Zurich is ready to meet the challenges of a digital future! The University of Zurich (UZH), the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW), the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) and the Zurich University of Teacher Education (PHZH) will collaborate together in the digitalization initiative "Digitalisierungsinitiative der Zürcher Hochschulen" (DIZH) over the next 10 years.

The aim of the DIZH is to promote cooperation between Zurich's higher education institutions in the field of digitalization and thus strengthen Zurich as a center of research and business. The four collaborating universities are systematically linked in the DIZH to advance research and innovation in digitalization topics with interdisciplinary approaches. The DIZH promotes research on digitalization through its three clusters «research», «innovation» and «education».

In the context of the DIZH’s «research» cluster, UZH has created a number of postdoc positions. Other calls, e.g. for labs and infrastructures, will follow!
