Researcher at Singapore-ETH Centre

ETH Zurich is one of the leading universities of the world with a strong focus on science and engineering. In 2010 it established the Singapore-ETH Centre (SEC) in collaboration with the National Research Foundation (NRF) to do interdisciplinary research on pressing problems.

The centre currently runs several research programmes with the Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) as one of the programmes. It is home to a community of over 100 PhD, postdoctoral and Professorial researchers working on diverse themes related to sustainable cities and resilient infrastructure systems. In the course of their work, researchers actively collaborate with universities, research institutes, industry, and government agencies with the aim of offering practical solutions.

Project background

Research Project: New Urban Agendas Under Planetary Urbanisation

While discussions on urban sustainability have focused on cities and urban regions, many agricultural territories are equally exposed to rapid and far-​reaching urban transformation processes with massive social and environmental implications, opening a research gap for ‘agri-​urbanisms’. 
The New Urban Agendas under Planetary Urbanisation module aims to address the gap by analysing selected processes of ‘extended urbanisation’ in agricultural territories across Europe and Asia.

The module combines detailed qualitative analysis with quantitative geospatial analysis and modelling, thereby linking the social, political and cultural aspects of urbanisation to transformations in land use patterns, soil ecosystems and ecosystem services.

Job description

  • Developing a relevant framework to research processes of extended urbanisation in Southeast Asian palm oil territories with a specific focus on the notion of operationalisation of territory.
  • Preparing and conducting qualitative field research in Johor, Malaysia.
  • Organising, executing, and running workshops with an international research team.
  • Producing meaningful research output and minimum one journal article on extended urbanisation in Southeast Asian palm oil territories.

We offer

We offer a 15 months fixed-term contract.

Your profile

The candidate should

  • have a master’s degree in landscape architecture or equivalent relevant background
  • have experience in the field of urban and territorial research
  • have experience in teaching and organisation of academic workshops, conferences, and exhibitions
  • be able to carry out qualitative research
  • have at least basic knowledge in Bahasa Indonesia/Melayu
