Our salaries are based on the system used for Bern’s cantonal staff. The job requirements, together with the professional experience and age of the person assuming the job, are taken into account to determine a fair salary. Annual salary increases depend on individual workplace performance and the funds available. The social benefits offered by the University of Bern are within the scope given by law. This includes all standard pension benefits, a daily sickness benefits insurance and an accident insurance that also covers non-occupational incidents.
