University of Liege invites applications for two full-time tenured academic positions in Architecture at the Department of Architecture, Geology, Environment and Constructions (ArGEnCo), Faculty of Applied Sciences. We are looking for two dynamic and motivated individuals (m/f) with an excellent record in either architectural design studio or building construction techniques. These two domains are considered as closely intertwined within the scope of this call, still it is not expected from candidates to master both of them.
The successful candidates will take on teaching responsibilities in two Masters of Engineering: "Architecture and Building Engineering" and "Civil Engineering". They will be capable of assisting students in developing real-life projects in architecture. They will develop an original and forefront research in one of these two domains.
The first candidate will be invited to animate and structure design studios both in Bachelor and Master degrees in ‚ÄòArchitecture and Building Engineering‚Äô, ensuring that technical dimensions are properly addressed in the first phases of the architectural design. He/she will involve in teaching and research in the field of architectural design. This includes the spatial, functional, aesthetic, social and cultural dimensions of architecture, architectural history as a key resource for design practice. He/she will be able to combine these resources so as to promote collaborations, both in research and teaching, with other scientific fields developed in our Department (structure, materials, construction techniques, design engineering, urban design and planning etc.).
The second candidate will be in charge of building construction techniques, which includes constructive elements of buildings in their multiple dimensions (insulation, assembling, articulations, etc.), the integration of technical networks within buildings and the management of building construction process from design to dismantling. The candidate can be specialized in one of these different aspects or develop transversal approaches, as for instance through researches on "IT & buildings" –including Building Information Modelling & Smart Buildings - or on the retrofitting of existing buildings.
Interested candidates should hold a Ph.D. or doctoral degree.
Qualified candidates are expected to have an excellent research record and very good teaching and training skills, in order to contribute to the research output of the Department and to the quality of its educational program. The high quality of the candidate's research should either be evidenced by relevant publications or professional experience. Participation to international networks active in one of these two fields is highly appreciated.
French speaking is not a requirement for being selected for the post, provided that applicants who do not speak French are able to teach in English during the first three years of their mandate.
