The Chancellor of Austria (German: Reichskanzler Österreich) is the head of the government of Austria and is a position analogous to Prime Minister. The Chancellor of Austria is appointed by the King of Austria in theory, but in practice is often selected "upon the recommendation" of the National Assembly (Reichsversammlung), the lower house of the Parliament of Austria (Österreichisches Parlament).

The Chancellor is the head of government and thus heads a Cabinet of fellow Ministers. Until constitutional reforms in 1954, the Chancellor always held the portfolio for the Foreign Ministry in addition to his duties as head of government. Since 1954, the Foreign Ministry has been separarted from the Chancellery. The current Chancellor of Austria is Arnold Schwarzenegger.
