Advice for finding accommodations while on a work contract

Hello,

I recently got a job offer in Basel, but it is only a contract for 4 months.
I really don't feel like taking the train 1.5 hours one way to get to work.
I heard it will be hard to find a wohnung because of the 4 month period.

Has anyone been in this situation or have advice on what else I could be looking for?

There are several short term let companys around, when we first arrived we used aw-immo.ch. They have furnished accomodation & speak English.
