Professional development

Training and Workshops

UNIL provides internal and external support for training for academics, helping you to improve your teaching and research skills as well as to prepare for applications. Transferable (or “generic”) skills are not just for a non-academic career!

There's a wide range of support for you in terms of training and counseling:



For funding opportunities, please consult the UNIL Research Support website. See also the following page which presents the possibilities of SNSF grants, including Ambizione grants which aim to support young researchers who wish to conduct, manage and lead an independent project at a Swiss higher education institution.


For women researchers, the SNSF's PRIMA grants and the UNIL's "Tremplin" grants are intended to increase the number of women likely to submit an application for a professorship.
