JOB: Associate Professor in Theory and History of Architecture at KTH Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm

Associate Professor in Theory and History of Architecture at KTH Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology Stockholm has announced a new Associate Professorship in Theory and History of Architecture.
The subject encompasses studies of architecture and the built environment as understood from both theoretical and historical perspectives. Leaning towards the history of recent pasts and critical, historiographical studies, the subject takes analyses of contemporary conditions as its point of departure. Focus is placed on studies of the post-war architecture and built environment, although a broader interpretation is not excluded.
The position demands participation in both research and education in first- and second-cycle courses within the architectural program, as well as supervision and participation in third-cycle courses within the doctoral programme in architecture. Besides teaching on a practical basis, this also includes examination and course coordination, as well as pedagogical development. Duties within research include independently establishing new collaborations and research projects, through applications and research funding, as well as managing and developing research within the theory and history of architecture, and in collaboration with other subject fields and sub areas within architecture. The position may include faculty work and leadership assignments in relation to both research and education.
The full announcement and all the details are accessible at this link.
Application deadline: 25th April 2017.
