WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) combines excellence with responsibility.
Its rare triple accreditation by EQUIS, AACSB, and AMBA is a guarantee for the highest quality research and teaching in the fields of business, economics, and business law. WU’s research is distinguished by the diversity of disciplines practiced at WU, allowing researchers to deal with even the most complex of research questions.

International cooperation is very important to WU, and we encourage and support both faculty and student mobility. WU is also very aware of its responsibility to its students, faculty, and staff and is committed to gender equality, equal opportunities, accessibility, family-friendly working conditions, and sustainability.

WU is currently inviting applications for the position of a full professor[1] of Microeconomics and Digitalization at the Department of Economics. Digitalization has changed the way businesses operate today and how they will be run in the future. Differences may lie in consumer behavior, firm behavior, and in the modes of competition. The successful candidate is expected to conduct research on microeconomics with a specific focus on the digital economy. Candidates are expected to have established an international reputation as a researcher in their field. Depending on the candidate’s academic credentials, the employment contract can be concluded either as a permanent employment contract or as a fixed-term employment contract with the option of a permanent extension.[2]

Further details on the call for applications, including a detailed qualification profile, can be found online:

WU is committed to diversity and inclusion and aims to achieve an equal gender balance in its senior faculty. In its Strategic Plan, its Plan for the Advancement of Women, and the Performance Agreement concluded with the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research, WU has committed itself to increasing the number of women among its full professors. For this reason, WU is inviting only women researchers to apply for this professorship. We are looking forward to receiving numerous applications. Women with disabilities are encouraged to apply and will be supported during each stage of the recruitment process. Candidates’ qualifications will be assessed in the context of their academic age.

WU has been awarded University and Family Audit (Audit hochschuleundfamilie) certification and assists dual career couples. For further details, please see
