About us


EURAXESS Switzerland is part of the European EURAXESS-Researchers in Motion Portal, a joint initiative of the European Commission and its members states and associated countries. It is co-funded by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation and swissuniversities. swissuniversities acts as the national EURAXESS Bridgehead Organisation and is the intermediate Body between the European Commission and the Swiss network.

EURAXESS Switzerland provides information and assistance to researchers who are coming to work in Switzerland both via this portal and at the 14 EURAXESS Centres in our national network. The portal contains practical information concerning professional and daily life, as well as information on job and funding opportunities. The services centres help researchers and their family to plan and organise their move to a foreign country, providing assistance in all matters related to mobility.

If you wish to search for job opportunities or information about living in another European country, please visit the national EURAXESS portals in more than 40 European partner countries and contact their EURAXESS Centres.
