We are looking for a driven, motivated and outstanding Postdoc researcher interested in sustainable development at the edge of sea and land with a focus on data collection, assessment and knowledge of GIS and web platform development.
The History of Architecture and Urban Planning Group in the Department of Architecture and the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus PortCityFutures research center in collaboration with the Industrial Design Faculty, are seeking to expand their teams with a Postdoc researcher interested in sustainable development at the edge of sea and land with knowledge of data collection, management and web platform development. The Postdoc researcher will be part of WP 5 of the Bauhaus of the Seas Lighthouse grant and will be based in the Netherlands and collaborate with a European research consortium.
The Bauhaus of the Seas initiative aims to develop solutions for climate neutrality with a particular focus on coastal cities as an interface to healthy seas, ocean and water bodies. WP 5 will develop a geospatial platform that allows for collaboration, comparison and assessment through all the steps of the project. The platform will provide access to both fixed and fluctuating GIS based data as well as for soft mapping of the project’s interventions, narratives and achievements. In doing so, it will provide the new tools for understanding maritime flows and shared waters and their relation and impact on land and port city territories. The Postdoc will take the lead in collecting data both at an European level, in relation to the pilot territories, and potentially for new members. The focus is on the pilot cases. Key questions are: How can we cross European and local data at the edge of sea and land to provide a meaningful platform for comparison? How can we enrich this data with local knowledge and outcomes of the project through soft mapping? How can we use the platform as a tool to communicate with diverse local actors
