| || |I follow your postings avidly and you are indeed exceptionally knowledgeable on these matters. However, one needs to define the appointment.
In the swiss system Professors are graded. Basically a C4 Prof. will be a divisional head and indeed if it is a foreign appointment will qualify for C- permit. However there are also C1-C3 professors that work under divisional heads and in these cases the contract appointment is the determinant.
A low graded professor may often find themselves in a 5 year contract appointment (the Uni's are moving away from permanent appointments to inject new blood on a cyclical basis).
So a Professor as i think we would know it is not the same in CHF... surprise
PS: If Darius had been appointed a C4 Prof. hats off to him. This means he is an exceptional academic internationally and/or comes to CHF with a very big research grant.

I don't wish to tell you that you are wrong because I do not know anything about the professorial grades - what I can tell you is that from a legal standpoint they are completly irrelevant.
I can further tell you that according to The ANAG Weisungen issued in Bern May 2006, it states on Page 65 §343.3 "that according to established practise ordinary and exceptional Professors, that teach at a university, an ETH or an IUHEI will be immediately given a C permit." translated from Nach ständiger Praxis wird ordentlichen und ausserordentlichen Professorinnen und Professoren
, die an einer Universität, an einer Eidgenössischen Technischen Hochschule oder am "Institut Universitaire des Hautes Etudes Internationales" (IUHEI) unterrichten, die Niederlassungsbewilligung sofort erteil.
It makes no difference what grade the professors are as long as they make the criteria of being a professor at one of the three named institutional types. If you are a professor at a FH then the rules are slightly different as this is not such a prestigious establishment, but they still receive a C permit if requested.
Given the above, I must ask where have you this information? Who has told you it?
