Gender Equality

The NCCR TransCure is committed to implementing measures that facilitate increasing the number of women working in the field of membrane transport.

We are specifically focusing on the personal support of young female researchers interested in growing a scientific career in a number of ways:

  • We ensure equal opportunities in recruitment and we particularly encourage female scientists to apply for NCCR TransCure positions.
  • Mentoring is provided to female researchers who are interested in pursuing a scientific career.
  • Different annual soft skill workshops as well as an annual symposium are organized to encourage NCCR staff to interact with outstanding women in science as professional career and role models.
