On behalf of the Rectorate, the Culture and Equality unit offers three fixed-term positions (6 months each) for female postdoctoral researchers as part of a new program for the advancement of women. The positions will especially be awarded to those faculties/centers of the University of Vienna where women are significantly underrepresented and will be advertised twice a year.

Your personal sphere of play:

The program supports female scientists at the University of Vienna in completing research projects, finalizing / revising / resubmitting research proposals and/or completing publications.

Your future tasks:

You focus on the completion of a research project, the finalization/revision/submission of a research proposal and/or the completion of publications.

You fulfill the following requirements:

You are a female postdoc,

  1.  who has a current employment contract with the University of Vienna and
  2. whose employment contract has a maximum duration of seven months at the time of application and
  3. who can present a project (project, project proposal, publication) that is close to completion.

Funding can only be awarded to those female scientists who can be employed for at least 6 more months according to §109 UG at the time of taking up the position.

It is that easy to apply:

  • With your scientific CV
  • With your letter of motivation (max. 1 page)
  • With your work schedule (max. 1 page)
  • With your list of publications (most important publications highlighted)

What we offer:

Flexible start date: You can take up the position either directly after the end of your current contract or at the earliest possible date (presumably November 2024).

Semiannual advertisement:  The position is awarded twice a year and applications can be submitted on an ongoing basis. The application deadline for the first positions is September 2, 2024.

Fixed-term contract and fair salary: The basic salary of EUR 4,752.30 (14 x annually) for a period of 6 months increases if we can credit previous professional experience.

Work-life balance: You have flexible working hours and can also work remotely (also part-time by arrangement).

Inspiring working environment: You will continue to be part of an international team with excellent research infrastructure in a good working environment.

Internal training and coaching: We offer you the opportunity to deepen your skills.

Equal opportunities for all: We welcome every personality to the team
