The Fachverein AV@MAVT (in D-MAVT which was probably not so difficult to guess) just opened their new homepage. If you are also interested in using the AVETH RSS-Feed as a blog-roll, the URI is http://www.aveth.ethz.ch/blog/?feed=rss2
Join us tonight @6pm in HG D5.2 to get insight into AVETH activities and elect the new representatives! Apero is provided afterwards.

With a new department comes a new synergy: the scientific staff at the department of Health Sciences and Technology officially founded its department association HAS (HEST association of Scientific Staff) on 4 February. Only three days later, the AVETH board accepted tentatively the association as a Fachverein of AVETH in view of the upcoming general assembly of 21 February.
AVETH is wishing them all the best and looking forward to collaborating with them in future.
Each year, AVETH publishes its annual report, the AVETH News. The newest edition is now available and will be sent to all ETH scientific staff via mail within the next week. Have a look at the electronic version already now.
After already existing as a loose structure for some time, the scientific staff at the department of earth sciences officially founded its department association at the end of November 2012. Only a few days later, the association was tentatively accepted as a Fachverein of AVETH which has to be confirmed during the general assembly in early 2013.
AVETH is looking forward to working together with them in future.
More information can be found on the webseite of the departmental association at: http://www.erdw.ethz.ch/people/Mittelbau
This is the title of the professional development session, which is organised by the Optical Society (OSA) student chapter of ETH Zurich and EPFL. This session will be on 10 January 2013 at the ETH main Building (HG F1) from 1.00 to 2.30 p.m and is open to everyone without registration.
The lecture will be given by Jean-luc Doumont who is an inspiring presenter and very experienced in training academics.
Society in Science – The Branco Weiss Fellowship is supporting junior scientists with a stipend for up to five years at a location free of choice. Application deadline is February 1st, 2013. More information can be found on the website or in a YouTube video.
We have turned back the clock, the leaves have fallen, and that freak, but beautiful, snow has melted. What better to do on a grey and windy Thursday, but to drink with your AVETH friends, or make some new ones! We are going to move to a different district this month, Central is so September style anyway, and check out Devi’s Pearl Bar. With a name like that, how could we go wrong? Check it out on google maps before you head out, this one is located right by a train station, so an S-Bahn might be an awesome idea too, but don’t get the wrong idea, it is definitely not far!
See you there!

After a few years of inactivity, the department of Environmental Systems Science (D-USYS) now has a departmental association again. The new association VMUSYS has constituted itself a few weeks ago and is representing its members within the different commissions on departmental level.
During the last board meeting of AVETH, VMUSYS was accepted tentatively as a Fachverein of AVETH which has to be confirmed during the next general assembly in spring 2013.
AVETH is happy to have a new departmental association on board and is looking forward to working together with them in the future.
More information about VMUSYS can be found on their website: http://www.usys.ethz.ch/about/vmusys
