taxes on trainee visa?

hello all!

i am an american citizen working short-term (3-4 months) in geneva on a trainee visa. as i don't speak french well enough to understand switzerland's own websites, i was hoping someone here will elucidate:

what taxes (swiss or US) am i liable for from my income while here in switzerland? the organization i work for is a swiss non-profit NGO.

thanks everyone...

You're liable both for Swiss and US taxation.
