The appointment of professors shapes the University of Vienna’s academic orientation and strengthens its position in the research landscape.  

The PROFESSORS’ APPOINTMENT CONSULTING SERVICE is the communication hub for appointments of professors, starting with the offer of appointment. We strive to offer the best possible service to candidates for professorships with regard to career and personal concerns and to give them a warm welcome to the University of Vienna.

Furthermore, we support the Rector in the advertisement of the positions and the appointment negotiations and are in close contact with the Rectorate, the University’s faculties and centres and its service units.


An overview of current professorship vacancies at the University of Vienna you will find on Jobs & Recruiting.



The procedure and current templates for the announcement of professorships according to § 98 UG 2002 (unlimited), § 99 (1) UG 2002 (temporary) and tenure track professorships can be found on the intranet.
