Our benefits for research assistants

Striving for top performance together

In line with our areas of expertise in teaching, there are 10 specialized centers at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria. Within these, we research state-of-the-art issues in the fields of computer science, communication, media, health & social affairs, economics, management, technology and environmental sciences.

Focus on knowledge

As FH Upper Austria, education is our specialty. That is why we offer our employees a comprehensive range of internal and external professional development opportunities and individual coaching. We also offer the Doctoral College for Doctoral Candidates especially for our teaching and R&D staff. Young colleagues who are writing their dissertation at a university are offered the opportunity to take part in special continuing education programs free of charge.

Strong relationships are the key

In our self-image as the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, the promotion of our "triad of knowledge" - science, business and teaching - is our most important mission. After all, it is not only our partners who benefit from this: the combination of a wide range of research areas from business, technology and social affairs results in innovations that give our society the decisive edge. We also attach great importance to international research issues: In addition to international R&D projects, FH Upper Austria researchers also complete research stays at foreign universities.

Precision through first-class research equipment

Our research and development equipment is as versatile as our research topics: all our laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art devices and software tools. This is because our top priority is to ensure that our research results are state of the art and meet the highest standards of accuracy and precision in measurement, testing and analysis.

Developing potential - discovering perspectives

As an employee in our research department, you have the opportunity to work on a specialist area for a few months or to pursue long-term research prospects. In addition, we support doctoral studies as well as other paths to further qualification - for example within our teaching. A typical career path as a research assistant usually begins with an internship and progresses to R&D project manager and senior researcher. Building on this, a career as a UAS professor is also possible.
