The research group Digital Building Technologies, situated at the Institute of Technology in Architecture (ITA), Department of Architecture at ETH Zurich, seeks a highly motivated PhD candidate to work on the development of a large-scale robotic 3D concrete printing process.
This PhD research project is associated with the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research Digital Fabrication (NCCR DFAB) – an interdisciplinary research program that aims at fostering a digital building culture and development of innovative design methods and construction technologies for architecture, engineering, and construction.
Building upon the ongoing research in 3DP concrete within the NCCR DFAB, this project concerns strategic advancements in 3D printing for increasing the field of possible architectural applications of this fabrication method. The doctoral thesis will be pursued in collaboration with research colleagues from other groups at ETH Zurich specializing in construction robotics, material science, and structural engineering. The project will start upon mutual agreement, earliest by December 1st, 2022.
Within this interdisciplinary endeavour, you will co-develop methods for large-scale robotically 3D printing with concrete. The project involves designing 3DP concrete structures and the development of custom software and hardware tools for large-scale reinforced concrete prototypes. Your research will encompass design studies, automatic data generation for 3DP, the development of print-path strategies, prototyping, and testing. The project aims to culminate in large-scale demonstrators to be produced in the Robotic Fabrication Laboratory of ETH Hönggerberg.
We are looking for a talented and motivated architect, designer, or engineer with proven design and research experience. Your profile requires outstanding skills in computational design, 3D printing, and robotic fabrication, as well as an interest in hardware development. We expect programming experience (e.g. Python or C#) and hands-on experience with tool development. You must enjoy research through coding, physical prototyping, and architectural design.
You should be fluent in English, demonstrate a high level of initiative and independence, and enjoy working in a diverse and interdisciplinary research team. Furthermore, you must hold a Master's degree acquired at the university level (equivalent to the FHEQ-Level 7) in architecture or related fields.
Working at our research group and within the NCCR DFAB offers:
