The guidelines concerning the employment for spouses, life partners and relatives at ETHZ apply for PSI analogiously: Guidelines Dual Career ETHZ
Since the revision of the Personnel Ordinance 2020 employment for spouses, partners and relatives is regulated in Art. 53a111, 2: It is ensured that "employees who are married to each other, living in a partnership, closely related or related by marriage are employed so that they do not work directly together or are in a direct subordinate relationship. Anyone in such a relationship must report that fact to his or her supervisor." (translated). See ETH Domain Personnel Ordinance (only available in German, Italian and French)
