2.5% inflation adjustment for doctoral students starting March 1st, 2023
Today, 23.02.2023, the ETH Schulleitung decided that the salary rates of doctoral students (and scientific assistants I) will be increased by the inflation adjustment of 2.5% as of March 1, 2023, based on the decision of the SNSF.
This is great news for doctoral students! AVETH will continue discussions with all responsible parties with the aim of ensuring:
– Doctoral student salaries are henceforth always adjusted for inflation in step with any adjustments made for other ETH staff members.
– Doctoral student salaries are adjusted to reflect all of the inflation since the last inflation adjustment in 2014.
– The gap between salary levels 1 and 5 is reduced (by bringing the lower levels up).
