Women in Chemistry - Career network for female chemists at the University of Vienna

Who we are

We are a network by and for young female researchers at the Faculty of Chemistry of the University of Vienna. Colleagues support each other in third-party fund-raising from women’s empowerment programs. More experienced researchers advise and guide younger scientists in carrier planning by peer-to-peer mentoring. We share our knowledge in regular meet-ups and via a mailing list. Information and links on upcoming talks and/or events are available on this website.

What we offer

  • A network for junior female researchers at the Faculty of Chemistry
  • Peer-to-peer mentoring
  • Talks of national and international renown scientists
  • Trainings for members and those who interested
  • Exchange of knowledge with other local and international groups supporting female researchers
  • Contact for external inquieries (collaborations, networking, media)
