Fellowship: Postdoctoral Fellowship in History and Theory of Architecture and Urbanism. The University of Basel, Switzerland

The University of Basel, Switzerland, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in History and Theory of Architecture and Urbanism with the appointment scheduled to begin on 1 August 2018. This full-time position is for a period of six years, with a review after two years.
The position is part of the Professorship in the History and Theory of Architecture and Urbanism (Prof. Kenny Cupers), located within the university’s chair of Urban Studies at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. While the fellow will be responsible for instruction and student advising, primary emphasis is on research.
Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in architectural history, urban history, or a related field. A strong research agenda with attention to the theoretical position of contemporary scholarship is desired, as is fieldwork experience in the Global South. Candidates should feel comfortable working on team projects and advise students in urban studies.
This position is part of an interdisciplinary English-speaking research environment within the University of Basel, one of the leading research universities in Europe.
Salary will be internationally competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. The University of Basel is an equal opportunity employer; women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Please supply a letter of interest, a curriculum vitae, a research statement (maximum two single-spaced pages), a teaching statement with brief description of each class taught, and the names of three references including contact details. To ensure that your application is given full consideration, all materials should be submitted by 15 June 2018.
The letter should be addressed to:
