The Amsterdam Institute of Advanced Metropolitan Solutions has funded a post-doc position in our research group to integrate data from two main information domains that maintain and collect 3D data about the built environment: BIM (building information modelling) and Geographic Information (Geo).
The project aims to develop a fundamental solution to integrate models of single buildings and construction sites (BIM) with models of complete urban areas (Geo). The solution will allow us to access BIM data from Geo applications and access geo data in BIM applications.
The task of the post-doc is to analyse the data requirements from a few selected use cases: what data do BIM professionals need and what data do Geo professionals need to accommodate the workflows and applications of the use cases? From those data requirement analyses, the post-doc will design and prototype solutions.
The post-doc does not need to start from scratch. Together with users and stakeholders from both domains we have collaborated in a GeoBIM project in 2017 in which an automated conversion from BIM to Geo was partly developed. The post-doc will build on these results and continue our collaboration with national and international stakeholders, with national and international academia and with national and international standardisation bodies.


We are looking for a researcher with a PhD in a field related to 3D Geoinformation and/or BIM (geomatics, BIM, geography, computer science, GIS, urbanism, or a comparable subject). The candidate enjoys and has an affinity for working in multi‐disciplinary teams in an internationally-oriented environment. Applicants must possess the abaility to publish their work in scientific journals and be strongly motivated for post-doctoral studies. In addition, they should possess the ability to work independently and perform critical analysis, and also possess good cooperation and communication abilities in English. The candidate should have an affinity for programming. The ability to develop prototypes and software is an advantage. The position is open immediately until filled and is initially limited to one year.


The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.

Technische Universiteit Delft


Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is a multifaceted institution offering education and carrying out research in the technical sciences at an internationally recognised level. Education, research and design are strongly oriented towards applicability. TU Delft develops technologies for future generations, focusing on sustainability, safety and economic vitality. At TU Delft you will work in an environment where technical sciences and society converge. TU Delft comprises eight faculties, unique laboratories, research institutes and schools. Architecture The Department of Urbanism in the Faculty of Architecture at Delft University of Technology was established in 1948 and since then has contributed to academic knowledge of the urban environment and design and planning interventions. The Urbanism research group’s core task is to mobilise its multidisciplinary knowledge, skills, and reputation towards the creation of more sustainable living environments. The priority is to contribute solutions to the urgent challenges of urbanisation in the context of climate change.

The 3D Geoinformation research group, part of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at the Delft University of Technology, focuses on the technologies underpinning geographical information systems (GIS), and aims at designing, developing, and implementing better systems to model 3D cities, buildings, and landscapes.
It is a multidisciplinary group of around 20 people, including computer scientists, geomatics engineers, and geographers. Four of them are tenured staff (one Professor, one Associate Professor, and two Assistant Professors). The group has a history of successful collaborations with industry and the government: its research has led to open source software, standards, and patents for the management of 3D geographic information.
