Starting in 2023, UZH will create permanent positions for lecturers and senior lecturers, with a clear focus on either teaching or research. This step opens up attractive new career paths for highly qualified junior researchers. In addition, the university is improving conditions for its assistants and doctoral students by introducing uniform rules for a protected minimum period for their own research.
