Graduate Campus

We’re the central point of contact for UZH junior researchers with issues relating to their doctoral or postdoctoral studies. In personal consultations or one-to-one coaching sessions, we can address general concerns (i.e. not technical questions specific to your field) or discuss your work and working environment, employment status and career situation.
