Vacany Professor in Energy performance of sustainable buildings

Do you have expertise in designing, modelling and dimensioning energy performance of sustainable buildings?  Do you want to guide master students in architectural engineering in energy design?  Then apply for the 30% ZAP position starting 1 October 2023 at Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

At research level, you will work in the field of energy performance of sustainable buildings. You approach energy performance from a comprehensive framework that includes comfort, health and sustainability requirements. Technical systems (heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting) are addressed and you follow a design approach to achieve high energy performance.  

You collaborate with VUB Architectural Engineering researchers to support topics such as "life-cycle design and circularity", "assessment of built heritage", "building history", "informed design" or "parametric modelling". 

You will strengthen the international and scientific position of the research group by supervising PhD students and research programmes and acquiring research funds at regional, national and international level.  

In the field of education, you will be responsible for the English-language courses 'Energy performance of buildings' and 'Low Energy Design for Sustainable Buildings', in which you will calculate the energy concept in a design-oriented way. 

Are you interested? Apply by April 13 2023 via the VUB website. For additional information, you can contact Ine Wouters (
