PhD Positions – Gramazio Kohler Research / NCCR Digital Fabrication
Gramazio Kohler Research – The Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication at the Department of Architecture – is making an open call for several fully funded full-time PhD positions within the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication. PhDs will start in September / October 2018.

PhD Positions – Gramazio Kohler Research / NCCR Digital Fabrication

Since 2014, the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fabrication conducts highly collaborative research at the intersection of architecture, structural engineering, material science, computer science, mechanical engineering, mechatronics and control systems engineering. Aimed at fostering a digital building culture it is oriented toward the training of scholars and the development of advanced practitioners in the fields of architecture, engineering and science.

We are looking for highly motivated architects with a strong interest in computational design and digital fabrication. We particularly encourage applicants with experience in robotic fabrication in architecture. Applicants should have the ability to work in interdisciplinary research teams and thrive in a highly collaborative environment.

Applicants must hold a Master’s degree acquired at university level (equivalent to the FHEQ-Level 7) in architecture or related fields.

We look forward to receiving your online application (under following links) until January 31, 2018. Your application should include a letter of motivation, a brief (one-page) research statement that relates your interest to existing research at Gramazio Kohler Research, CV, Portfolio of your work in academia and practice and two recommendation letters. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.Referees must send their recommendation letters directly by email to recruitingsupport@ethz.ch. Please address the reference letter to: Prof. Matthias Kohler, Gramazio Kohler Research, ETH Zürich. The letter must be received before the application deadline.

Open PhD position in Data Science and Architecture
Gramazio Kohler Research – The Chair of Architecture and Digital Fabrication at the Department of Architecture is offering a position for a PhD in Data Science and Architecture

In cooperation with the Swiss Data Science Center (SDSC), we are offering a PhD position in the interdisciplinary research project “Data Science Enabled Acoustic Design for Digital Fabrication in Architecture”, which is conducted in close collaboration between architects, acoustic engineers and data scientists.

This PhD will investigate a novel application of data science and machine learning techniques for the design of acoustic spaces in architecture. The aim is to acquire multi-variable data from physical models through robotic measurements. This serves as foundation to analyse relations between geometrical and acoustical configurations to enable novel designs that are optimised for specific acoustic criteria. As such, the goal of this research is to take a significant step towards understanding the mutual relationship between built spaces and their corresponding acoustic performances.

We are looking for highly motivated architects with a strong interest in computational design and data science. We particularly encourage applicants with experience in machine learning. Applicants should have the ability to work in interdisciplinary research teams and thrive in a highly collaborative environment.

Applicants must hold a Master’s degree acquired at university level (equivalent to the FHEQ-Level 7) in architecture or related fields.

We look forward to receiving your online application until February 28, 2018. Your application should include a letter of motivation, CV, portfolio of your work in academia and practice, and two recommendation letters. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Referees must send their recommendation letters directly by email to recruitingsupport[at]ethz.ch. Please address the reference letter to: Prof. Matthias Kohler, Gramazio Kohler Research, ETH Zürich.
