The Singapore based research team from the DFAB Architecture and Digital Fabrication chair / ETH Zurich is part of the joint research project Future Cities Laboratory, established between the Eidgenoessische Technische Hochschule Zuerich (CH) and the National Research Foundation Singapore.

We are currently looking for candidates who are interested in becoming part of this unique opportunity as PostDoc researchers.

The Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) is the first research programme of the Singapore ETH Centre for Global Environmental Sustainability (SEC), a joint effort between ETH Zurich and the Singapore National Re-earch Foundation (NRF). Within this context the Chair of Professors Fabio Gramazio and Professor Matthias Kohler, for Architecture and Digital Fabrication, will investigate the design of robotically fabricated high-rise buildings. Emphasizing on how robotic construction processes can directly inform the design process and what impact this has on the architectural articulation of high-rise buildings.

Postdoc Position (80-100%)

Your responsibility will be to lead and coordinate PhD students specialized in digital fabrication and robotic fabrication along with the direction and finalization of a publication. This will implement, coordinate different research activities, acquisition, administrative work and the documentation for exhibitions and publications.
Based in Singapore, the post(s) is provided with a competitive salary and the potential of spending research visits in Switzerland.

We are looking for individuals with an established reputation in the field of architecture and/or architectural education, as evidenced in a distinguished record of teaching experience, work and /or research. Knowledge in the field of programming and digital fabrication within an architectural context is of great advantage.The candidate must actively seek to promote excellence in design, interdisciplinary thinking, and cutting edge research. The positions require a PhD along with the ability to provide exceptional guidance for the overall PhD research. We seek individuals who can contribute to the strategic vision of Gramazio & Kohler`s studio within Future City Laboratory.
