Salary for Lab technician?


Can anyone tell me what a typical salary is for a lab/reserach technician is at EPFL in Lausanne? For someone with a Master's and a few years experience? I've seen a job offer with a salary that seemed good, but then I learned more about the high cost of living in Switzerland...

From a few things I've read, it looks like there's some sort of federal salary scale in Switzerland (I mean generally speaking. Not specific to techs)...is that right? Or am way off?

Thanks for any help!

Re: Salary for Lab technician?

Since you are in Canada - are you sure you have added value which cannot be found in Switzerland or the EU (exluding the new states)?

Your potential employer will have to prove that he cant find anyone in this first circle (CH and EU) before he can employ someone the second circle (RoW).

If you have the right EU pass its not an issue...
