Knowledge creates value

Bright minds. Excellent research. Innovative business.

Interesting, varied and challenging: that's our work for the CDG. We support excellent research projects in Christian Doppler Laboratories and Josef Ressel Centers and fund more than 1,000 scientists at universities, universities of applied sciences and non-university research institutions.

The CDG is a non-profit association with around 200 corporate members who co-finance CD laboratories and JR centres. As a legally established "central research funding institution", we are also an important part of the Austrian research funding system. Building on this solid foundation, we are able to carry out our work in contact with the brightest minds in science and economy and thus gain insights into the latest research, which forms the basis for the innovations of the future.

We are a small, well-coordinated, highly motivated team and take time to familiarize new team members with their field of work. A high degree of flexibility with regard to individual circumstances, respectful cooperation and flat hierarchies contribute to a very good working atmosphere. The working environment is very well organized, offers structure and also freedom to shape one's own work area. Flexitime, home office and various models for part-time to full-time employment allow the work-life balance to be adapted to individual needs. In addition to the attractive salary, which is based on the public service, the job ticket for Vienna, additional days off, extensive opportunities for training and further education, fruit basket, coffee, tea and chocolate sweeten the working day.

If you want to be part of the team, then apply!
If there is no suitable position advertised, we are also happy to accept unsolicited applications.

"I especially like the contact with scientists that comes with working for the CDG. I'm smarter in the evening than in the morning, which I find very enriching."

Christiana Griesbeck, Wissenschaftsredaktion

"The various exciting research topics and the opportunity to actively help shape and further develop framework conditions for research still make my work at the CDG interesting, diverse and meaningful, even after more than 10 years."
