ETH Zurich's Swiss Seismological Service (SED), the federal agency for earthquake monitoring, is not only active in research, but also provides a wide range of services. In that capacity, it is an inspiring and varied working environment for people pursuing scientific, technical and also administrative careers.
In this video, seismologists talk about their studies (in their respective mother tongue) and offer some interesting insights into a typical working day at the SED, focussing on their duties as researchers as well as their involvement in providing earthquake monitoring services.
Technical and administrative staff at the SED
Not all staff at the Swiss Seismological Service are seismologists: administrators and IT, electronics and communications specialists also play a major part in helping the SED to fulfil its mission efficiently. Check out the profiles of some its staff, active in very different areas, to find out more about what they do.
