Applications to:


Part-time with half of the regular working time of a full-time employee. The employment is for the training and replacement of an employee during maternity leave and is initially limited until 06.04.2019 (§§ 40 No. 8, 30 TV-H in conjunction with § 21 BEEG). An extension for the duration of any parental leave is being sought.


Within the framework of the research network "New Suburbanity?" at the Department of Architecture, Urban and Landscape Planning at the University of Kassel, a maternity leave replacement of a research assistant is sought. The research associates of the research network investigate the professional debates and the current urban development practice on the "Greenfield" from different disciplinary perspectives on different scales. The network assumes that, in view of the consequences of reurbanization that are becoming particularly evident in metropolitan areas, an era of "new suburbanity" is dawning that will have a completely different character than in the past. The aim of the network is to analyze and characterize new suburbanization projects already in the course of their emergence. To this end, the consortium aims to prepare and submit a DFG research group proposal on the topic of the consortium in cooperation with other partners.



  • Collaboration in the research project on the guiding question: which relations between interior and exterior space, privacy and public sphere are established for suburban living through planning and appropriation?
  • During the period of the substitution, the preparation of a scientific publication in a professional journal on a sub-topic of the research project is expected.
  • The position holder is required to contribute to the teaching of the field to the extent of 2 SWS.
  • The candidate is required to participate in project-related seminars, workshops and, if applicable, international conferences. There is a commitment to intensive collaboration in interdisciplinary teams.



  • Completed scientific university studies (Master) in the field of landscape architecture, landscape planning or urban and regional planning.


Advantages are:

  • very good competence in scientific work, knowledge in empirical social research, familiarity with the method of functional and social space analysis in urban space.
