Professorship (W3) of Architectural History, University of Stuttgart

The professorship is expected to focus on research in the general history of architecture and urban construction in their local, regional and global context. Other possible subject areas of the professorship are building research as the basis for the central topic of “building in existing buildings” as well as monument preservation and the history of landscape architecture.

In teaching, the professorship is intended to represent the history of architecture for students of the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning in the bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in all its breadth. The tasks of the professorship include not only conveying historical concepts and artifacts, but also dealing with systematic aspects of the design.

Interdisciplinary cooperation within the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning is expected in research and teaching. In addition, cooperation between the professorship and other faculties, subjects and institutions is desirable, in particular with the Institute for Art History, the International Center for Cultural and Technical Research (IZKT) and the Stuttgart Research Center for Text Studies or the Interchange Forum for Reflecting on Intelligent Systems (IRIS).

The chair of the Institute for Architectural History (IFAG) is connected to the professorship.

Applications in German for the full time professorship are due by Tuesday, 30 November 2021 at 11:59 pm to the email berufung-ifag@igma.uni-stuttgart.de.
