Doris Auer (born 10 May 1971) is an Austrian pole vaulter. Her personal best is 4.40 metres (outdoors), achieved in September 2000 in Runaway Bay. This was the Austrian record until 2014 when Kira Grünberg broke the record jumping 4.45. Indoors Auer's best is 4.44 metres, achieved in Glasgow 2001. In the same year the former world champion Yelena Isinbayeva recorded 4.45 indoors.

After 2001 Auer's performance stagnated. In 2002, she resigned from competitive sports but continued to practice pole vaulting as a respectable amateur. Remarkable are her achievements in combining the career as athlete with university studies and profession literally simultaneously. She holds a university degree in sports and history and works as a high school teacher in Vienna, Austria.
