Salary Expectation at PSI for Research Associate

Hello Everyone,

Glad to find this English forum and I have already found some very useful information here

Here is the thing: due to family reasons, I'm thinking about relocating to Switzerland in a few months. I just got an interview for a research associate position at PSI last week, and luckily I've got some positive feedback. They are scheduling another interview with me next week meeting meeting their HR, and I just have got a few questions as below:

1. What type of questions do I expect in this type of meeting with HR?

2. If they asked about my expected salary, how much I should suggest? Sorry I have never been to Switzerland before so I simply have no idea on this. As for myself, I have got a master degree in Engineering from a known university (but not in Switzerland), and I have got three years of consulting experience.

3. Will they refer to my last drawn salary? This is something I'm a bit concerned about, as Swizerland has higher cost of living than the current country I'm staying now.

4. I found out that PhD or PostDoc in Switzerland have some standard salary. But does it also apply to research position? or can be a reference for what I should expect? If it does, there is PhD 1-3 year, and PostDoc 1-3 year, which one should I refer to?

Thanks for reading the post, hope that i can get this opportunity and be there to meet some of your guys in the future
