Advancement of Women in Academia

TU Graz aims to create conditions where both men and women are able to develop their personal and professional skills - without being limited by gender stereotypes or any other discriminating role assignment.  

Both men and women contribute ideas of high scientific quality. When men and women work together, the potential for innovation increases.  

In order to work towards the aim of having an equal proportion of men and women on all career levels, TU Graz provides women scientists with numerous services:   

  • Leading Women
  • Tenure Tracks for Women
  • Strategic Career Planning for Women PhD Students
  • Potentials Programme
  • Women Tech Talk
  • Club Scientifica
  • Gender NOW!

Tenure Tracks for Women

In order to promote academic careers for women at TU Graz, the university advertises tenure tracks specifically for women. A tenure track is a “post-doc” position with the possibility of further academic progression.

Information for employees of TU Graz can be found on the TU4U intranet

Strategic Career Planning for Women PhD Students

Women at TU Graz who are in the midst of doing their thesis, can attend a 2-day workshop focussing on time management, work-life balance, and reconciling the various task fields of thesis, teaching and administration.  Further topics address the issue of planning life after graduation: careers in the sciences or in the private sector.

An individual advice session is also provided.

Career Programme for women scientists

The Potential Programme offers continuing education for female academics at all stages of their career as well as for students, managers, academic and non-academic staff (sometimes for men and women), and staff working in the promotion of equal rights. The programme is organised by the University of Graz and is co-funded by all Graz universities.

Find details and registration information in the calendar of events at the Coordination Centre for Gender Studies and Equal Opportunities.

Women Tech Talk

Young female researchers and graduates of TU Graz talk to pupils about their background and their work. Professors from TU Graz also take part in the subsequent podium discussion.
