After completing his studies, he worked as an assistant at the University of Vienna and qualified as a professor in 1968 . In 1969 he was appointed full professor of mathematics at the University of Salzburg, where he was the successor of Joachim Dalfen in the academic years 1987/88 and 1988/89 and taught until his retirement in 2010. Theodor Wolfram Köhler succeeded him as rector in 1989 . In the years 1977–1979, 1985–1987 and 1999–2003, Schweiger also served as dean of the university's natural science faculty. His students include Ewald Gratz, Bernhard Schratzberger and Ron Sommer . In his scientific work, he deals, among other things, with the didactics of mathematics, number theory and mathematics in combination with linguistics.
On a voluntary basis, he was, among other things, chairman of the Catholic Educational Institute in Salzburg , president of the Association of Friends of the Mozarteum Orchestra and chairman of the Catholic Association of Academics .
