Open Invitation: PhD Dissertation Proposals

Session #10

Under the auspices of the Graduate School of the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology, the architectural research group ‘Borders & Territories’ (B&T) invites PhD dissertation proposals to help expand its doctoral portfolio.

The B&T is part of the Department of Architecture’s research program ‘Architecture Project and its Foundations’ and is coordinated by program director dr. Marc Schoonderbeek and supervised by prof. Michiel Riedijk. We invite all interested academic and/or professional candidates who are qualified to pursue PhD-level research work aligned with the B&T group’s research agenda. The B&T program offers a rich and challenging environment that provides rewarding research experience. The group consists of diverse, international academics and professional architects. The B&T research group facilitates in-depth, independent research work that relates to the major themes of the B&T’s program as well as educational activities.

For the new round of PhD candidacies, the B&T program will accept and consider proposals that will contribute to B&T’s existing research portfolio. The successful candidate will be expected to contribute innovative, leading-edge research work to the B&T group.

Submissions accepted until 8 November 2017, 12PM.
