Would you like to pursue your career at CSCS? You are welcome to apply to open positions published on our web pages through the official portal of ETH Zurich. Please note that we cannot accept spontaneous applications sent directly to HR or any staff member.

Our centre has a standard recruiting procedure with sequential interview steps:

    • Fill out all requested fields.
    • For us it is important to understand your motivation for seeking a given position and why you are the best candidate. We invite you to write a detailed motivation letter.
  • Applications are reviewed by a hiring committee. Please note that this step will need several weeks to complete. We try to give feedback as quickly as possible.

These are the steps you can expect:

  • Face-to-face interview in Lugano or Zurich. At this stage you will have a chance to see your future working environment and meet some possible future colleagues. CSCS will arrange the travel for your interview.
