Hello to all from a potential future resident of Switzerland
 
Hello all,

I just wanted to introduce myself. Indian by origin, I finished my academic studies (doctorate in mathematics) in the US, and worked in academia for two years in France. Currently I'm in the US working as an academic (postdoctoral) researcher mathematical modeling of medical imaging or medical image computing. I'm hoping to move to the French speaking part of Switzerland with a permanent industrial or academic position, but keeping my options also open to Belgium and France too.

I think the jobs I'll apply to might fall in the "shortage jobs" category. I wonder if it's easier to get a permit in this category?

Also I'd appreciate if someone could tell me how to post here. I tried to add a new thread/post earlier, but apparently I can only do that in the introduction forum, if I'm not mistaken?

Thank you for your replies!

Hello and welcome. I believe you are more likely to find a job, and a better paying one at that, in a field related to your qualifications. Good luck.

Welcome to the forum. :)

I've no idea what a shortage job might be, but here's the hiring criteria for non-EU nationals which will apply to all positions.

I've heard finding permanent positions for non-EU residents can be difficult. One other option might be to do another post-doc at one of the universities and that might give you some significant connections here that would help find that permanent position. Of course, that's only if you can't find something permanent without being in CH.

Yes, I heard that too. But it's easier if one stays in the country in a non-permanent position like you said. Even Ph.D. students are given some time to search for jobs, and at least in France, Pôle Emploi (job center) helps them and gives them employment benefits to any person. I indeed had a voluntury three months career break between my previous French and current US postdoc, and I got such benefit from Pôle Emploi.

I'm also looking for a postdoc in West Europe, as a stepping stone.
