Recruitment September 2020

Recruitment in September 2020

The interviews are scheduled for 2-4 September 2020 and will be held in ZOOM, whereby the admission interviews should take place on Wednesday, 2 September if possible. The “lab visits” (e.g. interviews with the groups) can be scheduled during all three days. Such a “lab visit” should consist of meetings with the PI and group members and may also include a virtual lab tour. This could be a short video sequence to show the facility or the location and some lab members.

Depending on the prevailing travel restrictions, the LSZGS will support the candidates in organizing one single journey to Zurich for a maximum stay of 3 days. Should several PIs wish to meet the applicant, the visits will have to be coordinated to avoid multiple trips. As this process may extend over several weeks, there won’t be a final match-making monitored by the LSZGS.

As a consequence of possible restrictions still in place we have cancelled the welcome talk as well as the studients' get together on Wednesday and Friday night.

For questions, please contact your program coordinator or the LSZGS mailto:gradschool@lifescience.uzh.ch.

After the admission interviews

As of Saturday, 5 September 2020 you can indicate in the join database, which candidates you would like to meet in person. If the candidate is also interested in meeting you, we will try to organize a visit as quickly as possible and ideally before 1 December 2020 (depending on prevailing travel restrictions to the Corona situation in the individual countries and in Switzerland). Should a candidate obtain invitations from several groups, we will coordinate the visits – travel costs and accommodation are only paid once for each applicant. After you have met the candidate(s) you can indicate in the join database or inform us by email in case you would like to make a job offer to someone.

It is also possible to make a job offer directly after the recruitment round without having met the candidate in person. However, we recommend giving the candidate the possibility to come to see you and your group members. You will be able to choose either option in the join database.
