Welcome to the University of Basel! Located at the border triangle of Switzerland, Germany and France, Basel offers an excellent research environment for young research talents. The institutional reputation is closely linked to the performance of its junior researchers. Specifically, the postdoctoral period is possibly the most productive, but also the most challenging time in one`s entire career. Our aim is to support and encourage postdoctoral fellows and prepare them for future opportunities inside and outside academia.
Postdoc specific programs and formats are under construction.
Entry and arrival
Before coming to Switzerland or traveling to the Basel region, please check which entry formalities are required. Some official bureaucratic processes can take up to several weeks or months. More detailed information for foreign researchers are provided by the individual Swiss representation and from the State Secretariat for Migration SEM.
