The Institute for Urban Planning and Regional Development of HafenCity University Hamburg invites applications for an open research position in the project “AREA 21 - Baltic Smart City Areas for the 21st Century”.
AREA 21 is an international cooperation project funded by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020. It seeks to model energy efficient urban areas of the future, adopting collaborative stakeholder engagement processes in the strategic planning and implementation of energy solutions.
The Professor of Regional Design and Planning will maintain and strengthen the high reputation of TU Delft in research and teaching on ‘integrated urbanism’ particularly at the metropolitan scale. Regional design and planning is a wide field within which the Professor will concentrate on the use of the designerly approach of ‘envisioning’, employing spatial representations and mapping. In particular, the Professor will contribute to developing regional and metropolitan designs and to disseminating knowledge on regional design and planning methodology, on regional design and planning oriented methods of analysis, and on how regional design and planning can steer the political agenda of metropolitan regions.
The professor/associate professor of Urban Design Theory and Methods will build on a strong track record of research, education and outreach in urban design within urbanism. The professor/associate professor will lead the academic work of the urban design section. This will entail management of the urban design staff, coaching and team building, acting as principal investigator for external funding bids and providing support on publication across the whole spectrum of media. She or he will ensure continuity in the investigation of existing research and education themes that are successful, but we also welcome an injection of new ideas and topics that reflect current challenges in urban design for both research and education. The professor/associate professor will bring an international and cross-cultural perspective to bear on the subject.
The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at TU Delft invites applications for the post of Professor of Delta Urbanism. This is a new position in a field where the University has built a strong reputation, particularly through the work of former Professor Han Meyer in the Department of Urbanism, with support from the inter-faculty initiative Deltas, Infrastructures and Mobility. The post offers a unique opportunity for an outstanding candidate to develop research and education that addresses the urgent challenge to create more sustainable, and resilient deltas respecting the critical relations between urbanization, flood defence, water management, agriculture and ecosystems.
