Landscape revisited: landscape characterization for sustainable development
We are looking for a PhD candidate who will examine and develop qualitative approaches for landscape characterization for planning that go beyond the conventional cartographic approaches, and beyond the rural – urban divide. To achieve this goal the student is expected to lean on landscape studies in combination with a historical approach or examinations of everyday life, in studies of recreation and its mobilities.
The candidate will be one of 10 PhD students within an interdisciplinary European Innovative Training Network (ITN), called TOD IS RUR: “Transit-Oriented Development (TOD) for Inclusive and Sustainable Rural-Urban Regions”. The ITN will provide unique opportunities for international and interdisciplinary learning with peers at leading European universities and with leading practitioners within the field of landscape characterization. For this candidate, close collaboration with the Center for Metropolitan Studies, Technische Universität Berlin, will be of key importance, as will collaborations with practicing landscape architects. Case studies are expected to be carried out in Sweden and Germany. More information on TOD IS RUR is available at: https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/projects/tod-is-rur/
