Maternity/paternity leave replacement measure

The NCCR implements the maternity leave replacement measure whereby all its female scientific members (PhD students, postdocs, scientists, technicians and PIs), can be replaced during maternity leave by a technician and for a total period of 6 months. The technician will  be hired  full-time for that specific purpose. The time period allotted includes the 4 months maternity  leave (16 weeks) plus 2 months distributed as best suited before and/or after the maternity leave. 

The measure is also valid for future fathers: although not under paternity leave, male scientific members may want to work part-time or take a leave (unpaid) after the birth of their child, in either case for a maximum of 6 months. The NCCR is again able to cover the percentage of activity change by hiring a technician (% according to the leave that needs to be covered) for a maximum of 6 months.

Interested candidates should contact the NCCR Office to discuss details and its implementation within the limits of the allotted budget.
