Juan Carlos has no particular reputation at present
PhD student working more than X hours/day

I am a PhD student and have a contract with a university for 60 % employment level in Zürich. I have been offered an interesting fully remote job of 8 Hours/day with flexible working hours, which I know is physically compatible with my current activities. However, I have been told that I am not allowed to take such a job due to legal regulations, because 8 Hours/day > 100 % - 60 % employment level. Is this true? Is there any way to request an exception to this rule providing a justification?

I doubt it. As a student you're allowed to work 15 hours per week during term time. 8 hours a day is going to add up to way over that.

Inform yourself about starting a company (even the usual JuanCarlos Gmbh) and do it through the company.
