Professor accuses ETH corruption

These accusations to the address of the ETH have it all: leadership deficiencies at the College, sexism and corruption, physics Professor Ursula Keller speaks in an Interview with the online magazine "Republic". There have been too many inconsistencies to be dismissed, her colleague Marcella Carollo, with a clear Conscience. ETH is planning their dismissal due to allegations that she had been to doctoral students is incorrect.

the basement, however, are, in the Swiss state of law would the Accused to be innocent, as long as no misconduct of doubt, be established. The against Carollo's allegations had never been, with due diligence checks. Therefore, no one could say whether the Professor or the PhD students have told the truth.

"I'm today's Anna Göldi"

Carollo himself stressed in an Interview with the "world week", the ETH have never said that inappropriate Behaviour-her-name. In the media allegation of bullying you. She has never been offensive. You have just ensured that the doctoral students achieved their maximum potential.

"I asked my students to read an hour a day, used but never inappropriate language."Marcella Carollo, from the dismissal threatened a Professor

"I asked my students to read an hour a day, used but never in an inappropriate language and not the language even of any brain sizes," she said in the Interview. "The campaign against me, that's bullying." She had been confronted with the allegations. Everything had been kept secret. Carollo is asking for a fair process, and compares himself to the last witch was burned in Switzerland: "I am today's Anna Göldi."

"As a woman in the shark

With a male Professor's pool," would you change differently, Carollos professional colleague Keller: "You would not be charged on the basis of vague allegations of a Professor immediately. Probably would have been washed with a male colleague in the physics Department in it, if he would be undetectable have been guilty." As a woman, one was basin in the physics Department in a shark.

"A man would have been washed in the physics Department, probably even inside if he would have been guilty." Ursula Keller, ETH-Professor

The University accuses you of serious lack of Leadership and calls for a clear separation of competencies. The ETH will be directed by informal coalitions that United all of the Power. There is an inner circle of professors, who "were a bit more equal than the others". This would have to be abolished, for example, the transparency in the allocation of funds. "Basically, I'm talking about corruption," says Keller. In Carollos case, the physics Professor warns the ETH-Council: If the requested dismissal agree, will request a parliamentary investigation.

not Legally justified rather

The school Board has requested behavior, the dismissal of a Professor at the former Institute for astronomy, following allegations about poor leadership. An administrative investigation, the termination of the employment relationship recommended.

The termination of a Professor, or a Professor, however, is not easy. The Professor regulation provides that a Commission shall examine the appropriateness of the termination. The decision as to whether or not the ETH-Council, a motion to dismiss is filed, then the President of ETH Zurich, together with the school management.

The Commission held that a dismissal from a legal point of view, is rather justified. The Professor had only been late shown a yellow card and therefore had no opportunity to adapt their behaviour. Nevertheless, the ETH Zurich is planning the release. The Professor will show no insight that they have acted improperly. There was no prospect of improvement. (hub/sda)
