Re: Hello to all from a potential future resident of Switzerland

I've heard finding permanent positions for non-EU residents can be difficult. One other option might be to do another post-doc at one of the universities and that might give you some significant connections here that would help find that permanent position. Of course, that's only if you can't find something permanent without being in CH.

Yes, I heard that too. But it's easier if one stays in the country in a non-permanent position like you said. Even Ph.D. students are given some time to search for jobs, and at least in France, Pôle Emploi (job center) helps them and gives them employment benefits to any person. I indeed had a voluntury three months career break between my previous French and current US postdoc, and I got such benefit from Pôle Emploi.

I'm also looking for a postdoc in West Europe, as a stepping stone.
