I have just been browsing through some articles on Switzerland's Nuclear policies and it appears they have four working power plants and several other research reactors. I know they have ITER, and that would be great, but I am sure it is extremely competitive to get in there. Does anyone know what the average entry level nuclear engineer working at a power plant in Switzerland can expect to make? Also what are the barriers to entry for foreigners, if any? I have been going through the Federal Office of Energy's website, and there doesn't seem to be much information on careers, but there is some interesting info on PhD research projects (http://nes.web.psi.ch/structure_staff.html) and Master's programs. I might be interested if I could hold a nuclear job while going to school there. That's another thing, the funding situation seems a bit confusing...do they pay stipends like in the US or is it pay to play? Would it be realistic to get a job at a PP in Switzerland with a master's degree and continue working on a PhD part time while at the PP?
