Job description

The current situation of scarce global resources and the mounting climate crisis are among the wicked challenges faced by mankind today. No doubt in the years to come, these issues will have a major influence on architectural quality given the challenge posed by the continuous growth of industrialization.

The announced PhD stipends are part of the research environment affiliated to the section of Architecture and Urban Design, within the research on sustainable building practices, materials and architectural quality. The overall scheme of the PhD positions are architectural sustainable construction, design principles and practices related to architecture and ecology of tectonics. The emphasis is on alternative building materials and sollutions and how this influence the contemporary building culture. Thus, exploring how to link material ecology, construction and architectural tectonic qualities.

The PhD stipends will focus on developing a material and immaterial database that equally emphasizes environmental sustainability and architectural values and how such an expanded material knowledge can be an integral part of architectural design. The PhD will be concerned with how to streamline innovative ideas about alternative construction materials with creative and aesthetical thinking through theoretical and methodological investigations and various forms of testing and modeling. Practical and teaching experience together with publications within the call focus is a plus.
