Application and fees

Applications:

The facility is open to all Swiss and international scientists. Projects can be submitted using this SwissSIMS Application form (PDF, 60kB) that should be sent to swisssims@nullunil.ch.

There are usually 2 calls for proposal per year (deadlines: early June and early December). Submitted projects will be reviewed by a scientific steering committee, composed of 10 members from different Earth Sciences domains and from different swiss academic institutions.

Fees:

Due to the new SNF accounting, the fees are now being subdivided between:

  • Consumables, which are charged at a fixed daily rate;
  • Assistance with the analysis (including data processing); which is an hourly fee. The number of hours of assistance charged will depend on the level of experience of the user.

Following our experience, here are a few examples of typical sessions at the SwissSIMS facility:

Samples (indium and epoxy mounts) prepared at UNIL will be subject to additional charges.
