About us

Get to know the people behind the PSI Career Center.

What does it take to keep employees happy, and is positive leadership the answer to the challenges we face in today's working environment? Thank you Christian Herbst for a great input on 'Positive Führung für eine positive Zukunft', and thanks to the mentors, mentees, and their line managers for your engagement for good leadership at PSI!

What a pleasure to discuss with this group of supervisors on their role of guiding PhDs and postdocs, tools and strategies for their daily business, and their wish to support their students' and postdocs' career development. Thank you for investing your time in our young researchers!

We had fun learning about the peculiarities of the Swiss, developing strategies for making friends, and diving into local history while tasting the famous Raclette and listening to folk music. Thanks everyone for joining!

A big thank you to Marc and Michèle for their insights into an academic career and how to enjoy it, and funding opportunities! Your inputs certainly help people decide on their career paths, and find the right financial support for their next step.

We had an inspiring and insightful day at DETEC learning what it takes to make sure our country runs smoothly, explore their diverse career perspectives, and hear the career stories of scientists now contributing to topics such as energy & innovation, circular economy, transport, and hazardous goods.

Thank you to all speakers for sharing their stories during the joint PPA and PSI Career Center event on Non-linear Career Paths! It was very interesting to hear about the career paths of some of our PSI colleagues, the challenges they faced, and how they got to their current positions.
