Elections of the delegates of the Junior Researchers

The general elections of the delegates of the UZH Junior Researchers to university and faculty committees as well as to committees at the seminars, institutes and clinics take place every two years. The first time general elections were held in June 2020 following the implementation of the new election regulations. By-elections elections take place every semester.

As of 2020, the elections are carried out electronically for the university and faculty committees using the e-voting tool of the representative bodies. The elections at the level of the institutes, seminars or clinics are carried out independently in election assemblies at the respective units.
