The Department of Architecture (www.arch.ethz.ch) at ETH Zurich invites applications for the above-mentioned position. The professorship is assigned to the Institute of Construction History and Preservation (IDB).
The new professor is called upon to impart to Bachelor and Master students the principles underlying architectonic design in the context of building redevelopment with special regard to the preservation of historic building fabric, along with the methodologies and expertise specific to these fields. Architectonic design necessarily calls for a fundamental interest in other disciplines and a readiness to integrate knowledge of them in one’s teaching approach. Cooperation with the Chair of Building Archaeology and Construction History is of particular importance.
The future professor contributes to further developing course content and research in light of current academic and scientific advancements. Research topics may lie in the field of architectural preservation and be pursued from an interdisciplinary perspective, for instance in combination with building archaeology, construction history, engineering, the humanities, the social sciences, or material development.
For the new professor, teaching consists primarily in giving lectures, supervising studio projects, and devising and accompanying study excursions. She or he supports the work of students and doctoral candidates on their respective theses while also taking an active role in developing the department overall, above and beyond the chair’s particular interests. Generally, at the Department of Architecture, undergraduate level courses are taught in German and graduate level courses in German or English.
The successful applicant is an excellent architect with a substantial portfolio in the building redevelopment field. She or he defends a clear theoretical position on the scope of preservation. She or he should furthermore be an internationally renowned personality with a proven international academic track record as well as relevant contacts and practical experience in the preservation field. Further requirements are a university degree, tried-and-tested professional capacities, and demonstrable leadership skills.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a project list, a statement of future research and teaching interests, and a description of the three most important achievements. The letter of application should be addressed to the President of ETH Zurich, Prof. Dr. Joël Mesot. The closing date for applications is 15 June 2019. ETH Zurich is an equal opportunity and family friendly employer and is responsive to the needs of dual career couples. We specifically encourage women to apply.
