Career development towards research professorship
Internal career development for medical specialists and post-docs
Med Uni Graz has developed an internal career program for academic staff that promotes medical research and supports medical specialists and post-docs in advancing their scientific careers. Med Uni Graz staff can apply for acceptance in the career program once a year. A successful application (preparation for a selection or appointment procedure) is directly reflected in a higher salary. Upon successful completion of the program, the limited term position is replaced by an unlimited term position and Med Uni Graz confers the title "Research Professor."
The career program supports young researchers in acquiring scientific qualifications so they can compete internationally for tenure track positions and provides additional career prospects for the post-doc phase if no tenure track professorships are vacant.
A young researcher program that imparts how to manage scientific working groups and facilitate networks accompanies the scientists.
