© University of Vienna

This offer is an important measure to increase the career opportunities of female academics at the University of Vienna and thus to promote gender equality.

Ten women academics from all disciplines of the University of Vienna are invited to participate in the two-and-a-half day workshop.

By taking part they acquire extensive formal and informal knowledge about the professors' appointment process and are prepared for their applications in a targeted way.

Key topics

The legal-organisational framework; coaching in the field of soft skills; the unwritten rules of the appointment procedure; the interview with the appointment committee; strategies for salary negotiations. A range of experienced experts (a coach, professors, a legal expert, and a gender equality expert) imparts these contents to the participants.

Target group

Female academics of the University of Vienna holding a habilitation or equivalent qualification who are currently applicants in the appointment procedure or who are planning to apply for a professorship within the next few years.

Appointment training in 2017

The next appointment training course will take place from 28 until 30 September 2017 (in German language).

Applications details will be published on this website in June 2017.

If you are already in an appointment procedure or have applied for a professorship recently, please be sure to inform us about this.
