Doctoral Programme for Women at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology offers doctoral programmes particularly for female doctoral students.
Although every year more women enroll in our engineering programme, they are still underrepresented. The high qualification level of our female alumni(graduates) shows that there is a lot of potential untapped.
If you would like to know more about female scientists at the TU Wien please check out the website frauenspuren.at.
Our state of the art facilities as well as our excellent scientific personnel makes this faculty one of the best research institutions in Europe. We therefore especially encourage women to enroll in our doctoral programme!
The TU Wien offers many promotional programmes to create positive and career-enhancing conditions for women. A few of them are listet here:
- Mentoring for doctoral students
- Individual coaching for students and scientists (German only)
- Childcare and information for (expectant) parents (German only)
- Workshops (German only)
- Events (German only)
- Seminars (German only)
All these programmes are organized by the Office for Gender Competence of the TU Wien.
For individual advice please contact Prof. Reider. He is professor at our faculty and offers mentoring for doctoral students. A first chat with him wouldn't hurt even if you have already started.
We are happy to receive your application, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We take all applications seriously but please make our job as easy as possible by supporting your application with all required material such as proof of a master level degree (possibly translated), a meaningful and complete CV and a clear indication what your research interests are. Note that we are not only interested in graduates from electrical engineering; applications from physics, maths or computer science are also very welcome, depending on a background sufficiently related to engineering and suitable research interests.
We are seriously trying to find positions for all qualified students; we cannot promise to have a job for everybody though. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
If you have particular questions about the requirements and study duties as a doctoral student, please contact Dietlinde Egger.
