Coaching & Counseling

Graduate Campus serves as a central point of contact for junior researchers at UZH for questions and concerns relating to the doctoral and postdoctoral qualification phases.

Are you a doctoral or postdoctoral researcher at UZH and have a non-specific concern or would you like a reflection on your work, working environment, employment or career?

Individual counseling

Doctoral and postdoctoral researchers can contact Graduate Campus office via email for a personal consultation. We ask that you provide a clear description of your concerns, your institute affiliation and a telephone number where we can reach you if necessary. 

In addition, there is the possibility of taking advantage of individual counseling. The Graduate Campus works with proven coaches who have a wide range of experience, particularly in the field of science.

All enquiries are treated confidentially and are not made accessible to third parties.
