The research group Sustainable Buildings at Technology Campus Ghent was created in 2008. The research can be grouped into 6 areas: 1. Energy performance and indoor climate - Interaction building and HVAC systems: studies the interaction between characteristics, use, energy performance and indoor climate of buildings on the one hand and the choice, design, operation and performances of innovative HVAC systems and lighting on the other hand. 2. Timber construction and use of organic fibres: investigates sustainability and durability of structures made from timber, bamboo and wood-based products as well as insulation materials made from natural fibres. 3. Social and ecological sustainability of buildings and communities: focusses on assessment and certification of social sustainability and zero carbon emissions on buidings, community and regional scale. 4. Life cycle analysis 5. Building Information Modelling - Improved process management: develops, improves and implements BIM-based workflows for all life-cycle stages of buildings 6. Commissioning, building management and monitoring This vacancy fits within the theme "Social and Ecological sustainability of buildings and communities". Sustainable construction is seldom approached simultaneously from both an ecological and a social point of view. The research theme "Social and Ecological sustainability of buildings and communities" has made this a spearhead in recent years. The research aims to realize the transition to a construction industry with increased social and ecological impact through a process of standardization, prefabrication and industrialization in order to achieve a high degree of affordability and practicability.
Your main task is to carry out scientific research tasks in the research group Sustainable Buildings in the research theme "Social and Ecological sustainability of buildings and communities".
In addition, we expect you to carry out didactic assignments within the framework of the Bachelor and Master of civil engineering Technology
We offer full-time employment of a fixed duration for 2 years.
Interviews are scheduled on Wed 25 Sept, Th 26 Sept and Fr 27 Sept from 14:30.
