"At our university we research, study and work together in an atmosphere of mutual respect. This collaboration is one of our strengths – and it is very important to me personally that this remains so in the future. Make sure that individual boundaries are not overstepped.

"One of the world’s top-ranked universities has closed its Institute for Astronomy following accusations of bullying. ETH Zurich confirmed that the institute had been shut and that the professor in question had had her doctoral students reassigned to other supervisors while it investigates the claims. The university’s executive board learned of the bullying accusations in February, according to an ETH spokeswoman, and “subsequently conducted interviews with all involved parties”. "These were serious accusations relating to management misconduct. This type of behaviour is not tolerated at ETH Zurich, and the university responded immediately with corrective measures,” she said in a statement."
