EVENT REPORT: ASST D-GESS Scientific Staff Christmas Party 2017: Thursday 14 December 2017

Thank you all for joining this year’s ASST DGESS Scientific Staff Christmas Party, which took place on 14 December 2017 at the GESS Lounge! The questions were tough as always, perhaps even tougher – but this couldn’t stop the highly engaged teams from giving their best and conquering awesome prices!

We are happy to announce that representative positions for the scientific staff at DGESS became available!

Joining our team brings a lot of fun, meeting and cooperating with new people from all around ETH, insight into departmental politics at the DGESS and the ETH, and various activities that you can choose from.

If you are interested in joining us, be advised that being part of our board…

…can involve any tasks that you are interested in (e.g., political affairs, social affairs, financial administration, website administration,…)

…does not necessarily mean a lot of time investment (we can adapt our activities to personal workload and interests)

…brings a lot of fun and interesting experiences!

Anyone from future doctoral students to experienced postdocs is welcome!

If you are interested in department or ETH politics, meeting colleagues and nice new people, planning social, cultural, or academic events, or becoming active in teaching commissions, we have the following options for you:

  • Board Member of the Association of Scientific Staff (ASST), the representative association for all doctoral students, postdocs, and senior researchers at DGESS.
  • Representative in the DGESS Department Conference, the highest body of the department which has meetings twice a semester.
  • Representative in teaching commissions for studies offered at DGESS.

In case you are interested or would like further information, please write us an email. We are looking forward to hear from you!
