Re: Moving to Zurich

Heya!

Wow, thats for the quick replies!

Re: aout07
I'll be on CHF 87.5K. This is fairly standard, if not a higher than expected for a first post-doc according to www.myscience.ch. The only concern is paying my loans back in the UK. The economic crisis is really hurting a lot of poor ex/students.

Re: Halfasleep
That's a massive help, thank you. Maybe I should stick with streaming TV shows on the internet... although I might need a license for that too? I expected to pay more for quite a few things... so that's great! I have some money saved for a deposit (about 3 months in total). When I move over initially, I will be in a "guest house"... basically a student accommodation type place. When I get my own place I will need to ship my stuff over. Have you done that with your stuff? If so, did you just drive it over the boarder or did you use a company?

My research is aimed at understanding some of the biochemistry behind Alzheimer's disease. Trying to understand the functions of proteins under normal conditions and then how things go wrong in disease.

Thank you
