In the years directly following his graduation from university, Landsteiner studied under Hermann Emil Fischer and Eugen Bamberger, both of whom he was very influenced by. Landsteiner did not restrict his studies to lectures, but instead conducted many hands-on experiments and studies, with much collaboration and personal guidance from his teachers.
Around 1896, Landsteiner was an assistant to Max von Gruber at the Hygenic Institute.
From 1897 - 1908, for eleven years, Landsteiner was an assistant at the pathological-anatomical institute of the University of Vienna, where he worked under Anton Weichselbaum. Here, Landsteiner accomplished a great deal, and Weichselbaum acted as an important and highly influential mentor to Landsteiner.
Simon Flexner was an admirer and follower of Landsteiner's work, and invited him to come work for the Rockefeller Institute in New York. Since working conditions, especially following World War I, had become poor in Vienna, Landsteiner eventually accepted Flexner's job offer, and moved to the United States in 1923.
