Early career researchers with family


With the 120%-Care-Grant, the University of Bern is introducing a new support measure for postdocs with care responsibilities. The Care-Grant is intended to contribute to a better work-life balance for young researchers. It enables postdocs who are employed 80%-100% to reduce their employment level to at least 60% for a maximum of 12 months and to hire a support person with an overlapping workload.
