The research project Fishing Architecture (FISH-A), European Research Council Consolidator Grant reference ERC-2021-COG 101044244 (2022–2027), funded by the European Commission through the Horizon Europe Framework Programme, based at the Faculty of Architecture of the University of Porto (FAUP) in Portugal, is launching an open-ended selection procedure to create a pool of candidates from which it will recruit the research team for the interdisciplinary project. The call will remain open until 31 December.
FISH-A is a research project that sets out to trace a socioecological history of North Atlantic architecture in relation to fisheries, elucidating the relationships between marine environments and terrestrial landscapes and assessing the ecological impact of fishing constructions and the natural resources they depend upon. Please check the project website for further information.
The team is looking for expressions of interest from researchers in architecture, marine biology, and related fields who are willing to mix theory and practice in a critical and imaginative way. The successful candidates will be based in Porto for a period of between two and four years: to ensure the effective delivery of the research project, they will work there alongside other members of the research team, in which they will play a
valuable role. They will work in the research project’s collaborative environment, attend regular team meetings for the duration of their contracts, and contribute to the project outputs. Depending on their profiles, they will also be expected to prepare papers for presentation at national and international conferences, take part in teaching activities related to these topics, organize workshops and fieldwork campaigns, and submit their work for peer-reviewed publication. Although the research will be conducted in English, knowledge of other languages is welcomed.
