The construction sector plays a vital role in the development of our modern societies. With an increasing global population and urbanization, there is a growing demand for construction. However, current practices are not sustainable in absolute measures, as they contribute to environmental degradation and resource depletion. Thus, the construction industry is on the threshold of a sustainable transformation towards a circular economy.
This shift requires a high degree of collaboration between stakeholders along the value chain, such as investors, project developers, architects, resource providers, and many more. It also takes data-driven approaches to align industry strategies with global planetary boundaries. Only in this way can industries, like the construction industry, set actionable, ambitious, and foremost sufficient goals to stay in line with societal requirements and ecological possibilities.
Realdania, DTU Management, and DTUs center for absolute sustainability have granted funding for a Ph.D. project to research the development and implementation of construction platforms for the circular economy. We are looking for the right candidate for this Ph.D. project.
Business savvy, interested in the sustainable transition and the interplay between technology, circular economy, humans, and business. You have a relevant academic degree, it could be within areas of engineering, economy, or environment and you are passionate about conducting pioneering and forward-looking research. Go for it.
You must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.
Approval and Enrolment
The funding for the Ph.D. degree is subject to academic approval, and the candidate will be enrolled in one of the general degree programs at DTU.
