The AVETH postdoc+ team addresses the needs of the senior academic staff, from postdoc and up, in terms of career, networking, and politics at ETH.

Postdocs+ are in general at a later stage of career planning and personal life than doctoral students and thus have specific needs and interests within ETH.  AVETH Postdoc+ Team organizes a variety of networking events through out the year including “Wine & Cheese” events, a postdoc and senior scientist lunch, in addition to participating in the ETH orientation event for new staff. The idea of these networking events is to get to know fellow postdocs and senior scientists all over ETH.  Additionally, the team organizes several successful career and networking events. Our funding information event organized yearly targets late stage Doctoral Students, Postdocs and Senior Scientists interested in acquiring own funding. The event consists of talks providing an overview of Swiss and EU funding sources and the various supports provide by EU GrantsAccess and Office of Research in the funding application process. 

If you would like to participate in our activities, please join AVETH. If you have ideas for activities or if there are issues relevant to postdocs and senior scientific staff that you would like to discuss, please contact us. And finally, if you want to join the Postdoc Team, please contact us at
