under the reserve that funds are gran­ted - part-time employ­ment may be pos­sible

A pos­i­tion for a research assist­ant (includ­ing research­ing and teach­ing) is to be filled for the launch, super­vi­sion and future devel­op­ment of the PRO­JEKT­LABOR K (K-Lab) – under the dir­ec­tion of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Angela Mil­lion, at the Insti­tute of Urban and Regional Plan­ning (ISR) at TU Ber­lin.

Work­ing field:

Coordin­a­tion and man­age­ment of research and teach­ing activ­it­ies of the K-Lab – the new labor­at­ory for CAR-TOGRAPHY (geodata man­age­ment and visu­al­iz­a­tion of urban plan­ning/design con­tent), KNOW­LEDGE MOBIL­ISA­TION (dis­sem­in­a­tion activ­it­ies, pub­lic­a­tions unit), COM­MU­NIC­A­TION (pub­lic rela­tions, alumni), as well as COORDIN­A­TION & TEACH­ING (pro­ject teach­ing, meth­ods) in the Bach­elor and Mas­ter study pro­grams (Urban and Regional Plan­ning / Urban Design) at the ISR. Tasks include research and teach­ing in the fields of urban plan­ning and design meth­ods and tools (car­to­graphy, GIS, CAD, graphic design, data visu­al­iz­a­tion, etc.), the con­tin­ued devel­op­ment of the K-Lab (incl. acquis­i­tion of research pro­jects, test­ing of new teach­ing formats), duties in the areas of know­ledge mobil­iz­a­tion and com­mu­nic­a­tion, as well as the con­tin­ued coordin­a­tion of the pro­ject teach­ing and study pro­grams at the ISR. The pos­i­tion includes a teach­ing load of 8 SWS in the ISR’s Bach­elor and Mas­ter pro­grams (Stadt- und Region­al­planung, Urban Design).


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) and PhD in urban and regional plan­ning, urban design, geo­graphy or related dis­cip­lines, very good res­ults desired; min­imum three years of exper­i­ence in a reg­u­lar aca­demic or indus­trial pos­i­tion; min­imum five years of exper­i­ence in a reg­u­lar aca­demic or sim­ilar pos­i­tion.
A broad and solid know­ledge of, and extens­ive exper­i­ence in the future work­ing fields of the K-Lab is a pre­requis­ite for research and teach­ing in the described fields. High organ­iz­a­tional and com­mu­nic­a­tional cap­ab­il­ity are man­dat­ory, as well as good com­mand of Ger­man and Eng­lish (fur­ther lan­guages desir­able), and high motiv­a­tion and abil­ity to work inde­pend­ently.
High interest in research top­ics related to the areas of K-lab are expec­ted; a Habil­it­a­tion within the frame of this pos­i­tion is pos­sible and will be encour­aged. To inde­pend­ently con­duct research pro­jects, exper­i­ence in applic­a­tion-ori­ented and basic research is expec­ted, incl. acquis­i­tion and pro­ject man­age­ment. Exper­i­ence with inter­na­tional pro­jects (e.g. on European level) is an advant­age, as well as with pub­lic­a­tions and present­a­tions in national and inter­na­tional set­tings like con­fer­ences and work­shops.
Teach­ing exper­i­ence in related fields is a must (incl. good know­ledge of teach­ing meth­od­o­lo­gies) – spe­cific­ally, in the areas of car­to­graphy or the visu­al­iz­a­tion of plan­ning con­tent (GIS, CAD, graphic design, model build­ing, 3D, etc.). It is expec­ted for the can­did­ate to inde­pend­ently con­duct reg­u­lar courses (e.g. visu­al­iz­a­tion and meth­ods, pro­jects, stu­dios) and other formats (e.g. work­shops, sum­mer schools), as well as to super­vise gradu­ation pro­jects and theses (in Ger­man and Eng­lish).
Exper­i­ence in pub­lic rela­tions and com­mu­nic­a­tion are expec­ted; famili­ar­ity with pub­lish­ing pro­cesses would be ideal for the tasks in know­ledge mobil­iz­a­tion (pub­lic­a­tion unit). Know­ledge of (or former engage­ment in) uni­versity polit­ics and/or gov­ern­ing bod­ies is a plus.
