The Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria, www.ist.ac.at) is an international institute dedicated to basic research and graduate education in the natural, mathematical, and computational sciences. The Institute fosters an interactive, collegial, and supportive atmosphere, sharing space and resources between research groups whenever possible, and facilitating cross-disciplinary collaborations. Our PhD program involves a multi-disciplinary course schedule and rotations in research groups, and we hire scholars from diverse international backgrounds. The campus of IST Austria is located close to Vienna, one of the most livable cities in the world.
IST Austria invites applications for Assistant Professor (tenure-track) and Professor positions in all areas of sciences including
Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth and Astrosciences, Life Sciences, Mathematics, and Physics
as well as in related and interdisciplinary fields.
We especially welcome applications from the following areas:
Chemistry, including materials chemistry, physical chemistry, synthetic chemistry, chemical physics, chemical and structural biology
Data science, including statistics, machine learning, optimization, bioinformatics, and scientific computing
Earth and astrosciences, including climate science, geology, planetary science, astrophysics, astrochemistry, and astrobiology
Engineering & technology, including bioengineering, nanotechnology, computer systems, control theory, and robotics
Assistant professors receive independent group leader positions with an initial contract of six years, at the end of which they are reviewed by international peers. If the evaluation is positive, an assistant professor is promoted to a tenured professor.
Candidates for tenured positions are distinguished scientists in their respective research fields and typically have at least six years of experience in leading a research group.
IST Austria values diversity and is committed to equal opportunities. We strive to increase the number of women, particularly in fields where they are underrepresented, and therefore we strongly encourage female researchers to apply.
