Open Position for Visiting Professor in Urban Studies

**Extended Submission Deadline until 31st January 2019**

Based on the annual issue 2021 “Urban Generations. Public Space, Ageing Society and New Health Conditions”, a one-year position for a Visiting Professor in Urban Studies (temporary, part time), starting on 1 October 2020, is available at the Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space (, at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning of TU Wien.

The Visiting Professor is invited to focus on questions of urban generations in cities characterized by shifting demographic situations and an ageing society. We are interested in analysing socio-spatial phenomena of shrinkage alongside new growth scenarios influenced by inbound migration. Which spaces of opportunity for self-determined and intergenerational living (housing, public space, public services,…) do architects, planners and urban designers provide for through their work?
