Your profile:

  • Experience with thin-section analysis and ceramic petrography proven by passed examinations, attended summer schools, academic theses and/or publications.

  • Ability to work in a team and openness in scientific exchange

Our offer:

We offer an annual gross salary of € 41.171,20 according to the collective agreement of the Austrian Academy of Science.

 

We would be pleased to have awakened your interest in the position and ask you to send your detailed written application (CV, letter of motivation, photo, copies of certificates, 2 letters of reference, list of literature if applicable) electronically no later than January 04, 2021 at the latest to zentrale@oeai.at with the subject "Application PraeDoc Lousoi – Job ID: ÖAI128PM220".
