Working part time for both a Swiss employer and a US employer separately

Hello all,

I am faced with a rather messy situation. I am a US citizen in Switzerland as a PhD student, with a work contract and a B permit. My PhD will conclude soon, but my work contract is planned to be extended beyond that time (I think this does not affect my contract or permit type).

Here's where it gets ugly... it is planned to change my contract in Switzerland to part time, while also receiving a part time contract from a US employer as a "visiting scientist". Actually, I would only visit a few times for a few weeks each, and otherwise my duties would be fulfilled remotely - while maintaining all aspects of my Swiss residency and employment.

Is there any chance at all that this will be accepted? Or is there some slightly different way this could be handled?

I would be very thankful to hear any advice or info from anyone who has dealt with any even slightly related scenarios, or has any knowledge on the topic.
