Among the many good reasons to want to research and teach at the University of Vienna, there is one in particular, which has convinced around 7,500 academic staff members so far.

  • Knowledge and areas of interest: You have demonstrable knowledge and focus of interest in Austrian or European public law, ideally through experience in institute operations and teaching experience. In addition, you already have experience or at least willingness in using multimedia teaching and learning formats.
  • You bring specific interests in the research areas focused on in the department (state organization law, administrative procedure and legal protection, rule of law, general administrative law, international and comparative constitutional law, interaction of Union law and national law).
  •  A proven publication record would be desirable.
  • You have knowledge of foreign languages. Corresponding experience abroad would be desirable.
  • You have qualified computer skills in connection with the preparation of legal texts and ready-to-publish manuscripts.
