The History of Architecture and Urban Planning Group in the Department of Architecture and the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus PortCityFutures research center in collaboration with the Industrial Design Faculty, are seeking to expand their teams with a Postdoc researcher interested in sustainable development at the edge of sea and land with knowledge of data collection, management and web platform development. The Postdoc researcher will be part of WP 5 of the Bauhaus of the Seas Lighthouse grant and will be based in the Netherlands and collaborate with a European research consortium.
The Bauhaus of the Seas initiative aims to develop solutions for climate neutrality with a particular focus on coastal cities as an interface to healthy seas, ocean and water bodies. WP 5 will develop a geospatial platform that allows for collaboration, comparison and assessment through all the steps of the project. The platform will provide access to both fixed and fluctuating GIS based data as well as for soft mapping of the project’s interventions, narratives and achievements. In doing so, it will provide the new tools for understanding maritime flows and shared waters and their relation and impact on land and port city territories. The Postdoc will take the lead in collecting data both at an European level, in relation to the pilot territories, and potentially for new members. The focus is on the pilot cases. Key questions are: How can we cross European and local data at the edge of sea and land to provide a meaningful platform for comparison? How can we enrich this data with local knowledge and outcomes of the project through soft mapping? How can we use the platform as a tool to communicate with diverse local actors?
The main objectives of the Postdoc research position are:
The research will be jointly supervised by an experienced and collaborative team comprising members from TU Delft History of Architecture+Urban Planning, PortCityFutures, and the Industrial Design Engineering faculty.
The project requires traveling to the case study locations. The candidate should be proficient in English (both writing and speaking) on a C1 CEFR level (or equivalent), and willing to collaborate and travel internationally.
Fixed-term contract: 36 months.
Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount on health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.
