Postdoctoral Researcher: Urban BioCycles – Mycelium Digitalisation 342 views

The Digital Building Technologies (DBT) group at the Institute of Technology in Architecture, ETH Zurich, led by Prof. Dr. Benjamin Dillenburger, is seeking a postdoctoral researcher. The aim is to develop digital technologies to increase the productivity of construction, improve the quality and the ecological footprint of buildings, and to open up radically new design-solutions.

Responsibilities:
  • Developing methods and tools for the structural design and analysis of compression-only structures made of Mycelium
  • Development and design of optimised 3D-printed mycelium parts that demonstrate the potential of digital manufacturing
  • Adopting and calibrating existing digital subtractive methods for roughing and finishing operations on Mycelium
  • Investigating fabrication workflows and strategies (additive and/or subtractive) that enable the efficient production of geometrically complex elements
  • Identifying possible geometric constraints for the fabrication of complex-shape elements when using the adopted subtractive fabrication methods
  • Testing compression-only structural elements made of Mycelium to understand their structural behaviour

Requirements:

  • Applicant must hold doctoral degree in Architecture, Architectural Engineering, Structural Design, Structural Engineering or a related field is required
  • Expertise in computational design applied to digital/robotic fabrication and/or structural design and/or mechanics
  • Coding skills, preferably in Python
  • Interest in material-driven research
  • Ability and interest to work in a large interdisciplinary team
  • Experience in leading a small team and/or project preferred
  • Strong written, verbal and graphical communication skills (English)

Applications:

Apply online and application should have the following documents:

  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Contact information for two references
  • Portfolio
  • Sample of publications (optional)
