In the Heart of Europe
Living and working in Vienna benefits from the outstanding services provided by the city and the state (strong public health service, exemplary public transport, ...). There moreover is a wide range of recreation opportunities in easy reach, within the city or in the Vienna Woods, the Burgenland lake district, and the Semmering alpine mountain range. Together with the rich and varied cultural choices on offer, they contribute to the high value of leisure time in Vienna. Residents form a very international community – about two in five of the 1.9 million people living here came from abroad. The outstanding quality of life that attracts people to Vienna is regularly reflected in international studies, which consistently rank Vienna within the top three cities for general quality of life worldwide (Vienna Tourism, Mercer Consulting) and as leading smart city (Roland Berger).
Post-doctoral scientists do not need a work permit in Austria. A residency permit is required but granted automatically for researchers at universities and institutes.
