8f) Is there any rule with regard to the number of FTEs that employees in an SNSF-funded project need to work?

​For doctoral students a minimum work-time percentage of 60% FTE is compulsory: this "protected time" is to be devoted exclusively to the doctoral thesis. If the doctoral student is employed at a higher percentage than the protected time of 60%, he/she may devote no more than an additional 20% to other tasks within the institute. No restrictions apply to the other employees in this regard. However, applicants are expected to employ postdocs at 100% FTE should this be requested by the postdoc. Postdocs funded by the SNSF may devote no more than 20% FTE to tasks within the institution that do not directly affect their scientific qualifications.
