Balancing family and work
Kidney.CH is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage all scientists with families to submit applications for positions within the NCCR. In general, career breaks due to parental leave are not seen as a disadvantage and typical age limits (e.g ~40 years in the case for an assistant professorship) will not apply for women or men having had a parental leave.
We are committed to create whenever possible the necessary structures (e.g. meeting structures, flexible work hours) to support balancing family responsibilities.
Further, we offer following financial support:
This SNSF grant allows an extending part-time employment, or covering child care costs, so that there is no, or only a minimal delay in research work.
Applications must be made in writing to the NCCR management office, using the specific application form.
The managing team (NCCR director, vice-director and project manager) plus the representative(s) from Education & Training and Advancement of Women approve or disapprove candidate applications.
Child care support
In line with Marie Heim Voegtlin (MHV) guidelines, the NCCR Kidney.CH provides financial support for child care services.
Please submit the application form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maternity leave compensation
This Kidney.CH grant compensates the financial gap, which occurs for Kidney.CH groups with a maternity leave of a female scientists. It reimburses the part of the salary, which is not covered by the insurance and therewith supports the groups to continue their projects.
