Application deadline: May 31, 2019
Within the framework of the Research Training Group 1913 “Cultural and Technical Values of Historic Buildings” funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Faculty of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Urban Planning at Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU) is offering the following positions to commence on October 1, 2019:

for a period of 24 months, E 13 TV-L, full-time
The objective of the Research Training Group (RTG) 1913 funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) is to utilize knowledge from a variety of fields such as art, technology, and sociology to carry out academic research on historic buildings belonging to diverses historical and cultural contexts.
Historic buildings are understood in this context to be repositories of cultural value systems that include both the cultural and technical knowledge of their time. The RTG sets out to gain a greater understanding of these bearers of the architectural and technical achievements of their time through interdisciplinary research projects.
The academic work of the RTG aims to identify significant technological innovations and cultural processes by supporting individual research into historic buildings, cultural landscapes, and/or stakeholders. What is especially innovative in this regard is the focus on technical and technological aspects and their cultural and historical classification and evaluation. The cultural and technical aspects of the buildings are equally at the heart of the interdisciplinary discussion.
The postdoctoral positions will be filled by a humanities researcher (Ref. No. 19/19) and an engineering researcher (Ref. No. 20/19) who will work in tandem. These researchers will work collaboratively on a topic relevant to the Research Training Group’s research program that deals with one of the following themes; Building and Construction Technology, Art History, Historic Preservation or Urban history. Team applications are therefore highly encouraged.
Completed university doctoral studies in the humanities or engineering sciences; good
German and English; Experience in interdisciplinary collaboration.
