When you start to look for a job in Switzerland, it is important to learn about the actions you need to take and the particular features of the Swiss labour market.
Other particularly useful resources include the English-language booklet produced by our colleagues at ETH Zurich to help students and young researchers looking for a job and the website Travailler en Suisse : rechercher un emploi en Suisse & vivre en Suisse [Working in Switzerland: looking for work and living in Switzerland].
The swissuniversities’ Carrière2 website provides a great deal of useful information and links on looking for working in higher education and research (in French).
Euraxess, the European network supporting mobility for researchers, also has a list of job offers available online.
UNIL vacancies are listed on a dedicated jobs portal.
The École de français langue étrangère provides free support for written and oral French skills for all UNIL staff who are not native French-speakers.
The classes, known as satellite courses, are also open free of charge to partners of teaching staff coming from abroad. Registration is obligatory.
