Professional associations

On this page, you will find information on the Mittelbau (intermediate faculty and staff) at the Faculty of Science. The Mittelbau is divided into the high Mittelbau (lecturers and other habilitated staff) and the low Mittelbau (assistants, PhD students, postdocs and scientific staff members).

If you're interested in getting involved with the Mittelbau, please get in touch with Christoph Greub (high Mittelbau) or Daniela Schmieder (low Mittelbau).

Members of the Mittelbau throughout the entire university are represented by the Intermediate Staff Association (MVUB). Intermediate staff at the Faculty of Science maintain close ties with the MVUB.
