All Swiss chemists and chemistry related scientists are invited to participate in the 2nd Employment Survey for European Chemists (ESEC2).
The survey, which is completely anonymous, is accessible at http://www.euchems.eu/esec2/ until 31 March 2017, and its main objective is to create a clear snapshot of the chemistry labour market. This snapshot will allow an analysis of educational offer and labour market needs, gender balance, salary differences, etc. As the situation of chemistry greatly differs from country to country (as the previous iteration of this survey shows - http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/chem.201501364/abstract) it is important that we gather enough specific information to define a Swiss specific country profile. Having such a level of detail will be in the best interest of employees, employers, and universities.
