As Austria's largest research and educational institution in the natural sciences and technology, the TU Wien offers a motivating working environment in which personal development and the unfolding of individual life plans are possible. You have over 5000 colleagues working in research, teaching and support. It is not possible to know all of them personally, but a successful onboarding offers the opportunity to quickly find your way around and become part of the TU Wien.

In addition to your immediate superiors (leaders), job mentors and IT contact persons are the central contact persons who can help you with your onboarding.

A checklist, opens a file in a new window is intended to help you, your supervisor and other persons who support you at the beginning of your employment to work through all the necessary steps for a smooth arrival at the TU Wien in a structured manner (varies depending on the workplace).

Your supervisor can provide you with a job mentor from your new team for the onboarding phase. This person will personally support you in arriving at the team and introduce you to the informal knowledge of the department. We have created a short guide for this as well.
