In order to attract outstanding postdoctoral researchers, IST Austria has set up the ISTplus postdoctoral program for exceptional researchers, which is partially funded by the European Union. The program provides postdocs with an international and interdisciplinary research environment. ISTplus postdocs' careers will be enhanced by IST Austria's career development program and options for secondment. Funding is usually provided for two years although contracts may be extended beyond the duration of the fellowship if justified by a postdocs' intersectoral secondment proposal.


ISTplus is open to qualified applicants from all over the world who are interested in spending the postdoctoral stage of their scientific research career at IST Austria. The program is intended for postdocs interested in the areas that are represented by the faculty at IST Austria.


There are two calls for applications per year. The application deadlines are March 15th and September 15th. The indicative number of foreseen fellowships to be funded is 12 for each Call, unless otherwise announced.


The Institute offers an internationally competitive salary, full social security coverage, and additional benefits.


For further information about the program and the online application process, please refer to the ISTplus website: http://ist.ac.at/research/postdoctoral-research/istplus/


IST Austria values diversity and is committed to equality. Female researchers are encouraged to apply.
