Open Call: Applications for 10 PhD positions on tacit knowledge in architecture
TACK / Communities of Tacit Knowledge: Architecture and its Ways of Knowing
has issued an open call for applications for 10 fully funded PhD positions exploring different aspects of tacit knowledge in architecture.
Each PhD project will become part of the wider international training program on ‘Communities of Tacit Knowledge’, which will provide the opportunity to intensively exchange with other PhD candidates and with international faculty. In addition to the academic experience, secondments will be provided by non-academic partners. Architectural offices from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Norway, Austria and Sweden, will host a PhD candidate in their office for a five-month (part-time) architectural secondment.
While each PhD candidate pursues an independent doctoral project in its own right, the different PhD projects will be grouped into three research clusters:
- Approaching Tacit Knowledge: Theories and Histories,
- Probing Tacit Knowledge: Concrete Cases and Approaches and
- Situating Tacit Knowledge: New Concepts and Theories.
Candidates should have a Master’s degree in architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, architectural theory, or related disciplines and an affinity with research in architecture, as demonstrated by research papers, journal articles or other research output or contributions to architectural culture.
The application deadline is 8 November 2019
