Delft University of Technology | Assistant and Associate Professor of Urban Studies

Deadline: 8 January 2021

The Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment has two NEW positions available:

Assistant Professor of Urban Studies (part time/full time) and an Associate Professor of Urban Studies (part time/full time)

The successful candidates will join the Urban Studies section at the department of Urbanism in the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. This section studies the interactions between people and their social and built environments, and the effects of urban design on their behaviour. In the context of growing spatial inequalities in urban regions, Urban Studies focusses on better understanding the patterns, causes and consequences, and remedies regarding these growing inequalities in an interdisciplinary and international setting. They investigate both the effects of spatial inequalities on the behaviour, well-being, and interactions of (individual) people, and how people influence the socio-spatial structures and the built environment around them.

These new academic posts are an exciting opportunity to co-develop and contribute to the teaching and research program in Urban Studies. The expected balance between teaching-research-management is 40%-40%-20%. The candidates are expected to set up independent research within the research programme of Urban Studies and to establish links with urban design and urban planning. The candidates are also expected to supervise PhD students, and publish research in high-impact peer reviewed journals. The successful candidates will actively seek to acquire funding (from national and European Research Councils, Horizon 2020, or comparable) for research projects and will lead and carry out collaborative projects with colleagues. The candidates will contribute to the faculty teaching programme (particularly courses in the Urbanism department), develop their own teaching materials, supervise students on all levels of university education, and acquire a University Teaching Qualification (if needed) within an agreed period.

For the overall balance in the section, we especially welcome applications from female academics and academics from minority groups.
