Re: Postdoc position in Roche pRED

Yes, that would be the case. This from the Foreign Nationals Act:

"Members of the family of a short stay (L) permit holder (art. 26 OASA) do not have a right to gainful employment. The gainful activity is subject to authorization.

On admission, a request by the employer respecting the pay and conditions of employment customary in the locality and in the branch must be made. In addition, members of the family of a short stay permit holder (art. 26OASA) must have professional qualifications (personal qualifications, Art. 23 AuG).

The possibility of gainful employment for family members is related, according to art. OASA 26 and 27, to the duration of the authorization of the person granted family reunification. If the residence permit of the spouse is not renewed, the members of his family cannot claim a right to pursue their gainful employment (art.6, para. 2, OASA).

By constrast, members of the family of a holder of a residence (B) permit do not have a right to gainful employment. However, given the general objectives of the Foreign Nationals Act (better integration of the foreign population), the legislature decided not to submit gainful employment authorization."

If she doesn't have a university degree then she wouldn't be able to look for work here, the permit would be for residence purposes only. If she has a degree then if she can find an employer to make an application on her behalf and they meet the conditions laid out, then the work part would be added to her permit. If you get a B permit then all she needs to do is notify the authorities that she's found a job as B dependent holders require no authorisation to be able to work.

What I'm not sure of is whether a PostDoc gives you student permit or an ordinary one. If student then that will probably be a B permit. The problem is the quota limit for non-EU nationals, there are only 2,500 B permits issued per year, 4,000 L's, so the likelihood of you getting an L is much higher.
