Doctoral fellowship in History and Theory of Architecture (2 positions)

Doctoral Program, gta Institute

The doctoral program at the Institute of History and Theory of Architecture (gta), ETH Zurich, offers two fellowship positions to start on 1 October 2024. This program focuses on the history and theory of architecture and urbanism in a wider context of cultural history, including the history and theory of art, science and technology. 

The two fully-funded fellowship positions are open for research in any area of history and theory of architecture and urbanism, and we welcome innovative proposals across geographies, methodologies, and time periods. GTA Fellows will have freedom to determine the content of their doctoral research and are not required to conform to the research interests of any particular research group.

We are seeking junior researchers with a background in the history and theory of architecture and art or architects with research experience. Suitable candidates hold a university diploma or master’s degree in architecture, history of art or related fields and can demonstrate excellent research and writing skills.
