Women in Science

The Faculty of Law aims to increase the proportion of women consistently. Law is a discipline that inspires men and women equally and offers a rewarding career. This is reflected namely in the large number of students enrolled at the Faculty of Law and the almost balanced distribution by gender. The proportion of female students currently stands at ca. 59%, while the proportion of female PhD candidates is almost 46%. However, there is still an imbalance in the numbers of men and women at habilitation and professorial level. At present, 17 female professors are carrying out research and teaching full-time at the Faculty of Law, of whom six are assistant professors. This equates to 30% of the staff. In addition, five female professors are working part-time as titular professors at the Faculty of Law.

Offers for women in Science

At the University of Zurich, there are targeted offers for women in science. In addition to events on equal opportunities at Swiss universities, there is the Marie Heim-Vögtlin support program, which is specifically aimed at female doctoral and post-doctoral students.
