The Group of History of Architecture and Urban Planning is inviting applications for one assistant professor position in the Department of Architecture on data-based approaches to health and the design liveable cities and landscapes, notably at the edge of sea and land with a long-term perspective. This position is funded by the Sector Plan Design Engineering Science, and explores adaptive strategies that can help rethink the relationship between architecture and the urban environment as well as redefine the concept of liveable environments through a data based approach.
The UD will develop theoretical foundations and design methodologies for the analysis of long-term health-related data, acknowledging questions of social equity and civic participation – the so-called right to the city while building upon data driven research and digital humanities approaches. Building upon data driven research and digital humanities approaches, the UD will use space-based visualization to provide insight into the complex themes of urban spaces and health. The UD will use these visualizations of long-term development to help generate new scenarios and narratives for healthy buildings and spaces and provide the foundation for living labs and research by design approaches. The UD will also test the findings in educational settings to develop more sustainable and socially just spaces and will participate in the education of the HAUP group.
You will contribute to the research and educational agenda by implementing pedagogic models that could further enhance their focus on Duurzame en slimme verstedelijking (Sustainable and Smart Urbanization) and Gezonde leefomgeving (Healthy Living Environments). They will also be asked to contribute to the teaching programmes of the History Group for 40 percent of their time.
