The Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) is one of Germany’s leading research universities. The University draws its strengths from both the diversity and the proximity of scientific and engineering disciplines on a single, coherent campus. This highly dynamic setting enables students and researchers to work across traditional boundaries of academic subjects and faculties. The RUB is a vital institution in the Ruhr area, which has been selected as European Capital of Culture for the year 2010.
PROFESSORSHIP (W2) IN RESOURCE-EFFICIENT BUILDINGThe Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Ruhr-University Bochum, invites applications for the position of a Professorship (W2) in Resource-Efficient Building. The future holder of the position will represent the subject in research and teaching. In research, there should be a focus in the area of the planning of newly constructed buildings, the usage and dismantling of resource-efficient and sustainable buildings in consideration of building physics and climate-relevant aspects. The knowledge and relevant competence in the areas of environmental and energy accounting, material flow management as well as life cycle planning are required. The future holder of the position will actively contribute in the development of the research focus of the faculty and will influence thereby the performance and the reputation of the Ruhr-University Bochum.
