Scientific assistant in architectural history

The Chair for the History and Theory of Architecture at the Department of Architecture, ETH Zurich, is looking for a

Scientific assistant in architectural history

The scientific assistant will develop a project proposal for a digital learning environment in the field of architectural history. The environment should enable students on the bachelor level to study architectural history autonomously by drawing on the wide variety of scholarly databases in the history of art and architecture. The environment should train students in architectural history, its methodology and questions, by improving digital literacy. Conversely, the environment should provide a testing ground for the development of sustainable and high-performance databases, integrating ongoing research into art and architectural data into the curriculum of architecture students.

The ideal candidate has a background in architectural history and a keen interest (and possibly expertise) in digital humanities. Experience with teaching architectural history is a plus. The candidate will be expected to explore the available expertise in and outside of the ETH, and to develop partnerships that sustain the conception and eventual execution of a durable and benchmarking project. We offer a full-time position for 2 months, or the full-time equivalent over a period of maximum 4 months. Position and salary will be commensurate with the successful candidate’s curriculum.

We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, specifying which expertise you would bring to the project, CV and diplomas. Deadline for the submission of the project is October 1, 2017. Please address your application to Mr Matthias Steiger, Human Resources. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
