The research group Integral Design & Management has a vacancy for 1,0 fte for an asistant professor Transdisciplinary Design of Infrastructures in the Environment.
Civil infrastructures are interlinked with the environment and their design can purposely contribute to sustainable development that addresses issues such as climate resilience, economic prosperity and societal wellbeing. The tenure track focuses on upcoming transitions such as climate change, energy transition, circular economy and ongoing urbanisation and tries to reduce knowledge fragmentation by means of collaborative design with key players in order to come to joint solutions. Goals include the development of an effective design approach that translates societal challenges in interdisciplinary design for infrastructures, and contribution to designs, for instance for upcoming replacement of locks and flood defences, railway stations and (air)ports. Close collaboration with industry, policy-makers, and other societal partners is key. The ultimate goal of the tenure is to approach these transitions by means of transdisciplinary design and to contribute to practice via a combination of problem-seeking and problem-solving methods. The tenure track includes teaching, acquiring both second and third-source funding for research, and publishing in peer-reviewed journals. The tenure track with its own focus broadens the scope of the section Integral Design and Management.
We seek a colleague with an emerging, trans- and interdisciplinary track record focusing on engineering challenges in times of transitions regarding sustainable development; a collaborative mentality who appreciates scientific and engineering challenges in integrated design and who, through research, management skills, and teaching qualities, can inspire collegues and students alike. Candidates hold a PhD and several years of trans- and interdisciplinary postdoc experience. Successful candidates are expected to establish a strong, externally funded research programme; to have a trans & interdiciplinary network that includes national and global partners like NGO's, and to be committed to excellence in teaching in Dutch and English. You possess a good understanding of the higher education environment including diversity and inclusivity values.
At the start of the tenure-track you will be appointed as Assistant Professor for the duration of six years. Section leader, department leader and you will agree upon expected performance and (soft) skills. You will receive a start-up package and formal feedback on performance and skills during annual assessment meetings and the mid-term evaluation. If the performance and skills are evaluated positively at the end of the tenure track, you will be appointed in a permanent Assistant Professor position.
