With this pos­i­tion, TU Ber­lin espe­cially addresses and aims to pro­mote young sci­ent­ists.

Work­ing field:

The key com­pet­ences of the chair “Archi­tec­ture of Trans­form­a­tion” lie in the field of archi­tec­tural design and in the research of the trans­form­a­tion and dens­i­fic­a­tion pro­cesses of cit­ies. Its focus lies in the explor­a­tion of com­plex con­stel­la­tions that arise from social, tech­no­lo­gical, and mater­ial changes within today’s inform­a­tion soci­ety. This includes the reflec­tion upon design and build­ing con­struc­tion, with a focus on the theme of “fur­ther build­ing” within dense struc­tures. This includes the inter­dis­cip­lin­ary research on the mor­pho­lo­gical, social-spa­tial, tech­no­lo­gical, and eco­lo­gical trans­form­a­tion pro­cesses, includ­ing ques­tions of diversity, inclu­sion and gender. Research will exam­ine the con­tex­tual and inner logic of the archi­tec­tural trans­form­a­tion pro­cesses, with the goal of devel­op­ing future-ori­ented designs. The focus is on archi­tec­tural solu­tions that reflect their effect and impact on the urban sys­tem. The holder of the pos­i­tion is expec­ted to con­trib­ute act­ively to the devel­op­ment of the key research areas of TU Ber­lin and to par­ti­cip­ate in the fac­ulty’s and the Insti­tute’s teach­ing duties. Incid­ent­ally we refer to §99 Ber­lHG.


We are look­ing for a col­league with suf­fi­cient pro­fes­sional exper­i­ence, who holds a uni­versity degree in archi­tec­ture. Qual­i­fied achieve­ments in archi­tec­tural design, dis­tin­guished pro­jects, real­ized build­ings and the devel­op­ment of design meth­od­o­logy in regard to the mor­pho­lo­gical, socio-spa­tial and tech­no­lo­gical aspects must be proven. The cap­ab­il­ity of inter­dis­cip­lin­ary team­work and the will­ing­ness for par­ti­cip­a­tion in aca­demic self-gov­ern­ment is expec­ted.
Applic­ants must qual­ify for the appoint­ment accord­ing to the require­ments § 100 Ber­lHG. These entail a uni­versity degree in archi­tec­ture and build­ing con­struc­tion. Ped­ago­gical-didactic exper­i­ence and aptitude need to be doc­u­mented by a teach­ing port­fo­lio (more inform­a­tion on this on the TUB-Homepage, Dir­ect access 144242). Applic­ants must also be able to hold courses in Ger­man and Eng­lish. Incid­ent­ally we refer to the AS res­ol­u­tion on “Lan­guage Policy” of 16th May 2018. In addi­tion, the abil­ity to pro­mote young tal­ent and to lead employ­ees is expec­ted.
