We are inviting applications for a 3-year position (0.8 FTE) as a postdoc researcher in the Department of Urbanism at the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology. The researcher will join an interdisciplinary team working on InPUT – Engaging Places and Communities for Integrated Peri-Urban Transitions.
InPUT is a project led by TU Delft as part of the Driving Urban Transitions (DUT) partnership, a research and innovation programme co-funded by 28 European countries and the European Commission under Horizon Europe. InPUT tackles the theme of the 15-minute city, one of the three ‘Transition Pathways’ of the DUT Partnership, and is concerned with rolling out the principles behind that model across European peri-urban areas. The project argues that ideas such as the 15-minute city become limited if applied only in the successful cities most suited to receive them and that it is crucial to extend them to peri-urban places where implementation might be more difficult but interventions towards accessibility, proximity and quality of life are more urgent. In other words, our goal is to democratise the 15-minute city.
