LIStrat GmbH is the brainchild of Dr. T.O.Nagy, who obtained his doctoral degree from the Univiersity of Vienna in 2014. Highly committed to research and education, the founding team agreed to make his alma mater the home of their enterprise. The prospect of developing in a vibrant, highly motivated environment, surrounded by the top brass at the frontiers of research and technology, with access to high grade equipment as well as the opportunity to introduce our students to the industrial processes and provide hands on research topics resulting in university thesis' and scientific publications made the decision an easy one.

For more information on career opportunities, current bachelors', masters' or PhDs' research topics, please have a look at our vacancies.
