Tenure Track Professorship (W1) „Computing in Architecture"
INSTITUTE FOR COMPUTATIONAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION (ICD) I CLUSTER OF EXCELLENCE: INTEGRATIVE COMPUTATIONAL DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION FOR ARCHITECTURE (INTCDC) I AT THE EARLIEST CONVENIENCE
The University of Stuttgart is a leading technical university in Germany and centrally located in one of Europe’s most important high-tech regions. Strengthening its
internationally visible excellence in the area of architecture and intelligent systems is a key strategic goal of the university. The recently established Cluster of Excellence
IntCDC bundles the competencies of the University of Stuttgart in architecture, civil engineering, manufacturing and system engineering, computer science and robotics, social
sciences and humanities to establish a globally unique centre for advanced research and architectural innovation.
The Professorship (W1) with Tenure Track is dedicated to strengthening the link between architecture and computer science in research and teaching. It is embedded in the various
research activities of the Institute for Computational Design and Construction
(https://icd.uni-stuttgart.de) and the Cluster of Excellence IntCDC "Integrative Computational Design and Construction for Architecture"
(https://icd.uni-stuttgart.de/?p=24111). Connections to the Department of Computer Science and the Cyber Valley Initiative
(https://cyber-valley.de) are envisioned. The professorship’s research centers on the development and integration of computer
science methods in computational design and digital construction, with a special focus on the areas of machine learning and artificial intelligence. In teaching, it supports the courses
of the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning in this subject area. Participation in academic management is expected.
We are looking for an outstanding early career researcher with profound knowledge of computer science methods, experience with machine learning and/or artificial
intelligence, and interest in their application in architecture. We expect preliminary work in one of the aforementioned research areas and the ability to collaborate
in an interdisciplinary context.
The independent acquisition of research funding and the active participation in the EXC IntCDC is also expected, which may include the role of Principal Investigator in the next funding phase.
The professorship is funded in the context of the joint programme for the promotion of early career researchers by the German federal and state-governments. The position is a
tenure track position leading to an appointment as a W3 professor in case of a positive evaluation. The requirements for employment listed in § 51 Baden-Württemberg University
