As an Assistant Professor, you will contribute to teaching, research and management tasks. Your main teaching tasks will be in courses of the bachelor programme of Spatial Planning & Design, the master programme of Environmental & Infrastructure Planning, as well as in supervising master and/or bachelor theses.
We are looking for an Assistant Professor with an interest in environmental planning to strengthen our research and education in coping with several dominant sustainability challenges. Key examples of such challenges include climate change adaptation, environmental pollution and stress, and energy transition. The Assistant Professor will specifically target research and education focussed on the physical environment. Hence, expertise and skills are expected for analysing, researching and explaining physical environmental processes and impacts. Processes can include flows of matter, energy or pollution, while impacts can range from the deterioration of soil, water, air or health to phenomena such as flooding or climate change. Next to analysing the physical world, the Assistant Professor will explicitly engage with opportunities to prevent, mitigate and compensate impacts. In doing so, affinity with planning and policy making is crucial, as is engaging with related social sensitivities surrounding sustainability transformations. Notably, the Assistant Professor will actively play a role in connecting physical-technical knowledge of the environment to the institutional world of planning and policy making while pursuing sustainability transformations.
You will invest 60% of your time in teaching and management and 40% in research (including PhD supervision).
