- a. for a working day up to 4 hours : 30 minutes;
- b. for a working day of more than 4 hours : 60 minutes;
- c. for a working day of more than 7 hours : 90 minutes.
The absences must have been announced to the superior.

Marie Heim-Vögtlin (MHV) grants are meant for researchers who have had to interrupt or downscale their scientific activities due to their family situation (children, change of residence due to the profession of the partner, etc.). They allow grantees to resume or continue their research and to improve their scientific profile.
These grants are allocated to candidates at the doctoral and postdoctoral level who have a good scientific file in all the disciplines encouraged by the Swiss national fund (SNF) and without any age restriction.
An MHV grant includes a salary for a maximum duration of two years. It can also partially cover research and childcare costs. In order to facilitate the integration of the grantees and to allow them to pursue a long term scientific career, the host institution must guarantee a workplace and the necessary scientific support for the duration of the grant. The possibility to pursue the appointment of the grantee after the grant expires should also be ensured.
