate (Oberassistent) at the Institute of Zoology of the University, from where he moved to ETH/EAWAG in 2009 after being awarded a Research Professorship (Förderungsprofessur) by the Swiss National Science Foundation.

Christoph Vorburger's research is concerned with the evolution of alternative reproductive modes (sexual vs. asexual reproduction) and with the study of biological interactions that maintain genetic diversity in natural populations. He is particularly interested in insect host-parasitoid interactions and how these interactions are mediated by the host's endosymbionts.
