At the Department of Architecture at Technische Universität Darmstadt the position of an

Assistant Professorship (W2, Tenure-Track) - "Design and Technology in

integral Building Systems"

is to be filled. The position is initially limited to six years.

We are looking for a personality at the interface between architecture and science who has a proven track record in building technology and who researches methods for integrating building technology into the design process and teaches them.

Sustainable buildings are networked technological systems. Research will focus on the holistic consideration of building technology and building services from design and planning, through construction, to the low-resource operation of buildings. The knowledge gained from this will be incorporated into the designs and development of innovative planning processes that understand building technology as an intelligent, self-learning and self-regulating system. In this way, innovative possibilities will be explored to design buildings and the building stock in a future-proof and sustainable way under the aspects of architectural quality.

We are looking for an internationally outstanding scientist early career stage with promising potential for independent design competence. A degree in architecture or engineering and an outstanding doctorate are required. If applicable, a non-doctoral degree may be demonstrated by doctoral-appropriate achievements (outstanding work with technological innovation and scientific content).

The assistant professor must participate in teaching duties also in the design area of the bachelor's and master's degree programs of the Department of Architecture as well as interdepartmental degree programs. This requires special didactic skills. In addition, the ability and willingness to cooperate in an interdisciplinary manner with other departments of TU Darmstadt as well as external cooperation partners and participation in university self- administration are required.

The assistant professorship is designated as a qualification professorship according to § 70 HessHG (Hessian Higher Education Act). Accordingly, the maximum period of scientific activities during and after the doctorate generally shall not exceed nine years or the scientific activity after the doctorate shall not exceed four years. Furthermore, applicants should have completed their doctorate at an university other than TU Darmstadt or have worked scientifically outside TU Darmstadt for at least two years after completing their doctorate.

The assistant professorship is initially limited to six years. The position comes with the option of a tenured professorship after a successfully completed tenure process. The tenure process, which can be initiated one and a half year before the end of the assistant professorship, evaluates the corresponding achievements in research and teaching. After a successful probationary phase, the immediate transition to a tenured professorship is granted. For further information, please see the tenure guidelines of Technische Universität Darmstadt. Remuneration follows the German W-Besoldung at level W2 Hessisches Besoldungsgesetz. A comparable employment relationship is possible.

As part of the Frankfurt-Rhine-Main metropolitan region, Technical University of Darmstadt and its surroundings are characterized by living internationality. The core element of this is a cosmopolitan climate with functional multilingualism at our university. Therefore, very good English and – after three years at the latest – good German language skills are expected.

Technical University of Darmstadt intends to increase the number of female employees and encourages female candidates to apply. In case of equal qualifications applicants with a degree of disability of at least 50 or equal will be given preference. Technical University of Darmstadt is certified as a family-friendly university and offers a dual career program.

Applications can also be submitted in English, quoting the identification number, together with the usual documents, in particular a curriculum vitae, possibly samples of work and a list of works, a list of publications, possibly an overview of previous teaching activities and a description of scientific activities, copies of diplomas and certificates (including the certificate of university entrance qualification) as well as a research and teaching concept (max. 3-4 pages) to the Dean of the Faculty of Architecture Prof.'in Christiane Salge, El-Lissitzky-Strasse 1, D-64287 Darmstadt preferably in electronic form (a single PDF file) to the e-mail: [email protected].
